"Creating an Innovative Platform of Communication and Teaching in a Digital Society"
The main assumption behind the project is the understanding that the teacher is the key figure in the educational process whose skills and competences are decisive for the quality and effectiveness of education. Most of the countries in the world face serious issues in this regard. Among these are : 1) shortage of teachers ( especially young instructors) because of low economic incentives, hence low prestige of the teacher's profession and ineffective government policies; 2) inadequate professional qualification of a considerable number of teachers; 3) insufficient motivation to upgrade professional qualification.
The project team consists of seven different institutional partners (schools, an NGO, and two regional departments of education) from Bulgaria, Malta, the Netherlands, and Turkey . Thus the project includes organizations that operate in diverse socio-economic, cultural and educational contexts. The target group is made up of about 50 English language instructors and 30 pupils. In addition, the project will reach about 100 teachers and pupils from schools not involved in the project, stake-holders and the broader public.
The project involves the following main activities:
- developing an innovative platform of communication;
- training sessions for teachers and pupils;
- mobility activities;
- meetings with stake-holders;
- summer schools;
- mobile exhibition;
