Today is the very first official day of the "From Europe 1010BC to Europe 2020PC" project. The project will continue for three years and involve partners from Estonia, Poland, Italy, Slovenia and Finland.
The target groups of our project are the elementary level students and the teachers, but we also try to make an impact on the lower-secondary level students, students' families, the whole shools' staff members and the local community.
The focus is mostly on finding out about how comunication has happened and developed throughout the history of the world (especially the time period from 1010 BC to 2020AD) and developing our ICT skills (therefore also the reference to PCs = the era of personal computers) through integrated learning.
We aim to turn modern devices like smart phones and tablets etc from toys, which they very often happen to be to our students at present, to valuable tools for learning that help to individualize the study process and, hopefully, also make it more enjoyable for all parties involved.
We hope that this kind of modernization in the sudy methods will, in the long run, help us to reduce the numbers of students who don't like school or who struggle at school, or even worse, who eventually decide to drop out of school.
All the best,
