Something amazing is about to happen in Salamanca:
WHO are we? We are five schools all of us are linked with primary and secondary education. Let us introduce ourselves: Colegio Santísima Trinidad (Spain), Holla 10-årige Skole Ulefoss (Norway), 201st Primary School St Kiril and Metodiy (Bulgaria), TÖÖLÖN ALA- ASTEEN KOULU (Finland), IMS PRIVATE SCHOOL (Cyprus).
WHAT are we going to do? We are going to work together for 2 years in a project named FUNTASTIC: motivation starts here, in which our pupils are the main characters.
WHERE are we going to work? We are going to work in 5 different places: Spain, Cyprus, Norway, Bulgaria, and Finland. Although we are from different parts of Europe, all of us are going to share all our experiences in this FUNTASTIC site.
WHY now? Because all of us have detected lack of motivation in our classroom every day. Why do students like science or history outside schools and hate it in class? We want to change that. So we have decided to work together in order to make classes funnier and easier. Additionally, our main aim is trying to link curricular content to new ways of learning based on playing and having fun.
HOW are we going to do it? Easy, we are going to share new practices and methodologies in this blog with all the people or schools who want to change their way of teaching. We are truly committed to one objective: making education funnier and easier.
WHEN? It is simple…NOW. To start, we have our first transnational meeting next week, in Salamanca, Spain. Do you want to join us?
