|FLI CREATE is a two-year international project carried out in partnership of five European countries: Italy, Hungary, Spain, Slovenia and Poland, under the Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership.
We are educational institutions and the main objective of our project is to improve the schoolperformance of European students, by using more effective pedagogical methods (FLIpped CREative Awareness TEaching).
European societies and economies are facing the challenge of “emerging complexity”: sudden and continuous changes, digital and technological innovations, changes in the labour market, demographic trends, etc. Many of the current professions did not exist 10 years ago and many new jobs will be created in the future. We will keep pace with this change by “investing in skills and, consequently, rethinking education and lifelong learning systems. Education and training can improve Europe’s resilience. It is no longer enough to equip young people with a fixed set of skills or knowledge;
THEY MUST DEVELOP RESILIENCE, A BROAD COMPETENCE AND THE ABILITY TO ADAPT TO CHANGES.
The specific objectives:
• Improved school performance of the schools involved;
• Tested and active didactic approach, Student centred” flipped classroom;
• Developed skills from teachers:
a) in the use of an active teaching method (PBL, Coop. Learn, etc.);
b) on the creativity and problem solving necessary for the application of the active methods;
c) in the production and use of technologies and digital resources for teaching.
What does the FLI CREATE project offer?
•Curriculum to teach with Flipped classroom approach
•Toolkit to train teachers on the Flipped classroom approach
Who can benefit from the FLI CREATE project?
• Educators: teachers, trainers of creativity
• Training institutions
The learning process involves:
– initial self-learning
– two learning activities in mobility
– learning activities in the partner countries directed to teachers who have not participated in mobility
– flipped classroom pilot testing.
The pilot experiment will be the heart of learning. This learning will be crystallized in a peer learning activity. The project intends to move from a still predominantly transmissive pedagogy to the use of a pedagogy in which students actively build their knowledge by researching and synthesizing information, as happens while watching video lessons, or by tackling problem-solving and interacting with the others. The FC is student-centered and promotes teaching processes converging with students’ cognitive styles; it requires teachers to conceive and develop students’ self-learning (at home) and to conceive and develop their learning “supported” (in the classroom) by “reversing” their professional practice. To facilitate the teacher’s ability to customize, assistive teaching technology will be introduced, a “Virtual Robot” called Wilson that assists the teacher. The project is carried out by a SP made up of schools and innovators in the school field.
