Comenius School Partnership
Project basis The main goal of our Project is to exchange teaching practices, methods, materials about those parts of the curriculum that are not included in a concrete area, but they are in most of them and in the general project of all schools or at least they should be. Besides they are teaching and learning through practicing more than theory, it means with procedures and values objectives more than with contents. We all will elaborate common materials and ways of teaching them. The teachers and the oldest children will have access to a collaborative platform in order to share and participate. It will have a part as a web site, visible for all over the world and a private one, as an Intranet, visible only for the members of our Comenius project.. The topic of the project is chosen among the subjects that are already included in the curriculum of all schools. We will just improve materials and methods for it.
