Erasmus+ 2015-2018

Learn and share!

Welcome to Rikantila school´s Erasmus website. We are happy to tell you that we have started an Erasmus+ KA2 -project in September 2015. T his project will last for three years, 2015-2018. There are five schools in five different countries participating in this project; Metsküla Algkool from Estonia, Armenoi Primary School from Greece, C.P. Salvador Vega Berros from Spain, Sandikli Nazmi Topcuoglu Ortaokulu from Turkey and Rikantilan koulu from Finland.

Project summary
As the world is rapidly changing, the methods and teaching approaches of yesterday will not prepare our students properly for the world they will be living in. We need a totally new approach for both teaching and learning to help our students to achieve 21st century skills like creativity, communication, collaboration, digital competences, critical thinking and personal responsibility. Teachers from five tiny village primary schools from Estonia, Finland, Greece, Spain and Turkey believe that one possible way to meet these objectives is bringing mobile devices, especially tablets, into teaching and learning process.

Our project is called "Learn and share!" as all patricipants, both teachers and pupils, will be involved in learning, collaboration and sharing results and experience. Teachers will create learning scenarios and lesson plans which will be transformed in the form of eTwinning projects where students will collaborate with peers both from their own as well as partner schools. Our pupils will also have the opportunity to work face to face with pupils from partner schools during our international students´camps.

Each project year will have its own subject area:
1. Social Sciences, PE and Health Education
2. Maths and Science
3. Literacy, Art and Languages

During the 36 month period we will have three joint teacher training sessions and three camps for pupils. We will carry out four eTwinning projects and compile different booklets with lesson plans and user guides for tablet applications. We also hope that teachers from other schools and countries will use our materials and experience to include mobile learning in their own teaching.

So let´s learn and share!
