The project “Innovative ICT-based training approach to reshape school education and training – sCOOL-IT” (project ref. № 2019-1-BG01-KA201-062543) is an Erasmus+, KA2 project in the field of School education, in which European Center for Quality, Bulgaria takes part.
The main aim of the project is to create an innovative ICT challenge-based training approach for supporting educators in the process of conveying knowledge, promoting the development of key competences (digital, science, mathematical, etc.) among their students.
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, during the first year of sCOOL-IT project implementation (01.11.2019 – 01.11.2020), the consortium managed to achieve several important milestones. One of the most significant ones was connected with the development of Intellectual Output 1: sCOOL-IT Web Adventure Portal. The draft versions of 36 WebQuests in 6 school subjects (Mathematics & Logics; Biological sciences; History and Cultural heritage; Geography; Physics; Philosophy) were elaborated by partners according to predefined criteria and guidelines. The WebQuests were based on the results from Analysis of secondary school systems in consortium countries to identify crossing points in curricula in the 6 thematic fields and a Benchmarking matrix. Peer review is a task at hand after which partners will proceed with the integration of the WebQuests in online environment, translation and pilot testing. The work on IO2 sCOOL-IT comprehensive training programme was initiated with a template for development of the training programme to ensure the consistency of the contents and different sections. The development of IO3 Web Adventure development Toolkit is planned to start later on in 2021 as envisaged in the project.
