Exciting science for sustainable development - students' exchange
Nordplus Junior 2017
2017 – 2018
The present mobility project is a continuation of Cooperation project under the EEA/Norway Grants Scholarship Programme "Exciting science for sustainable development", which was carried out by Narva Language Lyceum and Narvic Upper-Secondary School in the period of 2014 - 2016. The main aim of that project was to work out an e-compendium of interactive tasks for upper-secondary school students on the topic of national parks (protected areas) as a way to integrate the green growth and sustainability issues into teaching process.
In the present project there will be students' exchanges arranged in order to test these interactive tasks in international groups in Norway and Estonia. Each mobility will last for one week. The project outcomes for students (11 from each country): they will develop their key competences, learn about Estonia and Norway and meet new people, test the learning materials together and work in international teams, learn about Estonian and Norwegian nature, become a better team locally and acquire experience of participation in an international project, which will help them in their future life and work. The teachers taking part in the project will get the testing results and will improve or update their tasks, they will learn to teach multicultural and diverse groups. The project will strengthen and develop cooperation between two schools in Estonia and Norway and promote the development of quality, creativity and innovation in education by means of interactive learning activities.
