FSE30080 - Learning tools

Learning Tools is a set of coordinated actions aimed at reducing and preventing early school leaving with the aim of promoting access to education and training with formal, non-formal and informal education pathways for the acquiring of specific skills for pupils and teaching staff. The educational measures are:

  1. training on awareness raising on the issue of early school leaving;
  2. strengthen teachers' competences on teaching and new technologies and the dynamics of early school leaving also through exchange of good practices in transnational mobility;
  3. training for the linguistic reinforcement of pupils also in transnational mobility.
  4. workshops for learners to acquire key competences for lifelong learning;
  5. training for teachers for the acquisition of key competences for lifelong learning.

FSE30348 - Last round

Last Round is aimed at accompanying students towards a successful conclusion of lower secondary education (or middle school) and its final exam. Between January and June 2020 different training activities will take place with small groups of students, with a minimum ratio of 1 trainer for 3 students, as well as individualised activities for some students. Students will be supported in the preparation to the final exam with regards to the acquisition of core curriculum competences but also study methods and strategies.

FSE30351 - Energy Start

Energy Start is a project offering training activities in the first two years of upper secondary school to reduce underachievement and early school leaving. The activities will take place between January and June 2020 and between September and December 2020.

The main aim is supporting students in the development of study methods and strategies. Interventions also aim at favouring a welcoming start of the school year, especially for students attending the first year, and to support reorientation procedures, when needed. Interventions will involve small groups of students, in a 1 to 3 ratio between trainer/educator and students. The project will also offer individualised interventions. The students involved will be those attending the first two years of the secondary schools participating in the project. Priority will be given to students attending the first year.

It offers residential camp activities for pupils who are going to attend first year of lower secondary education in the following school year. Activities will be focused on study methods and strategies, as well as the conscious use of technology, in order to support students in the transition and equip them with adequate competences and self-awareness.

The summer camp will take place between the end of June and the end of July 2020, and will last one week, from Sunday to Saturday. The camp foresees a maximum of 15 participants selected among those attending the participating schools.

FSE30341 - InnovaTive CS teAchiNg methoDs to foster kEy coMpetences (TANDEM)

The TANDEM project offers two training courses, for teachers of middle and high school. The training aims at enabling teachers to promote key competences, by bringing new technologies and approaches (such as coding, computational thinking, and educational robotics) into their classrooms. Particular attention will be dedicated to the adoption of software engineering principles, in order to increase the quality of the final product obtained by the students and facilitate the process of creating the solution.
