IES Playamar

IES Playamar is a Bilingual Secondary School located in Torremolinos, in the south of Spain. It was founded in 1998. It is an ICT center. This school year our educational center serves 912 students aged between 12 and 20 years old.

This is the School Link :

We offer ESO in fully bilingual (English) mode. And as post-compulsory education: Baccalaureate in the itineraries of Social, Humanities and Technology.

We also have two cycles of Vocational Training in the families of “Computer Systems and Networks” and “Electromechanics of Motor Vehicles in Dual Mode”.

The main problems of our context, based on the figures of the INE and the PISA report referenced to 2016 data, are:
-The high number of unemployed (22, 4%) and the consequent emigration.
-The growing number of students who leave school prematurely and the failure in education (25.8%, among the highest at the regional and national level)
-The low level of school performance (30%, among the highest at regional and national level)

Our school assists students from different socioeconomic contexts, and the training opportunities are not the same for everybody. We have a considerable number of immigrant students with special needs. Many families are not able to Give adequate support to your children in the school curriculum. These conditions lead to the direction and cloister of the school to take additional measures to balance them. We have a school accompaniment program during non-school hours in the center.

The school, as well as the region, possess an enormous natural heritage, in reality excessively exploited and deteriorated by the tourism and that, with the support of a good project, we are likely to make it sustainable by encouraging growth smart and inclusive (ET 2020). Through:

– Social Entrepreneurship, with a more efficient, supportive and responsible use of resources.
– Promoting inclusive growth through the promotion of multiculturalism among young people.

The teachers of the IES Playamar want to change this reality excessively dependent on seasonality and tourism.
Creating synergies, partnerships, initiatives that facilitate the start of a new development model, capable of giving an impulse, not only  economic and sustainable, to our environment but also in solidarity.

A vision shared by all the partners of this project was that, to achieve success in its implementation, it was
It is necessary to guarantee a team of quality teachers, motivated and committed. Hence, we agreed on the following
criteria that we have applied in all schools of our association.

Where is IES Playamar?

The reasons for joining us are:

1) IES Playamar teachers want to change that described reality. We intend to preserve and disseminate this ancestral knowledge about these crafts, especially those that are in danger of disappearing. And, on the other, to increase the employability of young people by helping them to start from the detection of opportunities in the craft sector using ICTs, so that they generate value and that, as their ancestors did, they can continue living from it. .

2) We need to continue with our strategic internationalization plan that began two years ago. Erasmus + is an opportunity. Regarding our potential, as a center, with the contributions to the project, indicate that:

1) Our teaching team is involved in the main relevant areas of knowledge of the project. The departments involved are: Art; History; Technology; Economy; Computing; English; Orientation and the management team

. 2) In this project the director, the association of fathers and mothers (families) and the administrative staff actively participate because, for them, it is also important to compare our organization and management with other educational systems.

3) The school interacts and collaborates with cultural institutions and craft associations in the area.

Fjölbrautaskóli Norðurlands Vestra

Fjölbrautaskóli Norðurlands Vestra

Fjolbrautaskoli Nordurlands vestra (FNV) has 506 students, it is a comprehensive high school in northwestern Iceland. It is located in Sauðárkrókur, which has a population of 2,598 inhabitants. FNV offers a wide variety of vocational programs. Specifically in Art, Computer Science, Carpentry and Paramedicine.

This is the web site of the school

We also have distance training courses. The students are between 12 and 20 years old. The social life in the school is very good, we have several social clubs for students. In addition to Icelandic we teach Danish, English, German and French. We have a “Fablab” inside the school in cooperation with the town hall.

The Fablab is equipped with several 3D printers and the staff is willing to help teachers and students learn. MOTIVATION We want to continue with our internationalization project that we started in 2016. We have introduced it in our Annual Plan. The main motivation for the FNV to get involved in the project is that we are aware of the importance of educating students in programming for the 21st century.

Where is Fjölbrautaskóli Norðurlands Vestra?

Our school is working on the implementation of programming as part of our curriculum. In Fjolbrautaskoli Nordurlands vestra (FNV) there are some programming courses, but they have been offered as part of the electronics studies. In our environment there are many craft trades that are being lost, which forces our young people to leave our town and go to Reykjavik. We want to create the necessary circumstances to help our students to have business opportunities and avoid depopulation of our people. We are excited about this Erasmus project the possibility of helping to preserve those ancestral trades, which require artisanal skills, through the use of technology. For us, we think it is the key to the survival of our beautiful people.

Our educators have the following experiences and capacities with which they contribute to the project: – We have been working with 3D students for years to solve social problems and we have a network of companies involved in our workshops and activities. -All the teachers involved have the technical knowledge, skills, administrative support and sufficient experience to successfully execute all aspects of this project. Our strengths are consistent and aligned with the achievement of the objectives of this project.

A. Escolas Dr. Serafim Leite

European projects are still a recent reality in the Dr. Serafim Leite School Group (AESL).

Web of the school :

However, in recent years, they have gained a relevant dimension, with the need to (re) formulate a project adequate to the needs and objectives of the surrounding reality, which systematically brings together the entire line of action that involves the AESL’s internationalization strategy: the European Development Plan (EDP).

At AESL there is a conviction that within the global dynamics the European dimension of education is an aspect to develop and deepen. It is assumed that European citizenship has to be more than mere political rhetoric and, in this context, synergies are sought with other entities that want to share knowledge, develop projects and carry out activities that, jointly promote the progressive assumption of the European dimension of citizenship. It is imperative to value the improvement of pedagogical quality as well as the internationalization of the institution itself, reinforcing the cooperation between transnational partners, with the aim of innovating in its pedagogical, logistical, administrative and organizational practices. This document must be seen as a dynamic instrument that can incorporate changes to any change in the organizational context and must also be seen as a tool to improve the quality of teaching and susceptible to adaptation to changes in educational policy. The PDE therefore constitutes a guiding and coordinating document for the various projects with European scope and subsequently as an instrument for operationalizing the strategies included in it.

Where is the School?

PRIORITIES The AESL’s self-assessment team carried out work, embodied in the respective report as well as in the improvement plan, having found that the grouping revealed the need for training in terms of quality, understood at various levels: pedagogical quality, quality of service provided to user, quality of processes and procedures, quality of learning and teaching.

  • The school’s internationalization process is part of the globalization context, with economic, social, educational and cultural policies. In this sense, the following are established as priorities of the present plan: Implementation of new methodologies and technologies in the teaching processes;
  • Combat failure and school dropout;
  • Adoption of good practices in international education;
  • Sharing of good practices of AESL;
  • Creation of new forms of relationship between schools and European institutions;
  • Development of actions that allow the acquisition of skills centered on students and for students;
  • Development of actions that allow the acquisition of skills centered on teachers and non-teachers
  • . Development of language skills;

Mendelova Střední škola

Mendelova High School in Nový Jičín (Czech Republic) has 823 students and 84 teachers. The objectives of our multiannual plan are to promote methodological change based on ICTs (programming), the resolution of social problems with 3D printing and enhance entrepreneurship based on the opportunities of our cultural heritage.

This is the website of the school

The main motivation is the interest of our school for the conservation of historical and cultural heritage from the promotion of social enterprise. Help our students to detect opportunities for entrepreneurship in the European sector of art, crafts, protection and promotion of cultural heritage.

In addition, Nový Jičín is located in the Moravskoslezský region, one of the weakest economically in the republic. However, it is surrounded by many artisanal businesses of great cultural value that are in the process of disappearing because they cannot compete in a globalized world. They are the great forgotten public policies. Finally, an additional reason to participate in this project is to offer our students the chance to see other realities. We want them to learn to open their minds. Our school belongs to a small town located in a remote area north of Moravia, in an increasingly global world, this project, in addition to the skills and the change in methodology that will mean for the school, will help us get them out of their environment endogamic.

Where is Mendelova střední škola?

The main potential and capabilities of the center for the project are: 1) Its multilingualism. At school we teach five languages: English, German, Spanish, French and Russian. This fact is of great relevance for the project, with a view to the translation of the final materials in several languages. Some of their teachers use the CLIL teaching methods.

The school has been accredited to take the ECDL test.

2) We have three higher education training cycles (Administration and companies, ICT and health).

The first two will be of great help to detect entrepreneurial opportunities from the use of virtual reality in European crafts, for example, creating audio guides made with virtual reality with the students to preserve the knowledge of craft crafts at risk of disappearing. 3)

The center equipment. The school building is very well equipped. It has 9 computer labs, 2 tablet labs, 10 interactive whiteboards, 3D printers, etc. All staff have a high level of English and extensive experience in international projects (Comenius, Leonardo, Erasmus +).
