Student Competences as Outputs of Research-based Education – SCORE (2017-1-ES01-KA201-038441)
SCORE project is supporting the development of a school culture that places an emphasis on evidence based decision making, scientifically based:
- By using results of Discipline-based Education Research (DER), which combines knowledge of teaching and learning with deep knowledge of discipline-specific science content. This approach will help take into account the discipline-specific difficulties learners face and to make use of the specialised intellectual and instructional resources that could facilitate student understanding.
- By employing research methods to display objective procedures to evaluate whether the teaching is effective. This will be performed by designing formative Computer Assisted Assessment (CAA) activities and by monitoring student’s results by means of Learning Analytics Tools.
In particular, SCORE project is aiming to help improve students’ achievement and attitude towards STEM subjects, through (1) development of training modules in Sciences and Maths for lower secondary school students (12-15 years old) to be integrated in the school LMSs, (2) training teachers and (3) testing the STEM curriculum support materials by enrolling students and their teachers in the Score Academy.
Teamwork, Training and Technology Network (540029-LLP-1-2013-1-IT-COMENIUS-CNW)
The TTTNet project is supporting teachers in science and math subjects who should become promoters of innovative educational process by implementing new teaching methods based on the “learning by doing”, critical thinking, active learning – approaches which stimulate students’ activity in the classroom and their willingness for further learning as an effective strategy to producing multi-skilled workforce that supports Europe’s drive towards a competitive knowledge-based economy.
