Schools for 21 Century is an EU educational project that focuses on improving audiovisual and digital literacy for secondary school students and teachers.
1. To increase the quality of education and training, combining higher levels of excellence and attractiveness with opportunities for all, including those in disadvantaged situation by using accessible, affordable technologies in school.
2. To explore new ways of teaching, learning and assessment in innovative way. Being innovative is about looking beyond what we currently do well, identifying the big ideas of tomorrow and putting them into practice.
3. To develop teachers´ integrated teaching skills, motivating and enabling students to be socially conscious, critical thinkers, decision makers, etc. and this can be better achieved if students first possess a high level of literacy (reading, listening, viewing, observing,…) which is essential to the
effective understanding of knowledge and communication of ideas.
4. To implement cutting edge digital skills and audiovisual literacy through a collaboration with experts and through connected learning at participant schools.
This project is aimed at secondary students, teachers, student teachers, universities, teacher training centres, university professors and professionals of communication.
