Due to the covid19-pandemic, we were forced to reschedule our meeting plans for November 2020. It had become impossible to meet in Deggendorf (Germany) to work on our project goals. We had meeting online from 09 - 20 November. The backbone remained the project setup (activities organised and carried out by students, assessment, reflection and database input (on Track'nTeach) by teachers. The programme is available under the "Deggendorf online" menu item

Toolbox: TracknTeach is FS21's pedagogical toolbox

Meeting in Esch-sur-Alzette

Joint-staff training for teachers and pupil blended learning project in Esch-sur-Alzette (Luxembourg)

from Sunday 6/10 - Saturday 12/10/2019. The programme can be found here.

"A special kind of pupil exchange" is how the Luxembourg newspaper "Luxemburger Wort" describes our joint-staff training mobility and blended mobility of learners in Esch-sur-Alzette. Indeed, a special encounter it was. Teachers trained each other by exchanging different assessment methodes while pupils did their self-organised activities with focus on science, technology and art. The excellent catering at LHC and inspiring visits to the Differdange science centre and Belval blast furnaces and learning centre were the icing on the cake.

What we do

Ten partners are working on the development of a teaching material and  assessment toolbox for 21st-century teaching. This is a KA2 project of the March 2018 Erasmus+ call.

How we do it

10 Partners exchange good practices. We meet twice per year and work online in between. We use our horizontal management system with shared responsibility.

Why we do it

Youngsters deserve to be motivated by being taught with 21st-century tools. We teach them to prepare them for the future, not the past.

Our concept

Towards the acquisition of 21st-century skills through effective and innovative teaching and assessment.
