The topics relevant to this year’s European Innovative Teaching Award theme included technology, artificial intelligence, virtual reality and programming.
The participating students aged 14-17 years old came from three schools in Spain, Italy and the Netherlands.
The multidisciplinary approaches used in this project were well-suited. Students developed competencies in modern technology, international social skills, and a passion for combining subjects. The project team prioritized inclusivity for students with fewer opportunities, using digital tools like the eTwinning platform to facilitate networking and learning.
This project creatively utilized learning spaces, integrating artificial intelligence and virtual reality into the curriculum while emphasizing sustainability. The cross-sectoral approach required students to combine language, heritage, technology, social skills, and international teamwork, earning praise from the jury. The standout feature was the integration of virtual reality and artificial intelligence AI into the curriculum.
A dedicated and experienced consortium collaborated to ensure the success of this project. The knowledge acquired during this project will be a valuable addition to future endeavours.
Impact and output
The impact on the group of participating students is clearly evident through their exchange experience. Additionally, the newly developed teaching packages have been integrated into the curriculum. Importantly, students with fewer opportunities were actively engaged in the project, making it a noteworthy example for future secondary school projects. The long-term impact will become apparent as 'The future is real' disseminates and becomes a regular part of the curriculum.
