We consider identity in school cluster (AE) a
practice and a culture that values openness to innovation, the desire
to do better by sharing experiences, doing everything in a sustainable
way. The AE is still featured by an international dimension and the
promotion of European citizenship and currently, the AE feels very
motivated by the process of recovery its internationalization. This
European mobility plan contributes to the achievement of some of the
objectives of its educational project (cf.
http://crelorosae.net/joomla/index.php/documentos). The AE intends to
keep its European dimension by developing the following strategic areas:
- Respecting the cultures and habits of other European partners
stimulating a pedagogical practice based on the values of tolerance and
respect, thus contributing to the elimination of stereotypes and
prejudices in the educational community;
- Integrating students in projects with a European dimension;
- Encouraging collaborative work processes using the eTwinning platform and other online networks.
A proposal for mobility of 11 teachers (about 10% of AE teachers)
who will participate in three European courses suitable for their
training needs and the objectives described above, to be held in Finland
and Canary (New learning environments; "School management and Healthy
teachers - Healthy school "). The choice of these participants was made
according to the AE training needs described above, from an invitation
issued to the group of teachers.
To accomplish this project and achieve these goals, a European
partner was elected which would guarantee excellent results. Finland was
chosen for being a universally acknowledged fact that it is,
repeatedly, one of the world's countries in which students have better
results in PISA tests and whose teaching quality is considered
exemplary. It is also commonly referred that teacher training is
exemplary in that country and they choose the best to teach. Finally,
echoes about the quality and accuracy of management are worthy of
mention in most educational forums.
We know that the organizer of the courses, "EduKarjala", has already
20 years of experience in the management of programs: Lifelong Learning
(LLP), adult education and European study visits organization and that
this organization has the support and partnership of the University of
Eastern Finland. We have reasons to believe in both the quality of
courses and in the training organizers, as well as in the richness of
the practical course content.
This project gives teachers also the opportunity to share and
discuss with other participants the issues of training, to upgrade
skills and professional profiles, to improve the quality of professional
It is enhanced the appreciation of the teaching profession through
motivation and personal and professional satisfaction and a very
positive impact on teaching practice (creation of new learning
environments, promoting innovation and excellence, appreciation of
healthy lifestyle practices, ...) and the daily relationships
established between peers, with students and others members from the
The contact with other partners will allow a greater understanding
of the policies of organizations and a greater empowerment of the action
at European level. Informal conversations are also a benefit, allowing
the development of English language proficiency and the discovery of new
forms of cooperation, which will greatly contribute to the construction
of a European scale and identity.
Because of this internationalization, the school cluster expects
that research, reflections, training and the developed new practices /
products practices / products have relevance and applicability, can be
transferred to the practices of other European countries, and may be
especially useful in minority groups, marginalized and ethnic
The group is committed to promote the development of the project on
the web page, social networks and other usual means of communication. A
handbook with the project’s best practices will be published.
