This page presents the results of the project

The partner schools have found out that in their systems of the education there are insufficient school programmes dealing with the acquisition of the 21st century skills and lack of new motivating teaching-learning strategies and methods centred on pupils’ needs.
Too much theory in class has led to low levels of the pupils regarding social, civic and intercultural skills. The well-being is also at a low level.

The pupils who come to high school from different social backgrounds do not know how to react in the new educational environment and they do not feel integrated, they become bored, hot-tempered stubborn, even aggressive, low emotional wellbeing. Some of them present symptoms of stress or isolation. All these lead to poor academic results and early leaving school.

The OERs posted on this page come to help the pupils and teachers in their educational process.
