The InEdu Project aims to:
- promote active learning based on observation, experiment and conclusion making which are part of the scientific method;
- develop teaching methods and tools to help primary school teachers prepare and conduct more fascinating lessons which can stimulate the children’s natural curiosity;
- invite teachers to exchange their educational methods and tools so that they can develop their skills and create interesting and effective methodology on the basis of the experience gained during the project.
The first group of participants are the teachers interested in developing active methods of work with children to enhance their natural curiosity. A selected group of teachers will be invited to devise the methods and share good practices.
Thanks to the tools developed for the project primary school pupils will participate in interesting lessons which can develop their ability to think critically and stimulate their creativity.
Academics and parents
Academics who run a number of courses within the project can share their scientific experiences with teachers. Parents will find out about the learning tools developed within the project and will be able to propagate the methods of creative teaching at the schools their children attend.
We want the project to turn teaching into a process which is satisfactory and interesting to all those who take part in it.
We aim to make the methods and tools developed for teachers within the InEdu project as stimulating for children’s curiosity as possible. Teachers working with children introduce them to a scientific process, which can use different types of reasoning: induction, deduction as well as empirical and creative reasoning. We want to show how to make use of these types of reasoning in working with children so that during their classes they can build up their knowledge of the world in a more empirical way.
