Students from T.G. Masaryka, Moravské Budějovice, Czech Republic have been working on project mission “New Park” as part of their PULCHRA project.
PULCHRA, Schools as Living Labs, Make it Open, OSHub, PHERECLOS, CONNECT and MOST, funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program, work in the same direction: actively involving local communities in the teaching and learning process to help European schools becoming hotbeds of innovation and agents of community well-being.
The 7 projects promote the concept of open schooling: a concrete new way to approach science education programs by fostering collaboration between schools and local communities. Students, teachers, and their communities are invited to develop research and innovation projects to address relevant local challenges, contribute to community development, and promote an active global citizenship attitude.
Sharing the same goal, the 7 projects developed common channels to raise awareness on the opportunities of open schooling and on the different methodologies to implement this concept. Find their latest guidelines, best practices, research outcomes, and upcoming events by following @OStogether and by signing up for the Open Schooling together e-newsletter.
Any other ongoing open schooling initiative is welcome to join at any point. Please contact OStogetherH2020@gmail.com
