We visited the San Ignacio de Loyola Ikastetxea school – in San Sebastian, Spain, on October 9th 2017.
All here is about ‘cooperative learning’ so Acer Chromebooks are the perfect choice as students are capable to work on the same document by sharing practices.
Indeed, the school refers to 21st century skills, a broad set of knowledge, skills, work habits, and character traits that are believed — by educators, school reformers, college professors, employers, and others — to be critically important to success in today’s world.
What do 21st century skills include?
Critical thinking, problem solving, reasoning, analysis, interpretation, synthesizing information with a clear focus on Personalized Learning allowing each student to progress and easily cooperate within a team.
A team of teachers presented their pedagogical contents to us, highlighting that their main goal is to create their own contents leveraging on videos and exercises available on Google platforms.
One example? They teach math by using Khanacademy.org app (US) and they actually achieve two scopes: learning math and english!
They also presented to us the Creaction!, an online training platform developed by the University of Deusto to foster entrepreneurial skills via a five steps journey.
We also visited some classrooms and we had the chance to hear from students about the Computer of the future and we were impressed how easily they could imagine it… our favorite? A FOLDABLE notebook 🙂
Below you can see a few pictures taken during our journey meeting students.
