Consequently, the aims of our project WISH are:
-To raise an awareness for the importance of social inclusion among the youngsters
-To help students gain 21st century skills by using the project based learning approach
-To support personal and professional development of teaching staff in order to improve their methodology on 21st century skills and inclussiveness of their students from different marginal groups such as: refugees, immigrants, and handicapped people.
-To improve undergraduate teacher training curricula (partner universities) and school curricula(partner schools) in regard to improve 21 st century skills of students and ensure social inclusion of all students who are in disadvantaged groups by integrating best practices to curricula.
-To improve the students’ key competencies (communication in foreign languages, Social and civic competences, Digital competence, leraning to learn competence)
Finally, we believe that the project should be carried out transnationally for the following reasons:
-Social exclusion is a global problem and, therefore, we need to find global solutions to prevent it. Our partners experiences and good practices will provide the participants with a wider insight on how to tackle the problem.
-Such collaboration will give a momentum to increase the impact of the PBL endeavours in our schools and it will give all the partners the opportunity to do some job shadowing
-We will also benefit from the collaboration between universities and high schools. Involved universities prepare future teachers and the Spanish High School also offers vocational studies to train Social Inclusion technicians (Tertiary level). Their expertise will represent a great asset to the rest of high schools from different EU countries. On the other hand, high schools experiences and practices will provide the universities with essential fieldwork to update their courses and improve teaacher training programs.
