"NON UNO DI MENO"

"NOT ONE LESS"

This project includes three schools, two from Italy and one from Spain. It is going to start in 2018 and it will finish in 2020.The project ‘s aim is to apply the Tinkering methodology in the pre-school, to introduce Coding and Robotic activities in the primary school and to experiment CLIL methodology in STEM subjects.The project comes out from the awareness that all the partners work in schools where there are families in situations of socio- economic and working hardship and where there are a lot of pupils with disabilities and different ethnic backgrounds. It aims to promote social inclusion enhancing the different learning styles and the different intelligences for an effective integration into the working world.Each country, each with its own resources and its own teaching experiences, will share good practices, learning from them and building on them innovative teaching paths that can be used in their respective schools and that can be disseminated according to the dissemination plan.The project objectives are:1. Developing abstraction capacity2. Developing creative thinking to find new solutions3. Developing problem solving skills : identify, analyse, implement and verify possible solutions having as objective the search for the best solution.Digital literacy and language competence are the essential life skills to prepare children to become future 21st century citizens, active, aware and involved in an inclusive society, in an increasingly globalized world. They represent a challenge for teachers to innovate teaching and improve learning results.PREPARATORY ACTIVITIES : September 2018a. e-Twinning registration, on the project portalb.

We will propose the experimentation carried out to the University for it to become the object of research.The project has been written in Italian as it has been send to the Italian National Agency, however the partners communicated each other, and they will continue to communicate, in English.In this respect we want to specify that a translated copy of the project has been send to the Spanish partner.
