  • Questo modello può essere utilizzato come file iniziale per la presentazione di materiale didattico per la formazione in gruppo. Sezioni Fare clic con il pulsante destro del mouse su una diapositiva per aggiungere sezioni. Le sezioni possono essere utili per organizzare le diapositive o agevolare la collaborazione tra più autori. Note Utilizzare la sezione Note per indicazioni sull'esecuzione della presentazione oppure per fornire informazioni aggiuntive per il pubblico. Mostrare queste note nella visualizzazione Presentazione durante la presentazione. Valutare con attenzione le dimensioni dei caratteri, importanti per l'accessibilità, la visibilità, la registrazione video e la produzione online. Colori coordinati Prestare particolare attenzione ai grafici, ai diagrammi e alle caselle di testo. Tenere presente che i partecipanti eseguiranno la stampa in bianco e nero o in gradazioni di grigio. Eseguire una stampa di prova per assicurarsi che i colori risultino comunque efficaci e chiari in una stampa in solo bianco e nero e in gradazioni di grigio. Grafica, tabelle e grafici Scegliere la semplicità: se possibile utilizzare stili e colori coerenti, che non rappresentino elementi di distrazione. Assegnare un'etichetta a tutti i grafici e a tutte le tabelle.

    3. 3. <ul><li>Gap of conformance? </li></ul><ul><li>Gap of innovation? </li></ul><ul><li>Gap of resources? </li></ul>
    4. 4. - + Less resources Angry teachers Governments in emergency Openness to consider change Appeal of bottom-up initiative Appeal of entrepreneurship = <ul><li>Favourable conditions for bottom up innovation </li></ul><ul><li>Negative context for follow up at system level </li></ul>
    5. 5.   Existing school systems are often underperforming. Every bad education service produces long term damages.   More investment is needed, but a better use of resources should also be searched.
    6. 6. <ul><li>Common critical change areas identified </li></ul><ul><li>(policy makers, networks, foundations, teachers and parents associations, NGOs) </li></ul><ul><li>BUT </li></ul><ul><li>fragmentation of innovative initiatives is still the rule and impact of innovation at system level is insufficient. </li></ul>
    7. 7. <ul><li>From fragmentation to system interaction </li></ul><ul><li>From personal collaboration to institutional partnership </li></ul><ul><li>From self-referentiality to multi-stakeholders governance </li></ul>

    10. 11. <ul><li>The Learning School Initiative (LSI) wants to complement and facilitate existing funding sources (e.g. the EU Lifelong Learning Programme, World Bank subsidies and loans, National Governments Programmes, major Foundations worldwide) to build on existing results and to convey strategic investments on a synergetic programme recognised worldwide </li></ul>
    11. 12. <ul><li>We call for a massive mobilisation to map existing projects, innovative schools, available support funds  Map of School Transformation. The map would help: </li></ul><ul><li>Schools to self-assess their orientation towards the necessary innovation and to find relevant partners worldwide and support agencies. </li></ul><ul><li>Funding Agencies to coordinate their action, to focus on change areas where funding support is insufficient, to identify relevant actors and avoid duplication of funding. </li></ul><ul><li>Educators and Researchers to collaborate in knowledge building on what works where at what conditions. </li></ul><ul><li>Existing networks to better cooperate and share resources and results to maximise their impact. </li></ul>
