LEARNING SCIENCE THROUGH ACTIVE LEARNING
The main idea of the project is that starting from active learning concepts to involve pupils, teachers and schools in developing a new approach in teaching and learning science.
Each teacher involved was welcome to bring in the project personal experiences and personal suggestion in building new lessons; each pupil involved in the project was stimulated to use his/her energy and creativity in developing interesting activities as logo competition, project poster competition, science day. By this project, teachers and pupils shared experience over active learning methods in science education such as informal activities etc. in science education. We developed several active based science activities and lesson plans which can be applied in every class condition. By project meetings we adjusted the calendar or the distribution of tasks, in order to rise the quality of the project. In all activities we were in good cooperation to improve the project implementation.Our students were improved(14-18 years old) knowledge, understanding and skills by fully integrating the project into each schools curriculum and by the extensive use of information technology to share both process and outcomes.
During the project everybody contributed in execution of different products.
