Evaluations Spain

Teachers’ evaluation:

1st  Reflection of work plan:

We think that there was a high coherence between the activities in the project and the aims that we wanted to achieve. The coordinator country had carefully planned the activities so that the timeline was very realistic. Also, the students liked working on these activities.

2nd Involvement of teachers in the project:

Most of the teachers who have worked this course in the project have been involved from the very beginning and they have worked cooperatively. They showed respect to each other’s differences and they shared their experiences in order to accomplish their common goals. As for the  teachers involved, our organizational capacity and creativity with a collective and European aspiration has strongly  increased. This project has become a really important tool for staff development and motivation.

3rd Definition of assessment tools:

The evaluation has been continuous. We have defined the followings assessment tools:

  • Control list
  • Daily class
  • Rubrics
  • Oral and written questionaires
  • Tests and assignments
  • Oral Evaluation
  • Portfolios
  • Observation
  • Discussion

 

4th  Improve skills:

We worked all competences, with emphasis on linguistic communication, digital collaboration, cultural  and social skills. We have also improved the methodology of our schools implementing the project and intergrating it in the curriculum. Finally, we have learned from each other by exchanging ideas and practices we use at our schools. Project’s activities were for our students a good opportunity to raise the awareness that they are European Citizens and  were able to promote tolerance and an appreciation of different beliefs, cultures and backgrounds. Always they were collaborative and entusiastic to know and to keep in touch with european friends in order to share ideas and topics.

 

5th Achievements/ problems found:

The objectives in this course has been achieved but we have found some obstacles:

  1. a) Flash conference meeting:

– We wanted our students to have several flash meeting conferences simultaneously. However,  we had technical problems beyond our control  and it turned out impossible. Thus, we decided to organise Skype conferences  between two countries each time.

 

  1. b) Videos with recipes:

– Some countries had had problems in terms of cooperation from the parents of their students. When we were carrying out  the activity with the recipes, some countries did not provide all the necessary videos, which also meant delays in the final product.

6th  Improvement proposals:

– Our colleagues from Portugal found a way for  all students to have flash meeting conferences at the same time using appear.com. We are going to use it next course in September and try to have multiple conferences next year.

-The teachers ,whose  students’ parents don’t seem to be willing to cooparate effectively, should consider informing the parents in detail about the project or organise a presentation of it at their school so that these parents develop a more positive attitude towards the  project and especially the activities in which  their participation or help will be required.
