High Tech High Content English is a project that brings guided reading activities and online tools for self-directed learning, leadership and cross- cultural collaboration and a common context to drive changes at the educational partner schools and public libraries from Moldova and Greece;
EL teachers provide an alternative to the hierarchical decision-making process in teaching and promote collaborative strategies that incorporate student voices.
HTHCE aims to contribute to increase use of student driven learning, online tools and social media in the classroom along with the guided reading activities in English focusing on classic tales, Greek mythology, and online kids‘ magazines and blogs.
The project uses an educational platform to share teaching resources among teachers, encourage the learners to add their own content in an adaptive learning environment, improve learners’ and optionally parents’ feedback via online boards and focus group discussions.
Pupils and teachers from Moldova and Greece develop digital literacy and participate in guided reading activities and contests in a real and online classroom setting.
EL teachers and pupils will participate in an exchange visit at the partner school from Greece.
Using online tools and social media in the classroom will increase and potentially impact partner schools’ ability to engage students and motivate them to obtain better school results and will develop their motivation to learn, use self-directed learning and share more responsibility for their learning and their future personal and professional development path.
