Work Across School Subjects: Integrative Teaching and Project-Based Learning
Erasmus+ course summary
Students often perceive the subjects they are taught in school as disconnected theoretical concepts, lacking practical relevance to the real world. However, paradoxically, these very same students are highly interested in the latest scientific discoveries, particularly those related to the most pressing global issues. To bridge this gap, schools and teachers must prioritize interdisciplinary lessons, encourage collaboration among teachers, and devote more time to integrative teaching and project-based learning. The course presented here presents an entrepreneurial, digital, and international approach to integrative teaching, providing a comprehensive methodology and educational resources for successful implementation.
"If a child can’t learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn." – Ignazio Estrada
