A new Scientix project supports schools in Europe in order to implement an Open Schooling approach in their learning environment, and to address societal challenges and priorities set by the European Commission in the field of science.
The main aim of this project is to promote science, research and innovation as an important element in young peoples’ lives, and to inspire them to pursue related careers and become more responsible citizens.
Entitled Open Schools for Open Societies, this project plans to achieve this by laying out Open Schooling values and principles for action around curriculum pedagogy and assessment. It also offers schools guidance and advice and suggestions for a range of possible implementation models.
Through Open Schooling, students contribute directly to policy debates on issues of real relevance to their community, for example energy efficiency, light pollution, tourism and health.
