ZÁKLADNÍ POPIS PROJEKTU Social Education on the Move (SoMoveED)
THE AIM OF THE PROJECT is to develop, implement and disseminate innovation in the form of a MODEL of MOBILE SOCIAL EDUCATION (MmsED) in higher education. Its attribute is organizing the teaching process in motion, outside the university walls, with the participation of stakeholders from outside the academic community (citizens, representatives of institutions and organizations, activists, people at risk of marginalization).
This model combines three important features of the educational process: (1) MOBILITY; (2) PARTICIPATION; (3) INCLUSION. The listed features relate to both the content and form of the designed teaching tools and classes. Based on the tests we assume that the organization of didactic classes in motion, with the active participation of students and other people, promotes better preparation for social life, including the role of an active citizen.
We also assume that thanks to the introduction of the MODEL of MOBILE SOCIAL EDUCATION, the didactic offer, compared to the traditional model, will be more (1) CURRENT; (2) ADEQUATE FOR NEEDS; (3) ATTRACTIVE for class participants.
THE MODEL of MOBILE SOCIAL EDUCATION consists of three modules:
(1) RESEARCH WALKS; (2) STUDY VISITS; (3) EDUCATIONAL GAMES ON THE MOVE.
WHO IS INVOLVED IN THE PROJECT? Institutions and organisations from 9 countries (Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Turkey, United Kingdom) – 8 universities; – 2 NGO’s; – 1 enterprise
THE PROJECT INVOLVES THE FOLLOWING ACTIVITIES
1. Conducting research on mobile methods
2. Exchange of good practices in the field of mobile social education.
3. Conducting pilot classes evaluated by the participants.
4. Preparation of instructional videos (to make a common instructional movie).
5. Development of the student’s handbook
6. Developing a guide for academic teachers (teacher’s toolkit).
7. Developing the training course MOOC on the Education on the Move.
8. Conducting partner meetings and disseminating the results
THE PROJECT PLAN FORESEEN • 5 meetings • 6 Intellectual outputs • 11 dissemination moments
THESE ARE THE INTELLECTUAL OUTPUTS DELIVERED DURING THE PROJECT IMPLEMENTATION (O1-O6) I. Three books published
• STUDIES ON THE MOBILE MODEL OF SOCIAL EDUCATION (O1) – a collection of jointly created scientific texts (theoretical, methodological, empirical) on the subject of mobile, participatory and inclusive methods and their application in academic didactics. Studies will provide a common intellectual basis for project partners and other institutions and people using the developed model.
• STUDENT’S HANDBOOK (O3) containing descriptions of good practices in the application of innovative educational tools in the field of social and humanities education. The handbook shows how students can use these methods in future professional practice.
• TEACHER’S TOOLKIT (O4) – containing tips on how to use methods by teachers (walks, study visits, educational field games).
II. Other outputs
• INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEOS (O2) – containing tips on conducting classes using a) study visits; b) research walks; c) educational field games.
• A NEW PROGRAM CONTENT (O5) – innovative forms and tools of social and humanistic education.
• the MOOC on the Education on the Move (O6) – online course for those who want to know how to conduct activities based on the education on the move.
