Project summary:

Elementary school and high school students are becoming disinterested, which the situation being worsened by the Covid-19 epidemic. Students are not motivated to learn for life. They rather focus on collecting points for enrolling in the desired high school/college. Although the education level is growing among Slovenians, it is decreasing compared to other EU Member States. Slovenians are below the OECD average in terms of textual and mathematical skills and in solving tasks in digital environments. Rapidly advancing technologies, rapidly changing society and the labour market call for completely different skills and competencies today compared to those required ten years ago, Thus, students need to learn for life and develop competencies for the 21st century. Through the development of new teaching methods and tools, the project equips young people during the process of formal education with skills and knowledge for the 21st century, which are necessary for independent life and work, and empowers and motivates teachers to use innovative teaching methods.
