Pablo Espeso and Mariluz Guenaga, researchers at Deusto LearningLab, participated in the second project meeting of the OSOS project, Open Schools for Open Societies. The project aims transforming schools into an open school and a science centre, where students make real science and have an important role in the community.
OSOS is a H2020 project led by 18 international partners, which will facilitate the innovation of schools by transforming them into sites of science learning, for which students, teachers, school heads and the local community share responsibility and authority, and develop responsible citizenship.
An Open School is a top engaging environment for learning, where students develop projects that meet real life needs and present a vital contribution to their communities. It fosters collaboration and provides students with the opportunity of finding a real meaning to what they learn, while better understanding and interrogating their place in the world.
During this meeting, partners have put together the work done so far, related to the OSOS model, the support mechanisms for schools, the selection of good practices to become accelerators of innovation, the impact assessment and dissemination. The following months are a great challenge for this enthusiastic team!
During 21-22 September 2017 Deusto LearningLab led the third partners meeting of the Erasmus+ project “Open Discovery of STEM Laboratories (ODL)”. The transnational meeting took place at the premises of HITSA (Tallinn, Estonia), which initiates and guides innovation and development in the area of educational technology and introduces best practices in Estonia. The agenda of the meeting was focused deeply on the Intellectual Outputs related to ODL MOOC space, developing and implementing the micro-MOOCs, organizing multinational events in each country as well as planning the final project conference. More information about the project could be found on the website http://opendiscoverylabs.eu/, the catalogue of the available micro-MOOCs for the STEM school teachers are presented on the portal http://moocspace.odl.deusto.es/.
