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!
