Intellectual Output 1
A Curriculum for Integrating Web 2.0 Tools into Hybrid Education
The leader of this output is Gulbenes novada vidusskola. The curriculum will be developed after a thorough State of Art Analysis. All partners will conduct a State of Art Research in their country and Europe. After combining the results, a common report will be delivered. This report will be the scientific basis for curriculum and other project outputs.
We will use the participatory approach in this output. We will discuss, revise and decide the strategy together with the stakeholders. We will prepare a database of the relevant stakeholders and provide them with basic information on the project. After developing a draft curriculum we will discuss it with the stakeholders in workshops and meetings and finalize according to their feedback.
The main target group of this output is primary and secondary teachers. The curriculum, we will design, will include the list of learning subjects which they need to learn Web 2.0 tools.
The curriculum will also involve the topics to be processed, how much time these topics will be studied, expected outcomes, the most appropriate method and approach for primary and secondary students.
