I² Identity and Innovation

image: graphic elaboration

A new project co-financed by the European Union under the Erasmus+ programme, to support knowledge exchange, collaboration and sharing of good practices, especially for secondary education in schools.

The scope of the project is developing a participative trajectory between different actors in the sector of school education and cultural heritage. The idea is to create an integrated vision and creative solutions for a future-oriented innovation in European education, enforcing at the same time its roots and making visible its identity.

At the very basis of the project’s concept, there are two core challenges: enhancing the historic value of educational heritage and creating innovative surroundings and practices for schools.

In this project educational experts will develop new skills and ways of teaching and learning, also in the light of adapting their learning environment to a more modern and more digital teaching practice; while heritage experts will help make the rich variety of school heritage more visible and used in schools.

Additionally, the project will also explore ways to making school buildings and surrounding landscapes more sustainable, and to adapting them for ameliorating the wellbeing and the quality of school life for students, teachers and all the people who live work and operate in the school buildings.

A programme of round tables and teaching/learning activities engaging students will enable development of best practices, exchange of knowledge and ideas, capacity building in digital skills for teachers.
