4 st Meeting – Romania

The activities in the LTT in Romania aim to increase the quality of education by integrating information and communication technology and innovative pedagogical methods in teaching subjects in the field of science. Within the activity, new open educational resources will be created, thus increasing pupils’ interest in studying these subjects and implicitly improving school outcomes.

Through workshops organized by computer and English teachers, in collaboration with engineers, physics and math teachers, teachers in the target group participating in LTT will have the opportunity to create collaborative lessons and questionnaires using e-learning platforms . Also, there will be lessons with the theme: Applications of physics in mechanics and electronics, to which both teachers and students of the target group will participate. These lessons will use e-learning platforms and open educational resources created in other LTT activities developed in partner schools.
