WHAT IS "OPEN SCHOOLING"

“Open schooling” is where schools, in cooperation with other stakeholders, become an agent of community well-being; families are encouraged to become real partners in school life and activities; professionals from enterprise, civil and wider society are actively involved in bringing real-life projects into the classroom.
COMMISSION 2015, SCIENCE EDUCATION FOR RESPONSIBLE CITIZENSHIP

WHY

The Commission calls for the development of new science learning didactic, based on an Open Schooling approach, in which science learning processes are strongly linked to the students’ participation in real-life science challenges in society and in real research and in innovation circles. This is why the project is called Open Science Schooling, combing the need for re-thinking science learning with open schooling didactic.

FOR WHO

Science disengagement takes place in secondary school and typically when the students are from 12 to 15 years old, indicating that science resistance is strongly linked to the development of the students’ identify and personality. This is why Open Science Schooling targets secondary schools, providing students with the opportunity and resources to develop a different image of what science is!
