A transnational project in Romania is encouraging interactive ICT-based teaching in schools
In Romania, the Educating for an Open Society Foundation (EOS) is taking steps to improve the teaching of IT skills in the country’s schools – with help from abroad. Working with the British-based Advisory Matters organisation, EOS and the Ministry of Education have launched a project to help teachers add IT skills to their professional portfolio. In three counties - Arad, Hunedoara, and Caraş-Severin – 24 teachers in urban and rural schools will receive training as ICT coordinators to boost the take-up of interactive technologies in the classroom. The project is aiming for long-term results – by boosting teachers’ careers and pupils’ ICT awareness – and will include a continuing development programme.
