Video-learning for education – Erasmus + Project
„Video-learning for education” project was implemented between 01.11.2017 and 31.10.2019 by a partnership based on four organization: „Marin Preda” High-School, Bucharest, Romania (Coordinator); „Association EXE – Expertise for a knowledge based society”, Bucharest, Romania (Partner 1); Sunderland College, Sunderland, United Kingdom (Partner 2); European Animation Center, Athens, Greece (Partner 3) and it was funded by Erasmus + Project of European Union, Action Key 2 – Cooperation for Innovation and the Exchange of Good Practices.
The Pisa test results (from 2015) for what concern Math and Science indicated results below the EU average for Romania and results just around the EU average for the other two countries involved in the project and a failure to make significant progress in the last measured years. The interpretation of PISA results indicates a ow level of students competencies in applying their knowledge in real life situations. On the other hand, these test shown a lack of students motivation for studying and their disappointment about school and education. Analyzing the situation in the schools involved in the project, despite the natural differences, we realized that we, as partners, have a common problem: low motivation and low results in math discipline.
In order to address the issues that we have identified during the need-analysis, our project is proposing the following objectives:
- Training of 8 teachers/trainers in order to use new teaching methods, design, develop and evaluate video-learning units;
- Realisation of 1 Open Online Video Learning Course (OOVLC) targeting mathematics learning outcomes for students aged between 13 – 18 years old;
- Involving at least 130 students from target group (RO&UK) in piloting innovative mathematics classes;
- Improve the average results in math classes with at least 10% for the students involved in piloted classes;
- Increasing with 20% the satisfaction about mathematics discipline for the students involved in piloted classes.
Students from the target group of the project were directly involved in the piloting phase of the online mathematics course from the e-learning platform. At the end of the project there were 684 persons enrolled to the online course.
The online mathematics course can be access here:
The video-tutorials can be access also from the YouTube Channel:
