The project partnership aims to create teaching materials in the 3 partnership languages (Spanish, Italian and English) designed to allow children between the ages of 4 and 11 to acquire skills on the following subjects:
a) Mathematical competences
b) Linguistic communication
c) Digital skills.
The approach is game-based and will use problem-solving resources that are related to board games: in particular, “chess” for the mathematical subjects and “word wrangler” for the linguistic discipline. Inspired by these two games, materials will be designed and adapted according to teachers’ needs to improve children’s digital skills to be used with the children in class.
The resources will subsequently be adapted to the curriculum for the project target primary education level. In particular: Mathematics: Numbers and arithmetical operations; Spatial orientation. Linguistic: Listening comprehension, Global meaning, Main and secondary ideas; Knowledge of the language: grammar and vocabulary.
The materials will be developed in digital format to be used by teachers in the classroom as resources, based on their specific needs in their local context. These materials will be accompanied by an educational guide for Teachers.
Finally, the materials will be tested in all participating countries to verify the quality of the teaching materials and to suggest possible elements of improvement. The main promotional objective is to facilitate the adoption of the resources and methodology in other schools.
