Background and Experience
Our school has STEM Laboratories, Project Workshop, physics, chemistry and biology laboratories. Every year, together with the project carried out by the Research and Development Department of EllinogermanikiAgogi (EA), the Eratosthenes Experiment is put together with all countries. In the school, eTwinning projects are being carried out in very different ways and some are going on. Currently, there are studies under the name of STEM Projects in the school. Arduino education is provided with the student groups determined within the scope of these studies, projects are being produced and teachers' approach to STEM education is explained. Our school is comprised of different social backgrounds owing to the fact that the government accepts students with high grades.We have a total 15 students with special needs.There is a special programme for these students but we want to be able to get knowledge and information about this issue;how does Europe deal with this problem? We also have students with special needs.As for the needs of disadvantaged pupils, they are provided through extracurricular courses at school. We regularly try to plan the needs of disadvantaged and to improve their performance with the teachers who attend their classes. Individual interviews are held at regular intervals with both students and parents. The family is visited in need. These students are followed due to their social and academic performance. Gifted students are encouraged to do projects in areas where they have talents. Besides all these circumstances our students are in need of affection,academic support,being led for the accurate future as a profession. Last but not the least the students differ from each other on the grounds of their socioeconomic level. To educate the students as individuals who will be able to adapt to the developments in the field of education in the world ,we need to follow teaching methods in order to meet specific needs of students . In addition to the methods known in the scope of management, education and training activities in our school, creative and innovative methods are needed.Therefore, we strongly aim to improve and enhance our school by international projects like this.
