Description of the initiative
The context
K.I.S.S. the I.C.T. is a project for developing Key competences In our Special Schools, through an Innovative and Creative Training. The development of Key Competences is our basic goal. We would like to create a partnership and a school consortium within the reference framework of Lisbon 2010. That's why educative systems and professional teacher development basically need to be adapted to new knowledge requests in the European society, concerning a permanent learning approach for life. During the project we will analyze our different and real situations in each school and countries.

The aims
Our idea is to create an action plan and implementation for the integration of the Basic Competences in each curriculo, especially focusing on competences in Foreign Languages, Mathematics, Science and Technology, Learning to Learn, Digital and Intercultural and Social awareness. Our activities will also be connected to the European Year of Creativity and Innovation, developing the triangle of knowledge, Education-Research-Innovation and the educational triangle of Equity-Effectiveness-and Inclusion. All the activities will have to involve directly teachers, families, students and all the operators connected to formal and informal education associations. The project will contribute to create a real European Dimension pass through this way, where multilinguism is not an obstacle but resource for everybody.

Dissemination Seminar in Florence

31 October 2015 The seminar has been held in ITIS “A. Meucci” one of the schools involved within Goerudio project activities. Its main aim was to promote the results of the project toward a broad sample of stakeholders even overcrossing the number of people directly involved in the production of project outcomes. This purpose has been totally achieved especially thanks to the participation of students and teachers coming from different schools or from other classes instead of those ones directly involved within the project activities.
