Constant renewal is the key

The issue of innovation has been receiving special attention globally in the past few decades, and for twenty years it has also taken a prestigious position in education. Besides academic knowledge, this more and more rapidly changing environment also requires adequate technical knowledge, and therefore many Hungarian institutions are committed to supporting the professional renewal of their teaching staff. We discussed this innovative approach with Tibor Plánk, head of Hunfalvy János Bilingual Secondary Vocational School of Economy and Trade.

Learn to Ride a Bike at School Safe4Cycle – Bike Academy the European Way

Probably, many will have learnt from the media about the good news that in the autumn of 2018, 200,000 publications supporting vehicular cycling will be distributed among 4 and 5-graders in Hungary. But fewer might be aware that this publication was based on a Bike Academy workbook and instructor's manual, developed in an Erasmus+ public education project which was implemented by a partnership of four countries and coordinated by Vuelta Sports Association. We talked about the Safe4Cycle project with project coordinator Dóra Szűcs.

About Organic Farming for Everyone

The curriculum developed as part of the ECO-Motive project focused on the basics of ecological farming. It primarily sought to improve the employment rates of disadvantaged and poorly skilled people. The training material can be effectively used in the fields of vocational training and adult education, but it may also be interesting and useful for local governments and civil organisations.

Playful Learning with Mobile Devices

The digital educational material developed as part of the project coordinated by InterRegio Forum Association can be used both to help disadvantaged students catch up and for the talent management of gifted students.

Preparing for a More Independent Life

It's an important goal, both in the EU and Hungary, to provide care for people with disabilities in smaller homes, offering community-based accommodation, instead of large institutions. The project of KézenFogva Foundation sought to support the preparation for that by designing training courses and educational materials to make the transition as smooth as possible.

Role model Katalin Erzsébet Tóth: "The fact that at the age of 55 I can feel enthusiasm over some innovation is mostly due to these projects"

You haven been in the profession for over thirty years. Besides teaching English, you regularly attend teacher training programmes. You write grant applications, think about your own projects, hold training sessions, write a blog, and most of the time you're busy implementing one of your grant-winning projects. How does a teacher benefit from all this? We asked Katalin Erzsébet Tóth, the 'happy teacher' of Kőrösi Csoma Sándor Primary School and Secondary Grammar School of the 18th District about this and the Erasmus+ projects.

Role model Barnabás Gulyás: "We want to give something back from what these programmes gave us."

You looked for opportunities to learn something 'extra' already as teenager. You studied social work, then mastered in Community and Civil Studies, and currently you a PhD student at the University of Pécs, but you never gave up further training, you own initiatives and volunteering, either. Since 2009, you've been the Chairman of the Federation of Children's and Youth Municipal Councils. You are driven by working for youth and communities, as well as by a need to renew. What has the Erasmus+ programme add to all that? We talked to Barnabás Gulyás.

Seeking to Bring Students Closer to Life - Vocational Guidance

Once we used to find our career paths more easily. Smart students went to secondary grammar school, whereas poorer learners chose secondary vocational school or vocational school. That was because both parents and teachers knew which vocations had a future and offered a chance to make a living. Today, the ever faster modernisation makes career planning considerably harder - so the need for guidance is even greater. That was one of the topics we discussed with Erika Kerekesné Lévai, Directress of the Tisztavasvár Member Institution of Magiszter Foundation Kindergarten, Primary School, Secondary Grammar School, Secondary Vocational School and Vocational School, Project Coordinator of an Erasmus+ project in career orientation.

Work-based Learing for Adults

Experience from Real Life - Close Cooperation Required between Businesses and Education

In order to maintain competitiveness, both schools and businesses need close cooperation to integrate experiences in joint development projects. It is also among the areas which the Erasmus+ programme offers support to, and it is what the four organisations which now share their experiences relied on. Traineeship with Portuguese enterprises, teaching entrepreneurial lifestyle at university, training retailer mentors, innovation management. Four projects to link education with the world of labour.

LAWrider – Human Rights as Interpreted by Youths

The knowledge of human rights is not an integral part of secondary school curriculum; that is what the participants of the LAWrider Erasmus+ international youth initiative wanted to change. Groups of young people from Hungary, Romania and Croatia used filming techniques to address the issue of human rights and produced ten short movies and the related lesson plan. They can be used in a secondary school environment to talk about the issue in a playful, and still informative manner. We asked Dóra Csóti-Gyapjas and Gábor Balla coordinators about the quality award winning project.

During the training which they had developed, both beginner and experienced farmers had a lot to learn, from the basics through community building to production know-how. Implemented in cooperation with foreign partners, word of the training series spread as far as Asia. Coordinator Zsófia Perényi told us about the results.

Everybody Gets Their Turn in the Debate

What do you need to have a well-established opinion? How can you represent it? How can you achieve the ability not only to listen to, but also to understand the other party’s viewpoint and adapt it to your reasoning? The Waldorf School of Szeged and its three partners coordinated a two-year-long project together, and now they also have answers to the above questions. The Erasmus+ Quality Award winning project sought to improve students’ reading comprehension and verbal expression skills, but it also brought other benefits for the partner schools beyond the original goals. We talked to specialist coordinators Judit Gera and Ágnes Bató.

Children with Special Educational Needs Should Not Necessarily Take a Different Career Path

The Erasmus+ project coordinated by Hidden Treasures Down Association was closed with outcomes which even surprised the teachers. They held joint classes for healthy children and ones with disabilities and special educational needs in Hungary, Romania and Slovakia. They wanted to transmit the positive message of inclusive education to as many primary schools as possible to allow all those concerned to experience the opportunities of teaching based on inclusive education. They have been recognised with an Erasmus+ Quality Award for the development and practical testing of a methodological material which they developed with support from the EU. We talked to coordinator Károly Kisari.

Self-coaching for youth workers – in a group context

Is it possible! The Erasmus+ youth project called ’Changemaker’ has done it. The individual development process mainly focused on the prevention of burnout and maintaining motivation – according to the participants’ needs.

Foreign Teacher’s Courses for Integrated Education

More and more children with special educational needs, requiring special care, are involved in the teaching-educating process of public educational institutions. The composition of students within schools is varied, and one of the most important parts of the inclusive educational methods applied within an institution is effective cooperation, for which teachers should be prepared, too. Recognised with a quality award, the Erasmus+ project conducted by the Mezőszél Street Primary School of Pécs addressed that issue. We asked Project Coordinator Szilvia Jutasi and Professional Coordinator Nikolett Lombosi about the details.

It’s not only the curriculum of the course that makes it a perfect fit, but also its many other additional events.

Flipped Learning in VET

The development of technology has also brought about a change in students’ learning habits. Besides exploiting the new opportunities offered by technology in the classroom, a new methodological approach has also become necessary. Teachers’ role should be revised – we must accept that they are not the single source of knowledge that they used to be, but their role supporting the learning process is still indispensible.

Competing for the future - An insight into the international projects of the University of Pannonia and Budapest Business School

It is common knowledge that competition enhances performance and creativity. But how can you exert social impact through competition?

Last year, a number of projects which set the goal of exchanging good practices or developing innovative contents were implemented in international partnerships under the Erasmus+ programme. These are so-called strategic partnerships. We will rely on a winning project, coordinated by Hungarian and Spanish partners, to present how to use the method of competition innovatively, as well as the results that can be thus achieved.

Work-based learning and supporting apprenticeship

Hotel industry technician training, launched as a result of the project called Second Chance in Hospitality, is a good example for cooperation between the training institution and the employer.
