1 New technologies for education and the control of the quality of European water I. Presentation of the projectStrategies for EvaluationProgramme Socrates Minerva N° – CP – 3 – 2001 – 1 – BE – MINERVA - M
2 I. Presentation of the project This is the third year of this Socrates Minerva project.The main objective of is to introduce innovating ODL tools into the secondary schools and to develop a co-operative project with teachers and students from 16 to 18 years old dealing with water management. You can watch a “guided tour” through the website on which the project informations are provided in 5 different languages : English, German, Greek, French and Italian.
4 First STAGETheProject aims to promote exchanges and European cooperation between secondary schools by ODL (Open and distance learning) through a common project focusing water management.THE OBJECTIVE
5 Second STAGEDistance learning currently favours the use of New Information and Communication Technologies (NICT).This is the reason why theProject provides teachers and students with the opportunity to become knowledgeable about the technical and scientific aspects of ODL.THE OBJECTIVE
6 Third STAGEAs the project advances, teachers also participate in the development, experimentation and assessment of tools and innovative methodologies.They join their students in action-research, from the taking of samples in the field to laboratory analysis and processing of results.THE OBJECTIVE
7 Fourth STAGEThe Project also aims to promote virtual mobility of teachers and students, providing them with a specific project-based Web site run interactively.This communication and distance learning platform allows for true international cooperation and increases awareness of European identityTHE OBJECTIVE
8 Fifth STAGEAt the end of the project research results as well as effective tools and teaching practices will be gathered on a CD-ROM which will enable the project to expand into the different European countries.This CD-ROM could serve as a basis for the adoption of a common education curricilum throughout European countries.THE OBJECTIVE
10 First STAGE Training for teachers and students Technical skills Developing teacher’s and students' skills in using new technologies in order to enhance teaching at a distance.Scientific proficienciesLearning to carry out an analysis in a locality with students based on software for handling results: Aquakit.THE METHOD
11 Second STAGEThe choice of an environment in light of a interdisciplinar approachThe scientific appraisal of a locality will be carried out, depending on the case at hand, either by geographical, historical, literary, cultural or social-economic approaches, etc.THE METHOD
12 Third STAGE Research in the locality, the collection of DATA Collecting samples and analysis of the locality will be done using a unique handling case: matter selected by partners involved in the project.THE METHOD
13 Fourth STAGE The analysis and treatment of data The teachers are to adopt a mutual experimental procedure for treating samples in the laboratory. The treatment of data by data processing facilitates the interpretation of scientific results and permits the synthesis and the communication of all multidisciplinary or interdisciplinary findings.THE METHOD
14 Fifth STAGE Sharing and dissemination of findings The participants in the project have at their disposal for the publishing, and dissemination of the results and conclusions of their research tools such as:the Web site,a discussion forum,the working up of a CD -ROM.THE METHOD
15 II. Strategies for evaluation 1. Follow-up of the projectAt the Steering Committees :International partners’ meetingsNational meetings of teachersCommunication and exchanges using the new technologies through the forum, visio-conferences, electronic mails and online discussionsTransparency on the website : who spread continously the informations and the outcomes of the project
16 2. Production and exploitation of evaluation tools Creation of an online-evaluation-questionnaire in order to assess the CD-Rom as well as the Steering CommitteesElaboration of a dissemination questionnaireManagement of the questionnaire’s answers thanks to the creation of a sample file in order to collect and to analyze these answers.3. Evaluation of the project by external expertsAt different levels : pedagogical, scientific, new technologies and project managementBy different institutionsUniversityISSep : Institut Scientifique de Service publicOrganisations involved in environment protection
17 I. Evaluation de la dissémination Analyse et Présentation des Résultats grâce à l’utilisation du logiciel SphinxI. Evaluation de la dissémination
22 1. Correction du CD-ROM (aspects visuels, graphiques, contenu, …) Clarté, compréhension du projetLisibilité du texteFacilité de déplacementLes traductions sont-elles suffisantes
23 2. Vérifier les objectifs du projet en fonction du public cible. L'exploitation du CD-ROM encourage-t-elle :l’apprentissage individualiséL’utilisation des nouvelles technologies de l’information et de la communicationla citoyenneté européennel’échange européen Nous avons la réponse sous forme de tableau ou de graphique.
26 Transposition pour l’avenir Les utilisateurs peuvent déterminer quels outils proposés dans le CD-ROM ils comptent utiliser …Grâce à l’évaluation, nous pouvons découvrir le résultat suivant le niveau de compétence.
