We believe it is essential to capture the imagination and curiosity of students from the start of their education: to introduce even first and second graders to real life problems and to complex concepts with projects designed to engage their inventiveness and creativity, while at the same time building a solid foundation in critical 21st-century skills.
An open school is a more engaging environment for learning and makes a vital contribution to the community: student projects meet real needs in the community outside school and draw upon local expertise and experience. This is really important, as students have the opportunity not only to transfer their new knowledge but also to express it in a different semiotic system by creating their own projects and proposing their own solutions
Furthermore, students develop positive attitudes, and especially trust in the norms, values and rules as well as practices. Involvement in innovative activities is worthwhile since it can lead to a deeper understanding of each subject area. It also helps young people to think creatively and critically. The emotional dimension of learning is also really important, as students increase their self-confidence
The Open Schools for Open Societies project (OSOS) provide innovative ways to explore the world: not simply to automate processes but to inspire, to engage, and to connect. It will also support the development of innovative and creative projects and other educational activities.
