Het Erasmus+ project Astel heeft als hoofddoel om leraren in innovatieve, gedigitaliseerde onderwijsmethodes van het onderwijs op te leiden en begeleiden. De deelnemende partnerscholen stimuleren leerkrachten om workshops en externe trainingen te volgen volgens het principe van levenslang leren. Hetzelfde geldt voor taalleraren die getraind worden in het gebruik van multimedia in de klas en zorgen voor verspreiding van kennis in de teams. 

In dit project wordt ingezet op het combineren van verschillende aspecten van curriculumontwikkeling, digitale vaardigheden en ondersteuning van de leerling/student.

Docenten dienen beter voorbereid te worden op het digitale tijdperk om leerlingen op maat te kunnen bedienen met inzet van programma’s gebaseerd op digitaal leren, van John Hattie’s leren zichtbaar maken, van peer learning met een focus op gepersonaliseerd leren.

Vijf Europese partners delen good practices en onderzoeken samen de voor- en nadelen van deze nieuwe vorm van leren.

Partners: scholen en instellingen in Finland (hoofdaanvrager), Estland, Portugal en België.

The Emmaus secondary school is a higher secondary school situated in Aalter, Flanders, the Northern part of our country Belgium.

Although Aalter is still a rural village, it has recently become more and more industrial as new industries settled in our region, due to the fact that our village is situated at a crossroad of some arterial highways.

Our school has a general, technical and vocational department. Science, economics , modern languages and classical culture are taught in our general department where we prepare most of our pupils for University.

The technical specialties taught in our school are mechanics, electromechanics, electricity and trade. Car mechanics and tools mechanics are the two vocational specialties we teach at Emmaus. Although the majority of our pupils are in our general department, we pay a lot of attention to our technical and vocational pupils.

Our technical and vocational departments maintain strong ties with the local industry in the field of training and work placement.
