SUMMARY

Students from different centres collaborate to carry out a shared project, using ICTs and improving technical and transversal skills. High-performance skills.

DESCRIPTION

2014-2015, two teachers, one from the La Salle Berrozpe centre (Josema Fernandez) and another from the Don Bosco centre (David Muñoz), decided to conduct a shared electronic project, with students from both centres participating. The motivation is a desire to reinforce the students’ transversal skills, from teamwork, planning and people management skills, to ICT and cycle-specific skills. The experience was highly positive, since students did great work, and were even awarded at a national contest. However, in rating the experience, we realised that there is an IT part of the project’s development that we needed to cover. Zubiri Manteo (Sonia Ortiz de Arri) is the centre participating this year to provide support for the IT part we have in electronic projects. The experience was a success, since we have once again won the Don Bosco National Award with a joint project.

ENTREPRENEURIAL SELF-EVALUATION

Different centres with different working methods COLLABORATE so that students obtain the greatest number of skills necessary to make Basque VT a point of reference. Moreover, the teachers learn and share experiences, improving them. This is an entrepreneurial practise, since we were pioneers with this work method.

USEFULNESS/EFFECTIVENESS SELF-EVALUATION

This can easily be transferred to other centres with different participating cycles, making for a global project. It trains students for the business world, since it makes them work with people from other cycles with different knowledge, improving their skills, since they will need to work with people at other locations. The participant students are the best results.

SELF-EVALUATION OF RESULTS IN STUDENTS

The aim of this practise is to prepare students for the work method demanded by companies today. This is the starting point we wanted to use to conduct collaborative projects with different areas of knowledge. While the only tangible result are the awards won, the best result is when participant students are hired.
