Abilities such as creativity, critical thinking, problem solving and artistic expression are key competences which should be developed to face the current complexities and changes in today’s society. When teaching creativity we can offer tools for innovation and change. With this, we aim to educate people full of originality, future vision, entrepreneurship and with the ability to risk taking, overcoming the obstacles and problems they have to face in their daily lives.
The development and testing of a collection of attractive learning methods included in the fourth and final intellectual product of the 4 Creativities project (2019-1-BG01-KA201-062354): Artistic Creativity, began in May 2021.
By fostering artistic creativity, we will enhance our students' artistic abilities and their ability to express their desires, emotions, and fears. As artistic creativity increases, children will create their own "products".
With the new 2020/2021 academic year, work has also begun on the creation of the third intellectual product of Project 4 Creativities (2019-1-BG01-KA201-062354): Scientific Creativity.
Within this category are a variety of activities designed to improve students' thinking capacity and their ability to move from basic to more complex concepts; to solve problems in a real-world situation; and to train their deductive capacity.
The complex and unpredictable international health situation did not allow the partners of 4 Creativities project to gather for the second face to face transnational meeting in Dublin, scheduled for 1 and 2 October 2020. Instead, they’ve met online via Zoom platform on 23rd September 2020, shortly after the start of the school year 2020/2021 in all partner countries.
Before taking a well-deserved summer vacation, the partners in project 4 Creativities (2019-1-BG01-KA201-062354) completed the first version of the second intellectual product of the project: Mathematical creativity.
The Mathematical Creativity module includes a variety of activities aimed at developing and improving students' motivation, logical thinking and mathematical skills through innovative approaches.
After weeks of tireless work, the partners in 4 Creativities project (2019-1-BG01-KA201-062354) have completed their work on creating a pilot version of the first intellectual product. The module "Linguistic Creativity" includes a variety of activities aimed at developing and improving students' language skills through innovative approaches.
The first partner meeting under 4 Creativities project was organized in Sofia, Bulgaria on 11th-12th November 2019 and was hosted by the project coordinator 6th Secondary School "Graf Ignatiev". Representatives of all partner institutions attended the event. The project partnership consists of two organisations per country - Ireland, Romania, Spain and Bulgaria. One partner is a school and the other is an NGO.
Basic skills of different degrees of complexity are becoming increasingly important to enable full participation in all aspects of modern life. Deficits of basic skills (literacy, math&science, etc.) result in dropping out from school of young people and in consequence, their bad situation at the labour market, poverty and social exclusion.
