The IDEAS project is a project which aims at combining the creative aspect of learning through hand on, practical activities. During the project students will work together in teams to solve real problems together not just through memory but rather through the application of the acquired knowledge students will find ways to be proud of their work.
The IDEAS project is an immense opportunity for schools to focus on education in a way that the learning approach has to be integrative of both theory and practice and where students are able to create value out of these experiences.
Furthermore, Design Thinking as a mindset and work attitude for creative problem solving has become crucial for many activities in education. These methodologies encourage students to think broadly about problems, develop a deep understanding and recognize the value in the contributions of others. This project focuses on the mindset of “how to think” not “what to think”.
The partners in this project are from Sweden, Latvia, Italy, Turkey and Malta
