Generation gap has reduced in four schools in Pest County

2024. 05. 10.

With the support of the Competitive Central Hungary Operational Programme, the development of digital competencies supporting learning and teaching was realized in four schools of the Educational District Centre of Szigetszentmiklós. Within the framework of the project, the further training of nearly fifty teachers took place, who, with the acquired knowledge and using the new digital tools, can hold exciting lessons.

In today’s ’internet-centric’ world, it is very important that teachers also receive up-to-date trainings in the field of digitization. The aim of the project called “Supporting digital development in schools open for development” was to start a fight against digital illiteracy in the four participating institutions of the Educational District Centre of Szigetszentmiklós. After all, there is a big gap between Generation Z (those born from the mid-1990s to the beginning of the 2010s) and the generation of teachers who educate them. Four institutions have undertaken to reduce this matter, Sándor Weöres Primary School in Tököli, Árpád Fejedelem Primary School in Ráckevei, Szent István Primary School in Szigethalmi and Ervin Baktay High School.

The introduction of tools and methods supporting the development of digital competences was carried out in three areas, supporting the development of mathematical competence, scientific knowledge and reading comprehension.

In the project, nearly fifty teachers participated in various methodological training courses related to, for example, the use of digital whiteboards, the practical application of digital and interactive tools, software and teaching materials, or modern methods and techniques to improve reading, reading comprehension and text composition skills. By developing teachers’ digital competences, the generation gap has been reduced of which benefits can be experienced by hundreds of students every day.

The programme has been successful in developing the digital competences of students, including children with special educational needs and children with integration, learning and behavioural difficulties.

The program was implemented with European Union funding under the VEKOP-7.3.3-17-2017-00005 project.
