The aim of the AMORES methodology is to encourage greater student engagement with literature through the interactive and collaborative use of ICT. The students will create digital artefacts and share these with their peers in countries around Europe. For example, Croatian students might create videos around Croatian literary works and then share and discuss these online, via videoconference, with students from the United Kingdom. During the pilot phase the new methodology will be tested in actual use by teachers and students who will have chance to influence the revision of the methodology through the student voice approach.
The pilot will be implemented in ten classes, numbering around 200 students in total. The schools involved in the project are: Primary School ABIS “School4Child”, Lodz, Poland; Skægkærskolen, Silkeborg, Denmark; Karlbergsskolan, Köping, Sweden; Primary School Horvati, Zagreb, Croatia and St. Mary’s Katholic Primary School, Staffordshire, United Kingdom. The fact that the new methodology will be tested in five different contexts makes the project results representative at a European level. Updates on pilot progress and results as well as guidelines on how teachers can apply the methodology in their own teaching will be available on our news section here.
