ERASMUS + K209 project:
The European Commission has approved an Erasmus + project for the next three school years. It is a Strategic Association KA219 with the Metis videregående school in Bergen in Norway and with the Wildermuth Gymnasium in Tübingen in Germany. This initiative will result in an exchange of good practicesamong the education professionals of the three European schools, as well as in activities that will involve the students of the three schools and who will be able to work within the framework of this project called 'Mobile learning and assessment methods': learning based on the use of ICTs, information and communication technologies, and evaluation methods.
Our center has been advancing in methodological innovation, and part of that evolution is based on ICTs, cooperative work, multiple intelligences, in which the student is the manager of their own learning. It is, therefore, that we have also been developing activities and methods for assessing the progress of students through hetero-evaluation, co-assessment and self-assessment rubrics.
We belong since its inception in 2011 to the Network of Plurilingual Centers of the Valencian Community. Therefore, we give special importance to languages, teaching non-linguistic subjects in Valencian and English. We give Secondary students the opportunity to participate in exchanges with Santa Monica School in Manchester (United Kingdom) and Wildermuth Gymnasium in Tübingen (Germany).
Santa María-Marianistas School is recognized as Cambridge English School. We have an English program that integrates materials and certifications recognized worldwide, thanks to the partnership established with Cambridge University Press and Cambridge Language Assesment, two departments of the prestigious University of Cambridge. Throughout the schooling, students will be able to take the Cambridge Exams(Starters - Movers -Flyers - Ket -Pet - FCE) and obtain a certification that will open many doors in their academic and professional future
Incorporating new technologiesat all levels of teaching, our teachers use the methodologies that best help students in their learning process and in the development of the necessary skills to function in the future (problem-based learning and projects, individual learning and cooperative).
From Infant Education we implanted a method based on the multiple intelligences of Howard Gardner, and within the integral education we work so that students develop the spiritual intelligence, that will help them to have a healthy self-esteem, emotional balance and to orient their life with sense .
