Already in the educational context, new teaching methods are emerging, reflecting the new needs of our time and redefining the role of education and its association with the holistic approach to the issues leading to knowledge acquisition, broadening the frontiers of research and promoting the experiential, cooperative and active learning.

Teachers horizon expanded about different ways to teach and different type of educational systems. The application of new teaching methods can help children to build a harmonious relationship between the present and the past, understand the historical and social processes and form a cultural consciousness that will allow them to participate, create variations or new cultural forms.

Teachers enhanced the quality of their knowledge about cooperative methods  and will be able to use the best practice for the benefit and progress of all children and gain new knowledge on registered topics and practical experience and skills.

The exchanging of these innovative methods represent an important initiative among our partnership because wes created a more modern, dynamic,committed and professional environment inside every school ready to integrate good practices and new methods into daily activities.

After every meeting ,teachers implemented their new knowledge and skills practically on children and new knowledge and experience integrated to every partners school in everyday learning activities hereafter.
