 Teaching is based on themes here - we are erasing boundaries between subjects, we don't have traditional time periods for lessons and cooperative learning and self assessment are very important in our every day life. Common decisions, cooperation, trust , respect and common sense are the basic values of or school. How to achieve them in such a different society? We can discuss, share and try to do it together. 

.Our school works a lot in theme based education area, and the last thing we are doing - implementing robotics as part of curriculum in primary school. Now there is just beginning, but Lithuanian "academy of robotics" is making special lessons, based on primary school text books and we will have possibility to try them.  It would be big pleasure for us to invite international partners to try, how it works and of course, give you a pissibillity to see how children are doing it  in our school.. Internet platform and teachers' interactive books based on childrens' textbooks is interesting example of using ICT too .

 We can share activities about tolerance, stereotypes and diversity and experience in cooperative learning .

At this moment we are initiating project about theme based learning in erasmus+ program and project "money has to serve, not to rule" in nordplus programme. We are still working, so any suggestions and partners are welcome to join us! We would be happy to take part in Your project too...
