ABOUT THE PROJECT

ABOUT THE PROJECT

As part of the new cycle of scientific projects of the Croatian science foundation (Hrvatska zaklada za znanost HRZZ, in Croatian), a new project titled SCOLLAm has commenced. Its primary goal is the research of the use of tablet computers in Croatian primary schools. Starting from September 2014, researchers from the Faculty of electrical engineering and computing led by the principal investigator Prof. Ivica Boticki will collaborate with the Trnjanska primary school and work with the teachers on the innovative digital lessons design primarily aimed at tablet computers. Since the lessons will be deployed onto tablet computers, the project team uses the term „mobilizing the curriculum“ to describe such as approach. Examples of such usage include recognizing plants during field trips, learning parts of the world using the digital cartography and virtual and augmented reality etc.


COLLABORATION

Since Croatian students have less than average results on the international PISA tests, this project will be based on experiences gained in the ongoing collaboration with the National Institute of Education in Singapore. Since Singapore students are in the top of the PISA scale throughout last years, through this collaboration there will be a transfer of knowledge between Croatian and Singaporean teachers in the area of innovative technology use, teacher professional development and scaling of research outcomes onto multiple primary schools.
