Description of the Model


Figure 1: MuSTLearnIT Model Unit

The model we propose, in terms of its design and implementation, includes the following activities (Figure 1):

  1. Pupils will be “assimilated” by video conferencing in the classroom of a “central” school and will follow the special subject lesson, as this is normally taught by the special “expert” teacher in this school (synchronous mode of distance learning).
  2. Pupils will work on their own using appropriate educational material and software on the school’s computers, while at the same time they will be supported by a remote “study support” teacher (synchronous and asynchronous mode of distance learning)
  3. 2-3 times within the school year they will be visited by a specialized “expert” teacher and will enjoy a regular class, where they can directly interact by discussing in person with the teacher.
  4. In some cases (e.g. when the special subject lesson is Foreign Language Learning, and/or the language coincides among the schools in more than one country), ODL sessions between the multigrade schools in the different countries can also be held within the school year.

During 1, and 4 the local primary school teacher is present in the classroom and she/he will be able to assist the pupils in using the computer and the relevant educational software.

Thus the model combines in a comprehensive way the presence of the teacher in the classroom and in the remote “central” school, at the same time involving the active participation of the pupils in using the computer and the appropriate educational software as learning tools.
