Overview

The MuStLearnIT project targets primary schools in different European countries operating under special conditions such as multigrade and remote schools, where a few teachers (or even a single teacher) are responsible for teaching a small number of pupils of different ages and grades a variety of lessons and where often there are no  “subject specific expert” teachers for a number of lessons, as opposed to larger “standard” primary schools where several teachers of various specialisations cater for classes, each of which consists of pupils of the same age and abilities.

The project’s major objective is the design, development and application of an integrated distance learning model for learning, in the aid of multigrade primary schools by sharing resources such as teaching staff (local and remote) and by taking the utmost advantage of the existing technical infrastructure. Thus, remote multigrade schools will be affiliated with regular, “central” supporting schools, preferably in the same region, whose teachers will be willing and able to “tele-include” some pupils of the remote multigrade school in their regular classes. The model is supported by ICT and is applied in synchronous and asynchronous modes using videoconferencing and other Compiter Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) tools and specially designed educational activities based on appropriate educational software.  Accompanying reference material on the various aspects of its design and application in several European countries will remain as the further legacy of the project. 

MuStLearnIT brings together a wide range of expertise from educational institutions, educational technology experts, educational administrators and lastly but most importantly schools that require further support in order to offer better educational conditions to their pupils.
