Project name: T-BOX

Duration: 01.10.2017 – 30.09.2019
One of the biggest challenges in the educational system in Europe nowadays, is the early school leaving of students in V-VII grades. Coming out of primary school the level of demotivation across pupils in this educational stage has been steadily rising. The long term negative consequences from this trend are the risk of early school leaving, isolation and low educational achievements.
Most of the educational experts share the opinion that one of the key factors influencing the students’ motivation and engagement in the educational process is the effective pedagogical approach, which naturally turned teachers the main target group of the project.
Ten organisations (5 schools and 5 training providers) from five European countries (Bulgaria, Poland, Spain, Portugal, Denmark) gathered together with the purpose of creating an innovative educational method to support the teachers from different subjects during their everyday work with pupils in V-VII grades. The general goal of the innovative tool is to enhance the capacities of the teachers to stimulate active engagement and to maintain sustainable motivation for learning among pupils in V-VII grades. The abovementioned goal will be achieved through the creation of two products.
The T-BOX (or Teacher’s Box) will consist of multilingual set of cards containing descriptions of methods/activities for interactive work with pupils to be practiced in the classroom, which will raise pupils’ interest and motivation to learning. The T-BOX will provide a selection of 25 activities that can be used by any teacher in any subject, without need of specific training, huge time recourse and complex additional materials. The cards will be grouped in 5 categories: “Move it”; “Feel it (emotions)”; “Sense it (the 5 senses: hearing, taste, smell, touch, vision)”; “Think it”; “Express it”.
Based on the T-BOX set will be developed the T-BOX mobile application enabling additional functions like rating, sharing and links to additional resources.
