This guide is the proposal of Teacher's team from IES Val Miñor (Galicia, Spain), VilaKavickio r. Sudavos pagrindine mokykla (Lithuania) and Istituto Compresivo Novara di Sicilia (Sicily, Italy), who have developed, during 2017-2018 a Erasmus + project under the title “Cooperative teaching and learning to change behaviors: ecological footprint at school”.
We propose here a compilation of the more interesting teaching and learning activities that we have selected in order to disseminate the great experience shared during the project among students and teachers working together.



Different educative methodologies will be used:

  1. Problem Based Learning Methodology. In this methodology students work in small groups to solve a particular problem. It comprises a series of stages:
    1. Approach the problem situation.
    2. Active Assumption of the learning process for students: brainstorming.
    3. Identification of training needs and information: lists of what is not known and lists of what is needed.
    4. Defining the problem.
    5. Planning of empirical work to be done.
    6. Implementation of research using IT and resources provided by the teacher.
    7. Analysis and presentation of results.

  2. The Active Methodology based in Cooperative Teaching and Learning. This methodology allows puting together the work of different groups and driving the processes to get common outcomes:
    1. systematizing the various previous experiences of the different working groups
    2. defending and discussing the different material produced by each working group
    3. selecting the material of interest and develop common ending products
    4. materializing the communication strategy and dissemination of results: common reports, brochures, posters, videos..

An essential point of this methodology is to promote students' work in cooperative teams and encourage them to assume an active role in the learning processes. In this way, students have to research, to discover, to find out..and present their findings, sharing the ideas and the results they got , teaching each other and learning from one another.
