My Home: School – Novigado Pilot in Ankara Secondary School

We discovered that students learn better when they take responsibility for their own learning. Through these innovative and different learning methods we observed that it was easier to involve students in the lessons. 

Throughout the scenario, we paid attention to the use of different learning areas, the active participation of students in the lesson, the use of different methods and techniques, and the writing of scenarios that will develop students' 21st century skills.

Thanks to this project and as a school team, we learned that active learning can be applied not only in FCL but also in traditional classrooms. In addition, we observed the positive impact that making students more active in the classrooms brought to the course and school success. Our students, who examined the blog pages of different schools, were enthusiastic about this project.

The inclusion of our school principal in the project made it easier for us to carry out the project. In the workshop in Ankara, we understood the importance of active learning, learning by doing and experiencing, by actively learning. Innovative learning methods positively affected the attitudes of both us and our students towards the lesson. In addition, learning to write a scenario was one of the most important points for us.
