ECALL PROJECT

Over the past 20 years, reforms in the primary education have been implemented in the Republic of North Macedonia, which mainly focused on formal education, while neglecting the importance of extracurricular activities in schools for the overall development of the child. Thus, there was a discrepancy between regular (reformed) teaching and the realization of extracurricular activities.
Having in mind in various domestic and international reports (OECD, PISA) it has been ascertained that the achievements of pupils are very low and are in decline (especially in the field of Literacy), it is necessary to find ways and strategies for improving the situation in the schools, and in terms of teaching, but also in finding other more creative methods of learning and teaching, motivating pupils to develop the basic competences.
That is why changes are necessary, but not only as the establishment of specific standards of knowledge for each teaching subject (which refers to the study of mother tongue and / or foreign languages), but above all as the development of a flexible and modern system which will encompass the acquisition of knowledge, skills and development of attitudes in each pupil, as well as developing a system based on the competences necessary for the successful involvement of every individual in all processes of contemporary society.
The main objectives of the project is to connect and build a complementary and coherent system of primary education based on competences that are developed both through regular classes and extracurricular activities through preparation of documents, recommendations, training and guides for teachers and the exchange of innovative and creative ideas.
