The first workshops within the LINK edu Alliance

As part of the "Become a VR Pro" project, whose goal is to explore the possibility of applying virtual reality (VR) in education and its use in teaching in LINK edu Alliance educational institutions of formal education, workshops were held for professors and teachers of Information Technology School – ITS, Information Technology High School – ITHS and Primary School Savremena.

A lot of people attended the workshops, and teachers had the opportunity to learn how to use the VR glasses and other VR equipment available to them within the LINK edu Alliance. Improving their professional development in this way, teachers gained knowledge that will help them to keep the quality of teaching in LINK edu Alliance institutions at the highest level and in accordance with the latest, proven educational trends.

It is also planned that teachers from other K–12 institutions within the LINK edu Alliance, as well as from the Faculty of Contemporary Arts, undergo this type of training in the near future, as part of the "Become a VR Pro" project.

At the same time, participation in the project is also a prerequisite for participation in the contest for the best innovation in the use of virtual reality in education, which will be announced in the second phase of the project.

We are proud to say that LINK edu Alliance teachers are already VR Pro and are bringing state-of-the-art education to their students!

I am extremely pleased and proud to be the parent of a Savremena student. During my first encounter with the school management, when I asked about my child’s potential enrolment, I saw how much love, enthusiasm and professionalism you put in your work. I was impressed by your approach, ideas and methods. I couldn’t believe something like this existed in our country! It doesn’t take long to realise that this is a school you would recommend to everyone. Creativity, modern technology, top-quality education, and most of all, the humaneness that can be seen throughout the school, make it truly different and worthy of its name – Savremena Gimnazija. With such an approach, the success of this school and, consequently, our children’s success, is unavoidable. Congratulations! Jelena Đorđević, Andrija’s mum
Contemporary in any sense of the word, our school offers functional knowledge and quality preparation for tertiary education in Serbia and abroad. Implementing modern and creative teaching in the classroom, where the teachers’ pedagogy and students’ performance are aligned with the highest academic standards for the high-school finals, our school develops linguistic, mathematical, scientific, artistic, cultural, technical and ICT competence, which is a prerequisite for further education and professional development. Teaching is supported by the interactive whiteboards and educational software, whereas practice exercises research and critical thinking.
