Savremena Gimnazija participant in Erasmus+ project

Savremena Gimnazija, as part of the LINKgroup educational system, has had the opportunity to participate in the Erasmus+ project LEAF. The project's goal is the development of an innovative methodology for engaging students in the community in order to monitor plant biodiversity, in accordance with the principles of service learning.

In the Erasmus+ project LEAF, along with LINKgroup, schools and non-governmental organisations from Croatia, Romania, France, Greece and Italy are also participating. Over the next two years, working together, all six countries will be striving to achieve the goals of this project through project tasks.

Students become active participants in the teaching process

One of the project tasks was the acquisition of the WE-LAB. WE-LAB is a small portable laboratory that includes a microscope and spectrometer, which students will use in practical lessons. This innovative product has its own internet platform that allows students to build their own laboratory for analysis and create scientific projects simply and interactively using modern technologies. Users can share their experiences and the results of scientific research with all members of the WE-LAB application through the portal. In this way, they can connect online with other schools and scientific institutions and compare the results of their research.

Working in this laboratory, students, during biology classes, through their own research, experiments and projects, arrive at scientific answers. Instead of being passive recipients of knowledge, they become active participants in the teaching process. In this way, they enhance their laboratory and digital skills. We look forward to the future use of this small portable laboratory in everyday teaching.

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.
