TehnologijaMejl2-189x1024At Savremena Gimnazija, teachers work with students continually, throughout the school year. Students receive concrete tasks from their teachers and are engaged in specifically designed educational activities and cooperation with the other students. Each student has a mentor that helps with advice, providing emotional support and academic authority. Teachers pay attention to each student individually, either to discover and nourish their talents or provide support in the learning process. Combining individual, team and mentor approach to learning has proven to yield best results.

Savremena Gimnazija has opted for a modern approach, recognising digital literacy as a competence sine qua non of the 21st century. Electronic learning over the internet (aka: online learning, e-learning) provides numerous opportunities to students in terms of development of their knowledge and skills, which are adapted to their age and needs. In the modern, fast-paced world, it is important to acquire not only theoretical but also practical knowledge. This understanding has prompted us to adapt our teaching approach to the contemporary learning styles, while insisting on cultural, creative and physical engagement of our students. Thus, with Savremena Gimnazija secondary school certificate, our students can further their education at any tertiary education programme, both in Serbia and abroad, fully prepared to face the academic challenges.

Contemporary approach to teaching material

  • Teaching material is organised following a hierarchy based on the curriculum in terms of themes, topics and units
  • Teaching material is organised from known to unknown, from theoretical to practical and from easier to more comprehensive
  • At the beginning of each theme, learning objectives and outputs are defined clearly along with the activities planned for each unit
  • Lesson planning is carried out with the view to applying strategies for grabbing students’ attention and perception
  • Materials are adapted to students’ various learning styles and prior knowledge, while being accommodated in the students’ learning context
  • At the end of each theme, there is a theme task, which activates students’ knowledge and encourages them to apply personal experiences while developing a problem-solving strategy
  • There’s teacher’s feedback on student’s progression after every theme task, which provides an opportunity for self-evaluation and understanding of each student’s strengths and weaknesses, as well as a suggested strategy for improvement
  • The learning process is regarded as highly contextual and personal, yet shared with the learning community

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
