The Together project

The Together project focuses on service-learning, a specific education approach which combines learning goals with community service so as to encourage students to acquire practical knowledge while meeting societal needs. Service-learning is not volunteering, but a method that’s systemically incorporated into the curriculum and designed to develop a long-term relationship between schools and the community.

Through this project, students are taken out of the classroom and placed in real-life situations whereby they implement cultural services that are beneficial for society, such as the methods for digitizing cultural heritage: 3D modelling, digital catalogues, digital promotional materials, video production, digital storytelling and online advertising.

 

Through this project, Savremena Gimnazija students will cooperate with the Museum of Science and Technology.

Partners in the project are Berlin Cosmopolitan School (Germany), Agrupamento de Escolas José Estevão (Portugal), Budakov Films Eood (Bulgaria), A & A Emphasys Interactive Solutions (Cyprus), European Association of Geographers (Belgium), Politeknika Ikastegia Txorierri (Spain) and Eurocrea Merchant (Italy).

The Together project has the following goals:

  • transforming schools into “open learning organizations” that become cultural hubs for the entire community and establish regular cooperation with local partners (museums, theatres, etc.) so as to meet societal requirements and create social value;
  • refreshing the humanities programme in schools;
  • empowering students to become active and informed citizens who advocate national values, participate in civic life, and work towards the common good.

​Project benefits for Savremena’s students include:

  • instead of digital consumers, students become digital creators;​
  • assisting students with puberty-related issues;
  • developing interpersonal and communication skills, problem solving​, ​initiative, active citizenship, ethical reasoning, and social and political understanding​;
  • encouraging learning motivation and self-regulation.

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
