Final Report - PENCIL (Permanent European Resource Centre for Informal Learning)

Project ID: 511165
Funded under: FP6-SOCIETY

Abstract

This is the final activity report of PENCIL, a project aimed to combine field programmes and academic research identifying ways to transform informal science activities into innovative quality tools for science teaching.

Fourteen science centres / museums created mini networks involving schools, pupils, teachers associations, research laboratories, educational authorities, education and science communication specialists to run pilot projects on new ways to conduct science teaching.

This document presents a series of findings emerging from the experiences gathered by PENCIL's fourteen pilot projects in carrying out educational programmes at the intersection between formal and informal learning environments and methodologies. For each finding, a recommendation is proposed by which future projects may build upon lessons learned throughout PENCIL.
