KidsINNscience will identify and promote innovative approaches for teaching and learning science, adapt and test them for implementation in mainstream schools and develop innovation strategies in all participating countries. The consortium proposes a collaborative project (specific international cooperation action (SICA)) for experts who work with and on new methods for science education. The overall objective of the project is to develop adaptive strategies to facilitate the innovation of science education in formal and informal settings. Strategies for innovating curricula and strategies for teaching and learning in science and technology will be analysed and compared among 8 different countries in Europe and 2 in Latin America. The role of gender and cultural diversity will explicitly be taken into account in all phases of the project. KidsINNscience proposes to adopt an adaptive strategy that enables participating countries to learn from each other and develop feasible innovation plans that fit the specific conditions of each of the countries. The project will deliver a long list of innovations from all participating countries, carry out effective pilots to contribute to a solid evidence base and formulate a set of criteria for innovation of teaching and learning of science. KidsINNscience will also make use of non-European educational settings in Brazil and Mexico in order to find new methods and strategies for science education to be adapted and used in all participating countries. The KidsINNscience consortium unites experienced partners from: -Universities and research institutions, who have been working on new methods in science education for many years (LSBU, RM3, IJS, UFRJ) -Research partners who are specified on innovative didactic models and new learning arrangements (UZH, FUB, SLO, AIE, USC, CINVESTAV ) The consortium reflects all required competencies to perform the proposed parts of KidsINNscience with the desired quality and expertise.
