Open Discovery Space is launching a pan-European School Contest that will reward its 15 most active schools. Our aim is to bring to the limelight the schools that have endeavored to realize the ODS vision in as many aspects of the educational process as possible.
The selecting of the relevant school data will commence end of April 2015. The contest will involve all Open Discovery Space schools that have gone through the processes of completing an E-maturity Questionnaire and submitting an Action Plan. In addition, all schools that wish to participate in this contest have to complete a repeat E-maturity questionnaire to determine the impact of the project.
For schools entering ODS in the third phase (Sep 2014 - Feb 2015) and wish to be considered for the contest, they need to complete the E-maturity questionnaire and the Action Plan immediately, selecting and implementing one or more ODS supported activities (for ideas on activities, please visit 'Resources'), and attempt a repeat of the E-maturity questionnaire in April 2015.
All contestant schools must register in the Open Discovery Space Innovative School Contest 2015 community and follow instructions found here: (http://portal.opendiscoveryspace.eu/community/open-discovery-space-innovative-school-contest-2015-804667)
15 winning schools will send two members of staff (e.g. the school principal and one “change agent”) to the Open Discovery Space Summer Academy, organized byEllinogermaniki Agogi in Attica Greece between 12 and 17 of July 2015 (http://ods.ea.gr/ )
