​​​​​
All partner institutions in the project consortium are facing different challenges concerning to education as it is fundamental a transformation of education and teacher training to adapt our schools to the needs of the 21st century. There is a need to envisage which competences will be relevant and how these will be acquired to determinate how education and training policy can adequately prepare learners for life in the future society. This project has been designed with the objective of working on those relevant competences which enable citizens to flexibly and proactively respond to changes. Problem solving, reflection, creativity, critical thinking, learning to learn, risk-taking, collaboration and entrepreneurship will be the key competences that will be developed in this project. 

The partnership of this project is made up of ten institutions in five different countries. We have two partners in each country: Spain, Denmark, United Kingdom, Bulgaria and Portugal.  In each country there are two types of institutions: 

  • Teacher training organisations.
  • Primary or secondary schools


Participants from each institution gather all skills, competences, expertise and knowledge that are necessary for getting a successful project development. 

The main goals of DICE (Developing  Innovation and Creativity in Education) related to educators are:  

  • To research and promote innovative methods to work on creativity and innovation that can be easily implemented in formal education settings.
  • To train teachers/educators in the use of new methods and tools related to creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship.  
  • To apply the tools and methods in order to promote the ability to use a systematic process to define problems and come up with innovative solutions.
  • To strength the profiles of the teaching professions, including teachers, school leaders and teacher educators through enhancing teachers’ professional development and supporting teachers in collaborative and innovative practices.


The main goals related to students are:
-
To support students when they face the fast changes in our society in order they can have tools to turn challenges into opportunities. 
- To nurture the development of key transversal competences such as creativity, critical thinking, teamwork, risk taking and proactivity.
- To train them in some methods where they will follow a process, define problems and create solutions in a creatively way. 

The main role of all institutions in the project will be to train ourselves using the previous knowledge and experience from each partner in different innovative methods. Besides, teachers will implement these tools with their students at schools and trainers will support teachers during the implementation.  

This project attempts to be a leading initiative, that will support the education community  to make progress in the field of creativity and innovation through effective, authentic, practical and sustainable actions.
