The ILET & Schooling Group is an economically independent research group which collaborate with different research groups and teacher’s training organizations around the world.
ILET stands for Interdisciplinary learning environments technologies.
The general topic of our research is “Process of transformation from the Teachers-Centered Facilitation to the Students-Centered Facilitation through the Interdisciplinary Learning Environment”. We have developed the Humanistic and Investigative Inquiry Learning Environment model (HIILE-model), which was already successfully implemented in different schools around the globe.
Following projects/subtopics are in progress:
1. “THE HUMANISTIC AND INVESTIGATIVE INQUIRY ORIENTED METHOD AS A TOOL TO ENABLE PRIMARY SCHOOL STUDENTS' LEARNING PROCESS IN THE MATHEMATICAL SCHOOL SUBJECTS”.
Possible solution to the problem of interdisciplinary relations in Primary School based on Swedish experience.
2. THE HUMANISTIC AND INVESTIGATIVE INQUIRY ORIENTED METHOD AS A TOOL FOR CONSTRUCTING OF INTERDISCIPLINARY CURRICULUM FOR PRIMARY SCHOOL STUDENTS.
Another interessting solution to the problem of interdisciplinary relations in Primary School.
3. THE INTERDISCIPLINARY LEARNING ENVIRONMENT AND ICT.
Open-minded research about how to integrating mobile phones and HIIO-method.
4. THE INTERDISCIPLINARY LEARNING ENVIRONMENT AS IMMERSION SPACE.
Example of pure action lessons with interdisciplinary teaching/learning approach.
