Tools

The school community collaborations, employed numerous tools and pedagogical methods. For example, many schools used field studies e.g. for registering information about local traffic issues, and about collecting information about local soil and local flora, with the participation not only of students but also of parents and other specialists. Other techniques used were auditing local peoples’ views, about the issue investigated by the school, visits to relevant places for further study and data collection by interviewing the people from the community, observation, experimentation and data logging. Participants organised different assemblies for the promotion and dissemination of the interventions’ outcomes, the end products of the program and their use for the rest of the community. The tools used were matching to the aims and expected outcomes that each school agreed upon and sought to achieve within the collaboration. The factors hindering the implementation of the tools and the methods mainly concerned the understanding of how these are implemented as well as understanding each partner’s part for the implementation.
