SCHOOL4NET-GEN, School for NET-generation


SCHOOL4NET-GEN is a project that aims at improving the quality of science education in Croatian schools.

The main aim of the planned research is to explore the attitudes and (self-)evaluation of teachers, school principals (managers), parents and students about the specific traits of the existing didactical paradigm (teacher-centred education) that still dominates in Croatian schools, and to explore the possible didactical solutions for internal reform that focuses on student-centred education based on contemporary theories of teaching and learning and the possibility of enriching education with ICT.

Empirical non-experimental, quasi-experimental, and action research is planned. The following methods of data collection will be used during the research: questionnaires, interviews, focus groups, systematic observation, case studies and content analysis. A number of stratified student samples (N≈3000), teacher samples (N≈600) and school principals (N≈300) from different counties in the Republic of Croatia will be used for data collection.

According to the general aim of the research and research problems, a number of research instruments (either constructed by the researchers or already verified) will be employed. In order to apply a holistic approach to the research area, qualitative and quantitative methodology will be used and triangulation will be applied for the purpose of ensuring quality in the data analysis.
