The World of Work project has completed the final part of creative stage of methodical materials. Methodical manual WOW has its printed form in 3 language mutations: in Slovak language called Technika, in Czech language called Učení pro život a práci and in German called Welt der Arbeit.

Methodical manual in Slovak language was launched by representatives of all participating countries in the middle of June 2017 at the 6th international conference of educators “The Teacher is Not Google 4”. The participants of the conference were familiarized with the content and structure of new methodical manual, with the experience of the lecturers when testing and evaluating the methodical materials at the workshop WOW Methodical manual: Technology - prepare for the real life. They also tested practical activities from the manual.

The next part of the project is the demonstration, testing and validation of the methodical manual. The process started in June 2017 in Slovakia and in September 2017 in Czech Republic. It will last until the end of November 2017.

The first part of the proces was the Training of trainers, which means that our lecturers instructed 16 teachers from different schools in Slovakia and Czech Republic, on how to use the methodical manual and how to train teachers.

The second part (October and November 2017) are Creative workshops in which the 16 trainers will train at least 192 teachers and teach min.384 pupils from Slovak and Czech republic. As well, parents (min. 320) will be informed during Information meetings.

10 instructive videos will be shot during the workshops to help teachers and pupils with realization of practical tasks and activities from the methodical manual. You can see the sample of the instructive video for the topic A 6.2 We build Log Cabins here:
