Tools and Methods Search

Welcome to the search area for tools and methods!

We have collected examples from 90 schools in several European countries. You can search by four different criteria:

  • At which age level you teach
  • The different subjects and activities you are interested in
  • Teaching issues you want to look into
  • How to strenghten different skills and competences among the students

More will come, and you can help by sharing your best practice.

When you have selected a tool or method, there is an option to review the tool. We encourage you to share your opinion or view. This will help us develop the virtual guide, and give important feedback to your colleagues all over Europe.
