IMAS comes from the researched and tested technologies and methods in previous and successful Erasmus+ projects (like MAPLE and Science4Fun). It also comes from modern bussiness development models for providing long-term and sustainable Open Educational Resources (OERs) that underpin progression to nationally and internationally accredited qualifications in Mathematics at Level 1, 2and 3 of the European Qualifications Framework.
The objectives are:
- To provide teachers a statistics tool that makes the progress measurement of the learning proccess in mathematics automatic.
- To raise levels of digital literacy in schools in order to make people more self-sufficient in their use of technology and less dependent on formal retraining every time there is a shift in the technological ecosystem.
- To develop a strategy to support the development of Open Education Resources, including free services founded in a sustainable business model that is self-sustaining.
- To gather empirical evidence of what children know and can do in mathematics in order to feedback to and develop the curriculum based on direct evidence.
- To provide a teaching resource showcasing best practice in Mathematical teaching including schemes of work, lesson plans and other resources.
The project partners are from ES, NL, BE, CY, IE. They represent mainly small business enterprises and two universities. They have a wealth of technical and pedagogical expertise and share a collective enthusiasm for practical methods of reducing costs and improving efficiency through the use of free software, OERs and free services supported by a contemporary "freemium" business model.
