Support to the Peer Team of the First Technical School in Kragujevac which helps students learn more efficiently
Students of the First Technical School in Kragujevac have designed an excellent method for their peers to learn how to facilitate and speed up their learning process. A great student initiative like this one had to be rewarded.
This is why LINK group, in cooperation with the School of intellectual skills, has provided free training for 30 students who will coach their schoolmates. The training was held on Wednesday, November 30, 2016, at the First Technical School in Kragujevac.
Practical knowledge for each student
Within their planned activities aimed at making learning popular, the Peer Team of the First Technical School decided to organize training for learning coaches at their school.
The team recognized the need many students have to improve their learning and time organization techniques. However, since a large number of students attend the First Technical School, it was impossible to organize the training for all. Consequently, the Peer Team came to the idea to organize training for 30 students who will become coaches and a knowledge base for others.
A competition was organized for students to apply and express their motivation for participating in the project. The selected students then attended a workshop carried out by Filip Senćanski, a lecturer at the School of intellectual skills.
LINK group provides students with everything they need
LINK group supported the realization of the training and provided free participation for the students; in cooperation with the First Technical School, the company also provided “Efficient Learning” handbooks, designed to help them use their full potential.
In order to make the knowledge available to all students, a portion of the handbooks was donated to the school library. This way, every student will be able to use them and it will be much easier for the new, young coaches to teach their peers.
Peers selflessly share their newly acquired knowledge
During the school year, the trained coaches will organize two workshops for their peers at the First Technical School.
All students described the training as highly successful. This is a learning method that motivates and increases productivity, and most of them said they would participate in similar programs again.
