2002-2003 School Year Started with AEL Classes

Tuesday, September 17, 2002

Bucharest, 17th September 2002 ? More convincing than any other arguments, the AEL open lessons held for the first time on the occasion of the 2002-2003 school year beginning at the "Ştefan Odobleja" High-school in Bucharest and in the first day of school at the "Al. I. Cuza" High-school in Ploieşti, proved that the reform of the Romanian educational system is in progress and that it started to be effective.

The above message, transmitted to teachers and pupils by Ecaterina Andronescu, Minister of Education and Research, during the two open lessons, was as well emphasized by the Romanian President, Ion Iliescu and Prime Minister Adrian Năstase.

"We should understand that, from now on, less books and more computers will lie on pupils' desks", declared Romanian Prime Minister Adrian Năstase at "Ştefan Odobleja" High-school inauguration.

Roxana Paraschivoiu, teacher at "Mihai Viteazu" National College in Bucharest, illustrated how a biology course can be taught with AEL, demonstrating that the new information tools do not address only to informatics classes and specialists, but to the entire educational process.

Chemistry, physics, mathematics, Romanian or foreign languages are accessible to teachers and pupils in the same friendly way.

What's new about such classes ? taught with AEL to students in front of interconnected computers by the teacher who manages the information displayed on an "intelligent blackboard" ? is the direct, real presentation of the way in which is re-shaped the role of the participants in the educational process. They constantly interact so the information quantity and quality re-dimension the role of the didactical material.

"This is an extraordinary new element, that allows pupils to permanently access updated information sources", Iliescu said at the inauguration of the computerized lab within "Al. I. Cuza" High-school.

Such lessons confirmed that pupils, as well as teachers, are now required to participate creatively in the educational process.
