About the project
“The Smart World Wins” is an Erasmus plus project of the Strategic Partnership of schools from Slovenia, Macedonia and Serbia. One of the essential goals of professional education is the development of practical knowledge and skills that would lead to faster adaptation to work in real time and better competitiveness of students on the labor market.
Accordingly, we believe that it is crucial for schools to develop online learning as an innovative approach to teaching and learning, but it is equally important for students to develop critical thinking, teamwork and competitive spirit.
We have integrated all these important aspects of education into the project.
