    TEA LEAF PROJECT / Teaching Ecology through Apps : Learning Engagement And FunTeaching biodiversity, ecology with serious games: from action research to innovative practices:· How? What practices? With what tools?· What benefits for students?· What professional development for teachers and future students?The TEALEAF project is an ERASMUS + project within the framework of the strategic partnerships for school education, which took place from September 2014 to August 2017.Three years of research and research by a group of researchers and teachers (primary and secondary), led by an international team of researchers, teacher advisors and teacher trainers. The partners supporting this project are:--DUBLIN (Dublin City University) Ireland, -PILSEN (ZAPADOCESKA UNIVERZITA V PLZNI - West Bohemia University) CZ Republic, -LJUBLJANA (UNIVERZA V LJUBLJANI) Slovenia, -ALMERIA (UNIVERSIDAD DE ALMERIA) Spain,-LAVAL (Direction Diocésaine de l’Enseignement Catholique de la Mayenne (UDOGEC/DDEC53)) France.Experimentation and collaborative work in action research workshops in each country and in a summer course in Dublin City University in July 2016 took place for all the teachers involved in the project (48 teachers from 5 countries). About 900 students/year participated in these experiments , around 3600 students during 3 years (primary school, college and students with special needs in secondary schools).This research-action work (teachers, researchers, pedagogical consultants, trainers) allowed analysing practices to identify the relevant steps to achieve the project’s objectives. This analysis is at the heart of the action research project. It includes examining and improving the applications used and tested in this process, as well as creating serious games.The project’s partners, in the long term, keep the same developmental objectives for different publics:- training resource teachers for primary and secondary schools through in-service training - training future student teachers in initial teacher preparation,- providing adapted educational resources, including for pupils with special needs,- developing teachers’ learning communities in school networks on the theme of biodiversity using serious games in order to perpetuate their network of resource teachers.The productions resulting from this project are numerous and diversified:- website,- surveys of teachers' populations in each country,- creation of a continuing education program- experimentation from the in-service course with 48 teachers from 5 different countries- testing of existing serious games- serious games creation- conferences- Teacher's book- Academic book- publications of research work
