The book is intended for teachers, teacher trainess, school managers, teacher trainers and policy makers in education – all those who shape the educational experience. It contains 20 papers contributed by researchers from 14 countries. The aim of this collection of papers is to introduce different aspects of innovation in the teaching/learning process and teachers´ research work in different countries. In particular we wanted to shed light on pedagogical innovations in different subject fields: descriptions of pedagogical innovations, their theoretical background and evaluation.

In the first part of the article we define experiential and project teaching and point out its importance in teaching Environmental Studies in the first three years of primary school. In the second part of the article an empirical study is presented. We designed a didactic experiment which was conducted with respect to the two thematic clusters in Environmental Studies. We were interested in the effect of project teaching on pupils’ knowledge in Environmental Studies. The empirically obtained results show project teaching to have a significant positive influence on pupils’ knowledge.

We presenting learning and teaching in a modern society. As a leading principle we underpin lifelong learning and related teaching and learning of different contents, which help develop not only intellectual, but also physical, emotional and spiritual dimensions of an individual. Consequently, also the role of a teacher is changing. Teachers are no longer only transmitters of knowledge, but rather organisers of an encouraging learning environment, mentors and promoters of independent learning. They develop and promote various strategies for lessons being adequate to modern didactic paradigm.

Through the Bologna renovation we modernised all the curricula for lower school. Hence, we took into account the European Guidelines in Education for the curricula of Mathematical Didactics which for its instruction above all emphasise the development of pupils’ mathematical literacy. The most important in mathematical literacy is the link of mathematics with the real world, i.e., the use of mathematics in different problem situations. Thus, the main objective of the Mathematical Didactics Curriculum is to give students an adequate training in teaching of mathematical literacy.
