A sixth grade Croatian language textbook published by Profil Klett (www.profil-klett.hr) picked up a BELMA − Best European Learning Materials Award, the publisher announced.
As the publisher announced, the group of Croatian teachers that authored the textbook took the top BELMA award for the high quality of the textbook, which promotes reading in the digital age.
The publisher notes that this is above all the success of the authors of the set of textbooks, Croatian language teachers with many years of experience: Diana Greblički-Miculinić, Lidija Sykora-Nagy, Dejana Tavas, Krunoslav Matošević, Ela Družijanić Hajdarević, Zrinka Romić and Nataša Jurić Stanković.
Diana Greblički-Miculinić notes that the team aimed to produce a modern textbook with a level of quality that invited pupils to read, bringing them closer to literature and opening horizons. She said she was delighted that the BELMA panel of judges had recognised their efforts.
The three-member panel, made up of international experts in the domain of education, highlighted the quality of the material, calling it ideal for promoting a love of reading in the digital age.
It was also pointed out that Croatian literature is clearly positioned in relation to the literature of other nations. In its decision the panel also offered some useful advice to improve future materials, including adding work assignments for work in pairs or groups, debates, and creative projects.
The production of the textbook included a broad team of Croatian specialists, including Marina Hrupec of Studio 2M who produced the graphic design and Dragan Kordić who produced the illustrations.
The digital education content was created in the IZZI digital platform, with the prize going to the team of Dejan Varga, Majda Čolak, Hana Tepeš and Andrijana Mihaljević. The textbook was edited by Klara Šarčević and Diana Greblički-Miculinić. (Hina)
