TEACHERS’ TOOLKIT FOR THE 21ST CENTURY SKILLS: HANDS-ON APPROACH - COURSE DESCRIPTION

 

Introduction

This course is aimed at teachers and school staff from primary to adult level as well as educational advisors and staff of non-government organizations, government and policy makers. The traditional view of schools as places where the transfer or knowledge occurs is changing and their main role in today’s world is not to teach facts but to prepare the students for real life challenges. As Albert Einstein said Education is not the learning of facts, but training of the mind to think. Therefore, this shift requires us to redefine the role of teachers within them and the way learning takes place. The aim of this course is to aid educators to move their classrooms to a more 21st century skill focused environment. Participants will explore various practical ideas connected to learning skills, 4C & Soft skills and how to apply Montessori Approach in education of the future. Learning will occur through active participation and hands-on activities suitable and applicable in different subjects and at various levels. If you are an educator looking for new strategies to empower your students for the real world challenges, this course is for You!

Preparation

After registration participants will receive a pre-course questionnaire which will be used by the trainer to learn about participants’ teaching backgrounds and to assess their exact needs. Before the beginning of the course a basic reading list will be suggested to participants to prepare for the training. Participants will also be asked to publish a presentation about themselves, their professional context and their culture. The presentation will be available on the virtual collaboration platform. It will be used during the first meeting, but it will also be available online to the other participants so that they can have a preliminary knowledge of the group they are going to be part of. Participants will receive information about the country they are going to visit in order to prepare them for their cultural experience.

Follow up

 

After the course participants will be asked to share what they have learned with the rest of the staff in their schools. Since they will all join the virtual collaboration platform they will be able to further discuss and deepen the understanding of the themes of this course and therefore keep on learning. Moreover, they will be encouraged to share materials showing how they are using what they have learned in their everyday work in terms of ideas, photos, videos, lesson plans, assessment and self-assessment forms, etc. creating an open educational resource available to everyone else from the group. Thanks to the virtual collaboration platform they will all be networked which will provide greater opportunities to develop future partnerships and projects. Further books and articles to deepen the topic and contacts with some other practitioners all over Europe and in the world will be suggested by the trainer. The methods shared and explored and the bibliography given will allow the participants to complete and improve their educational path.
