Three online training on different themes for teachers and educators will occur between May 9th and 31st. The initiative is part of the European project “Beyond COVID-19: The new era of teaching. Digital learning for social inclusion”, which aims to empower teachers with tools and skills to facilitate their participation and involvement with young people and simultaneously raise their awareness of specific current topics.
The pandemic showed among two years numerous challenges. Among them, the importance of investing in digital in the most diverse sectors, namely in education, was evident. However, during this period, the lack of training of teaching staff in Information Technology (ICT) and skills for young people, particularly those in disadvantaged contexts, became evident. To fill this Educational gap, AIDGLOBAL integrated, as a partner, the project “Beyond COVID-19: The new era of teaching. Digital learning for social inclusion”. It aims to empower teachers with new social and digital skills to provide an adequate response to the challenges of the future of the digital society in which we currently live.
The project is subdivided into three phases. The first is diagnosing digital skills in the pandemic and post-pandemic context. Secondly, a European Digital Curriculum will be developed. It aims to define the learning strategies and the most appropriate digital and technological tools to respond to the training needs of students in situations of vulnerability, promoting inclusion and seeking to reduce early school leaving. The third phase involves educators’ qualification through online courses on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), defined by the UN for the 2030 Agenda, inclusive education and ICT, applied to learning environments.
The topics to be addressed in the May formations focus on Climate Change, Hate Speech and Mentoring as a tool to deal with the problem of school dropouts. When these issues are part of the media agenda, AIDGLOBAL believes that it is crucial to empower teachers with the necessary skills to promote debate, alerting young students to the impact of the themes.
The training activities occur between May 9 and 31 in an online format and have a total duration of 26 hours. Each course will have its workload, and access to the platform will be made available shortly after registration and can be carried out at the trainee’s pace.
Once the training is completed, a Certificate of Participation will be issued by the team of the European BET.
Registrations are open. If you are a teacher or educator, do not miss this opportunity. Sign up here.
