Description of the project
Today’s challenge of education requires European countries to promote initiatives to create a system of values while confidently defending the culture of pacifism. The concept of a sustainable environment is very important and it requires a lot of ideas and everyday practice, not only from individuals but also from the involvement of a large number of stakeholders. Nevertheless, positive actions can be strengthened and proven to be more effective thanks to the cooperation of indirect structures, such as schools or local associations that are privileged places for the education and training of young generations.
The Sustainable Development Goals for Pupils (SDGFP) project aims to provide young students with the competencies that can address the challenges of the 21st century such as; the new world economy and unemployment, unprecedented global migration, climate instability, and the growing need for international environmental management. Another objective of the project is to provide teachers with digital competences that can encourage them to adopt in their curriculum the perspective of global education and provide them with useful methodological insights and practical tips for transforming such education into everyday practice. This investment in knowledge, skills, and competencies will benefit not only these two targets but also other individuals, institutions, organizations, and society by contributing to the growth and ensuring equity, prosperity, and social inclusion in Europe and beyond.
- Piloting the online platform that will involve in total 100 pupils between 10 to 14 years old in 5 partner countries. The learning materials will empower and assist pupils in developing key competencies (critical thinking, creativity, and problem solving) and learning about the SDGs.
- Implementation of the DST course for 12 teachers that will help them to gain a comprehensive understanding of digital competences for educators, be able to assess digital competence of oneself as an educator, exploring the usage of digital technologies for communication, collaboration, and professional development.
- Design and Development of an Online Platform: The platform will provide different learning materials with different shapes such as interactive presentations, quizzes, challenges for each of the 17 SDGs goals, dedicated to the pupils between 10-14 years old. The learning materials will be used with gamification methodologies in order to efficiently and effectively engage the pupils in the learning and so as to provide teachers with engaging and responsive learning materials that they can use online with their pupils.
- Design and Development of a Digital Skills Course for Teachers: the digital course will support teachers developing their digital skills, thus allowing them to better deliver on distance learning education. The digital course will help teachers, school leaders and teaching professions that work with pupils directly to improve their digital skills for distance learning and supported schools’ ability to provide remote education. The course will encourage teachers to use the digital tools in their curriculum, so that they can effectively deliver on distance learning activities.
