S.O.S. ECE Education in action is a brand new training on the so-called European Citizenship Education which is a subject still not taught in most of the European educational systems.
There are many possible lesson plans on European topics and many tools provided by the European Commission, websites, and EU projects aiming at training teachers to teach “Europe at school”.
This training will give participants a general overview of EU guidelines and policies creating a common base of knowledge and promoting a positive sense of community and critical spirit.
Another aspect of the training is the method. Schools are still very formal and teachers don’t know how to improve Non-Formal Education and Innovative approaches while teaching, especially those methods which imply the breaking of barriers and common cultural walls.
The actual educational guidelines ask teachers to be able to communicate more and make teaching appealing, international, transversal, and funny. With ECE Education it is possible to become more “European Teachers” and start a new teaching process widening the network and opening minds, creating cooperation, innovative skills, and competencies of all.
Knowing more about Europe and its opportunities means having a bigger perspective and being involved in many networks, knowing more information, and being able to explain what is happening in the European Union and the world.
JUMP has been running for years a project titled “We School Europe” involving many schools in Europe and has a training kit of tools and lesson plans to be shared and used by teachers adapting to every specific context. As with all JUMP training, part of the session will be in local schools working “directly” with teachers and students.
The title S.O.S. refers to our intention to deliver teachers a “Tool kit” of lesson ideas, methods, and practical and technological games which we have or can be created by teachers once they know how, useful also to cover those moments where a European subject can cover other specific subjects. ECE Education is transversal and can be taught at different levels also creating debates (if secondary school). This subject can be useful in the school schedule when subject teachers are absent and other teachers can enrich the curriculum with innovative European lessons.
