This year, Connecting Worlds wants to support teachers participating in the project in the implementation of Global Competence promoted since 2018 by the OECD through its PISA program, with the purpose of developing the capacity of students to:
“Preparing our youth for an inclusive and sustainable world”
In order to face this challenge, the Connecting Worlds’ project offers this support with the objective of facilitating teachers’ development and assessment of students’ global capacities:
The Teachers’ Meeting will take place between July 13–19 in Lisbon, and will be fully financed by the EU. During the meeting, teachers will have the opportunity to get to know other teachers from Portugal, Italy and Spain, and to share their classroom experiences. In addition, teachers will also be able to participate in the creation of a manual on good practices, to be jointly written by the people participating in the meeting.
Being eligible to participate in the Teachers’ Meeting requires having fully participated in the Connecting Worlds project, i.e.:
Teachers who meet these requirements will enter the selection stage.
These activities – that are an extension of the Connecting Worlds project – are made possible thanks to European Union funding, specifically through its ERASMUS + program.
