Global education for kids
The purpose of the project was to increase the competences of teachers from 4 voivodeships in the field of global education in early education teaching (7–9 year old pupils). The training was attended by 100 teachers from Łódzkie, Mazowieckie, Śląskie and Małopolskie Voivodeships. A further assumption of the project was to strengthen the standing of global education in formal education by incorporating it to early school and pre-school education.
Within the project, not only teachers and methodology consultants were trained during 16 hours of sessions, but also 4 motivational meetings were organised. The purpose of the meetings was to exchange experiences and observations concerning the method of global education teaching. They took 12 hours and were attended by 100 educators. The promotion of global education teaching included 300 initiating classes in kindergartens and primary schools, while the already trained teachers carried out approximately 600 workshops attended altogether by 2000 children. During the classes, they familiarised themselves with the culture, daily life, as well as fairy tales and plays of other cultural centres. Furthermore, educational resources for teachers containing 10 lesson plans along with additional resources were updated and published in 1000 copies, entitled ‘Global education for kids’.
