Topic description

Scope:

JEAN MONNET ACTIONS IN OTHER FIELDS OF EDUCATION AND TRAINING

Learning about the objectives and the functioning of the European Union is an important part of promoting active citizenship and the common values of freedom, tolerance and non-discrimination. There is a widespread lack of knowledge of the European Union and a lot of disinformation, these in turn increase people disenchantment about the Union and its policies. Teachers and trainers are keen to engage in opportunities for their own professional development; a significant number of teachers express the need to expand their competences for developing an inclusive classroom atmosphere using Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), and teaching in multilingual and multicultural classrooms. They also need opportunities for professional expansion regarding the European dimension of teaching at school, in particular on teaching about the European Union in engaging ways. The overall objective is to promote a better understanding, both in general education and vocational training (ISCED 1 – 4), of the European Union and the functioning of its Institutions

JEAN MONNET NETWORKS IN OTHER FIELDS OF EDUCATION AND TRAINING

Networks of schools and/or VET providers should serve the purpose of giving an international aspect to the new Jean Monnet strand and allow exchange of good practices as well as experiencing co-teaching within a group of countries. The activities will facilitate a common understanding on learning methodologies about European Union matters among practitioners working in different contexts, facing different challenges and constraints due the national legislations and the structure of the curricula. The objective of the networks will be twofold. On the one hand, the schools/VET providers will exchange information and practices on what and how they make their learners become more knowledgeable about the EU. On the other hand, teachers may have mobility experiences of a few days to organise and deliver co-teaching / co-tutoring with their partners.

OBJECTIVES OF THE ACTION

The Jean Monnet Networks aim to constitute the support to schools and VET providers for boosting knowledge on how to teach European Union subjects, they will also give an international edge to the learning exercise. Teachers’ exchange of knowledge (collaborative working on specific subjects and on methodologies, co-teaching experiences, common activities are the basis of the network activities. For example:

Exchanging information on content and promoting results of methodologies applied;

Enhancing cooperation between different schools/VET providers giving them international experience and a European standing;

Exchanging knowledge and mobility for co-teaching;

Fostering cooperation and creating a solid and sustainable knowledge platform among schools and VET providers.
