The CARMA Final Conference will be held on 4th and 5th of October 2018 in Brussels at the Royal Library of Belgium. On the occasion of the World Teacher’s Day, CARMA will present the results of testing collaborative learning in schools and our policy recommendations that have been developed as a result of the impact we have seen among teachers and students.
Under the Motto “Collaborative Learning as a Road towards Educational Success”, this European Conference will bring together teachers and Educational politicians and stakeholders from various European countries for 1-day fruitful discussions, learning from the CARMA impact to innovate education using non-formal education. The 2nd day will be composed of field visits to two schools with non-formal learning practices.
So, save this date in your agenda! We look forward to seeing you in Brussels in the Autumn!
Also, CARMA Toolkit: A set-by-step guide for implementing collaborative learning to increase student motivation and participation, will be ready for the conference.
The CARMA Toolkit will soon be available on CARMA’s website, and will target secondary school teachers working with students in the age range of 11 to 16 years old in general. Its primary focus is to support understanding in collaborative learning approaches and offer a step-by-step guide on how to implement collaborative learning activities to increase student’s motivation, participation and raise achievement levels.
The Toolkit addresses the specific needs of secondary education teachers wanting practical ideas on how to introduce collaborative learning in the classroom, in particular when teaching in a complex environment to learners identified as disadvantaged, low achieving and at risk of early school leaving. More importantly, this Toolkit aims at giving teachers the tools to make the collaborative learning environment a reality in schools!
