The current situation in the world with the COVID-19 pandemic has forced 1.5 billion children out of school and into new remote learning modalities, online, via TV or even radio. As the world paves the way to reopen the schools many challenges are still ahead.
During these challenging times, educators have a critical role to play in supporting children’s social, emotional and spiritual well-being, and creating learning opportunities to strengthen children’s critical thinking, sense of belonging to a larger community, interconnectedness with others while keeping physical distancing, and providing spaces for children to reflect about and respond to the ethical challenges we all face.
During this course, based on the Learning to Live Together program and its Ethics Education Framework, educators will be introduced to the Transformative Pedagogy promoted by Arigatou International that supports teachers to create safe, positive and empowering learning environments during these challenging times.
