The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic caused severe disruptions in the education sector and heavily affected teachers, students and parents alike. School closures and the move to full home-based learning globally had far-reaching effects on the teaching & learning environment, ranging from challenges linked to curriculum development & delivery, access to technology to the lack of social engagement etc.
This ASEFClassNet 2020 school collaboration focuses on the Wellbeing of teachers, students and parents at the secondary education level and includes 4 specific activity strands:
(1) Wellbeing & Mental Health
(2) Parent-Teacher Collaboration
(3) Pedagogical Knowledge & Digital Competences
(4) Intercultural Understanding & Exchange
The objective is to facilitate a peer-to-peer learning and support network that creates awareness and builds resilience & knowledge for a conducive teaching & learning environment amidst the current uncertainties. Through inter-cultural collaborations and the opportunity to share experiences as well as innovative practices with an educator community from Asia and Europe, the project also contributes to the development of soft skills, mutual understanding and a mindset of Global Citizenship.
The open call for this school collaboration is already closed – Wednesday, 30 September 2020.
