Monthly topic - February

Diversity and inclusion

February focus is on diversity and inclusion in education, a challenging topic raised more than often by current affairs. In this month’s expert article Clare Ryan, Principal of St. Leo’s College in Ireland, is looking at the mindset of inclusive schools and the huge responsibility placed on institutions to integrate children into new social systems. In our practice article we introduce you to three projects promoting core values of our democratic and multicultural societies through education and don’t miss our news stories on the upcoming Media and learning Conference in Brussels, results of education survey demonstrating a number of Erasmus+ initiatives helping refugees and the concept of translanguaging and why your school should be interested in it!


Monthly topic - January

Entrepreneurship

The capacity for entrepreneurial thinking can be developed in children and youngsters but to do this effectively, teachers need to the appropriate knowledge, understanding and tools. In January’s practice article we offered practical examples of projects reinforcing the entrepreneurial mind-set of both students and teachers. For more inspiring initiatives, you can read about JA-YE Europe’s entrepreneurial education programmes, and the potential of the European Pact for Youth for schools. Finally, good entrepreneurs understand the importance of a risk analysis, and so does Iván Diego on his article on what he thinks is the main problem with Entrepreneurship Education.
