Course Description

Long heralded as key competences for 21st century learners, the ”Four Cs” (Creativity, Critical Thinking, Communication and Cllaboration) are often embraced in theory yet stump educators in practice. Creativity and Critical Thinking represent inseparable attitudes and abilities for innovation which, contrary to popular belief, CAN be learned, taught and implemented in any classroom.

Communication and Collaboration are fundamental life skills that students can draw from in their everyday experiences at school and shape their ability to live, connect with others and work well in their future. The “Four Cs” strengthen our learners’ ability to find their place – professionally, personally, socially - in today’s fast changing world, while fostering other life-enhancing Cs: curiosity, confidence, caring and cooperation.

This course aims to provide teachers with the knowledge, the know-how and the confidence to incorporate these stimulating skills into their curriculum and school environment. In a true learn-by-doing environment, course participants will gain greater knowledge about what these competences entail and not only how to teach them, but first and foremost how to tap into their own ability to create, to think critically, to communicate effectively and to collaborate well with others.

This course aims to provide teachers with the knowledge, the know-how, and the confidence to incorporate the ”Four Cs” (Creativity, Critical Thinking, Communication, and Collaboration) into our curriculum and school environment. As a participant I have gained greater knowledge about what these competencies entail and not only how to teach them, but first and foremost how to tap into their own ability to create, to think critically, to communicate effectively, and to collaborate well with others. It has been a very satisfying and useful experience.

I found it useful however I would include the first hand experience by observing a vlass in its daily routine.

The course center was easy to find and set in a central location in Florence. The course mainly involved training in how to help students feel safe and at ease to express their ideas and collaborate. Achieving this, one can then focus on training students to think creatively and to think critically. Our trainer was excellent in helping us reflect on possible exercises and how these can be applied within the classroom with our students. She was also very good at helping us pinpoint and work on our own personal difficulties so that we are more able to help our students. I also liked the different school presentations where we were made more aware of how other schools around Europe function.

The 4Cs: Communication, Collaboration, Creativity and Critical Thinking Knowing how to communicate, collaborate, create and think critically are skills that are in incredibly high in demand in today’s fast-changing world and workplace. This self-paced course explained the core concepts behind each of the 4Cs, and how to incorporate them in activities and assignments that excite and engage our learners without sacrificing precious time needed for course content. Ms. Susan Gagliano training is highly interactive, thought-provoking, but also a lot of fun! Susan is a wonderful trainer, engaging and empathic, and the skills she taught are highly relevant to today's classroom. I can't recommend it highly enough.

All of these opportunities are part of teaching and learning 21st century skills in the modern school. It is recommended to use them in the lessons in order to be creative, to encourage the students to reflect and cope independently with innovations in learning.

Toutes ces opportunités font partie de l'enseignement et de l'apprentissage des compétences du 21e siècle dans l'école moderne. Il est recommandé de les utiliser dans les leçons afin d'être créatif, d'inciter les élèves à réfléchir et à faire face de manière autonome aux innovations dans l'apprentissage.

It was very useful as I learned completely new things, some of which I can use in my school. I liked the practical sessions where I was helped by the tutor to complete successfully my tasks Thanks the school and the programme Erasmus+ letting me broaden my qualification.

Our course was well organized. Communication between us and the course provider was very good. The only thing I didn't like about this course is the fact that it is more appropriate for young teachers with little experience. If you work for more than 10 years as a teacher this course will not teach you anything new.

I didn't learn much in the course. I think the course is for beginners. The teacher was interesting but the contents were familiar to me.

I attended a useful workshop full of great ideas for working with students, met other teachers from Europe and exchanged experiences with them.

I was very satisfied by organisation of course. It was the best ratio of practical exercise and theory. It was not too exhausting.We had enough free time to see Firenze and to get known the other participants of the course, exchanging experience of life in the school. Our teacher, Cristina Salvatori, was really kind and patient with all of us. We enjoyed every and each part of our stay in Firenze. We also got a lot of new knowledge and teaching techniques to show to our colleagues in our school.

I am very happy to attend that course which gave me a new insight towards class management through using the 4 Cs in my future teaching. It opens a new prospect before me in order to maintain the positive climate in the classroom and extract the best traits and skills from my students in order to broaden their thinking and work, preparing them for the real life.
