Lachezar commented on Teabox - Teachers` Magic Box for Inclusion

Thanks for your fruitful comment Shane! It brings new perspectives to our team projects. We reviewed the other toolbox project :) It is raising an important question as to "opening up" young persons to learning.

Our Teabox project is more focused on teachers. We realised that there is a considerable degree of specifics in terms of learning needs of young refugees across the globe, so it might be a better idea to contribute to the professional development of teachers and trainers working with them.

We are deeply inspired with the idea of inclusive education, which sees the diversity in the classroom as a benefit, not an obstacle to learning. Inclusive teachers need to have tools to ensure that all learners are positive to engage in a learning process. There are many such tools in the world of training outside school system, which we decided to collect, group and synthesise for easy and effective application in the classroom. In the long run, teachers will see, which group of methods fits best to their teaching style and groups of learners addressed.

To sum up, we would bring in a wide spectrum of tools, so the teachers are equipped to be effective in different learning contexts and expectations.
