Toolkit

The “Toolkit GREEN S.E.E.D.S.” is a curriculum especially designed to meet the needs of the teachers who work in small, decentralised schools. It is made up of 5 modules of three units each, which cover all the issues related to teaching and working in small classes. It has been written by the University of Vigo and Synthesis Center LTD, with the support of all of the Partners, with particular reference to the training on the toolkit contents, where the modules were tested.

The Modules were developed between September 2019 and January 2020.
The subsequent training, in two steps, lasted until the end of June 2020:

  1. Training of the national responsible (5-6.03.2020)
  2. Training of the local teachers at local level (01.04.2020 – 31.06.2020)

The innovative aspects of the Toolkit rely on:

  1. the completeness of the approach;
  2. the focus on competence and skills for shared teaching and extended learning environment. The training on a transnational scale perfected the path for its replicability.
