In the rapidly changing context that characterizes the current era, Education (special and mainstream) is required to meet the expectations of students, teachers and parents. It has been shown that by expanding the curriculum with new subjects, new educational tools and environments, new /innovative pedagogical approaches, cross-thematic and experiential methods and ideas, school will be able to respond to the modern learning and psychosocial needs of students and communities in general. The Innovation actions in education provide a pathway for schools, teachers, students and parents to obtain greater individual school autonomy and managerial flexibility in order to implement diverse approaches to learning. Has been proven that a structured but flexible framework could facilitate the idea generation, development, implementation, testing, evaluation, and rapid-cycle iteration. This process is grounded in science and supported within a growing community of change agents who are committed to shared learning, cumulative knowledge, and transformative child outcomes at the population level.
The course is based on “learning by doing and reflecting” training through various collaborative activities. The content and fundamental information will be introduced through cross-thematic and experiential learning methods and approaches within a group instructional setting. You will be able to gradually generate classroom-based as well as home-based strategies suitable for pupils with and without disabilities
