Joint staff training events
‘Children As Philosophers’ aims to promote and offer an innovative methodology within the practice of philosophy with children that addresses specifically social inclusion. The interest towards this theme rises from the consideration that the practice of philosophy is a useful tool that supports the development of critical and social skills in children and teenagers, favouring the implementation of a new form of collective action, inspired by values as peaceful living, respect, dialogue and debate.
The project foresees staff and pupils working together to develop a number of resources.
Staff will engage in a number of joint training events which will then be cascaded to other staff in schools incorporating new methods, with pupils actively involved in developing work to share and showcase with their peers across the project countries. The training themes are:
- Principles of Philosophy and Creative thinking (Italy)
- Metacognition (Romania)
- Social philosophy (Sweden)
