Digital Education? Distance Teaching? Yes, you read it right. We renamed the Pan-European Conference from Distance Teaching to Digital Education. Because in the current health situation around the globe some teachers work in on-site classrooms and some still teach on distance.
Whatever your situation is, digitization became now more important than ever resulting in rapid need for learning. We want to support teachers as much as we can.
The 6th Pan-European Conference on Digital Education will be on 24 September 2020 from 15:00 to 16:30 Central European Time (Brussels).
27th August 2020 from 15:00 to 16:30 Central European Time (Brussels).

As a response to the consequences of the Covid-19 the European Commission approved an additional round of the Erasmus+ Strategic Partnerships.

Our trainer Milica Vukadin is really productive with creating various useful content for digital education. In this Padlet you can find 32 different formative assessment activities.
Thanks to Marta Torreiro, a participant of our international learning community, all the activities also have a Spanish translation.
Access the Padlet with all the activities here and try them in your digital or face-to-face classroom.
On the Erasmus+ teacher training course From Distance to Blended Learning we devote one whole day to formative assessment in a digital education. Join, practice and get new ideas for your subjects.
In this blog we just want to remind that the root cause of students' drop-out lies in their unfulfilled psychological needs. They don't see school as a secure place, in which they would feel appreciated.
Every school can build their capacity to reduce drop-out and prevent early school leaving. Robert Reasoner developed a useful framework, which can remind us on different perspectives when thinking about early school leaving.
In developing tools and activities to prevent early school leaving we will be successful, if we address all the psychological needs (Reasoner's framework):
Psychological needs and participative learning methods are at heart of our Erasmus+ course on preventing early school leaving. Check the course programme and apply to build your school capacity for working with students at risk of dropping out.
In this blog you will find a link to a rich resource pool of tools to prevent early school leaving of students. The tools are available in 4 different languages.
The Cross-sectoral Cooperation Focused Solutions for Preventing Early School Leaving (backronym: CroCooS – Prevent Dropout!) was an international project aimed at preventing dropout. The general aim of the CroCooS project was to contribute to the specification and the applicability of an institutional early warning system (EWS) for preventing early leaving from education and training, by identifying elements of EWS.
The projected resulted in a rich resource pool for teachers, counsellors and headmasters who want to build their school capacity to reduce early school leaving.
Find resources in 4 languages: English, Hungarian, Serbian and Slovene:

In the Erasmus+ Key Action 2 entitled CREATOR we contributed in preparing teaching materials for teachers and learning workbook for students.
Completely open handbook is available in 6 different languages: English, German, Italian, Croatian, Romanian and Slovene. Get the handbook here.
Entrepreneurship education has long been focused on a theoretical approach, preparing a thorough business plan and development of a company in the office. In the last decade, there has also been a shift, towards a more experiential approach in this field, based on developing ideas, practical methods, and tools, fieldwork and development of a business model. The experiential teaching of entrepreneurship has the potential to bridge the gap between the worlds of education and work.
The handbook is designed as a teaching material that enables teachers and trainers to use experiential methods and tools to teach their students and mentees how to develop and start implementing their business idea. It is prepared in a way that everyone can use it to guide, train or mentor young people and job seekers, to help them develop an entrepreneurial mindset and enable them to enter the job market as more qualified employees or as a self-employed person, an entrepreneur. We believe that young people have the potential to successfully solve current and future challenges in the world. We just need to provide assistance and guidance based on a practical, experiential approach.
This handbook was developed within the scope of the project “CREATOR – Experimental Approach to Teaching Entrepreneurship through Workplace Training”. The methodology, practical activities and didactical material for teaching entrepreneurship presented in this handbook were tested and validated at the train-the-trainers entrepreneurial training, led by STEP Institute in April 2018 in Ljubljana, Slovenia. It enabled teachers and trainers to practically experience the whole process in order to ensure that they will all use the same approach to the implementation of local training with teachers and students in their countries. However, the handbook is written in a way that it can be easily understood and used by anyone who works with students (or other individuals) and who is at least a little bit interested in entrepreneurship.
Peter Drucker said: »Entrepreneurship is neither science nor art. It is a practice.« And practice makes perfect.
We empower teachers so they can do their job best.
