The practice of applying diagnostic tests is one of the pedagogical tools that help to assess the needs of students, both individually and collectively

Learning is a complex process, and it depends a lot on the individual. Some of us are more comfortable with words and theory. Others, on the contrary, need images and examples to understand the simplest things quickly.

However, if there is something that most of us agree on, it is that there are certain elements that, in general, make learning a friendlier process for everyone.

If you work as a teacher or are simply curious about teaching and other didactic processes, stay with us and discover these keys to improve your learning and stand out from the rest.

INITIAL DIAGNOSTIC TESTS

Many times, people dedicated to teaching tend to assume that all individuals in their class are level in theoretical and practical knowledge. However, this is usually a mistake. An error that, in addition, costs him peace of mind and makes it difficult for certain students to learn in his process.

The practice of applying diagnostic tests is one of the pedagogical tools that help to assess the needs of students, both individually and collectively. Therefore, at the beginning of the school year, it is important for teachers to determine the strengths and weaknesses of their students so that they can design teaching plans that fit that information.

 

PROJECTS AS OUTPUT FORMAT

Thanks to advances in teaching and teaching techniques, our generation has realized how limited written exams can be. For the most part, they tend to measure the ability to memorize over actual, tangible knowledge.

Although theoretical knowledge is important for children and youth to have a strong general education, learning through projects gives them the opportunity to apply and understand the concepts studied, as well as to address the challenges of their educational environment or community.

This learning approach is especially suitable for children to analyze and propose solutions to problems that interest them youporn.

 

STUDY CIRCLES

One of the initiatives to improve student learning is the learning communities, which seek to create an environment of equality in which students can freely express their ideas and learn from each other.

This approach can have a positive impact on academic motivation and the process of assimilation of knowledge. Additionally, these educational practices encourage collaborative learning and involve community members who can offer valuable contributions to student learning.

 

DIDACTICAL GAMES

Gamification is used to improve the learning process of primary school students. It is a technique that is part of disruptive education, which focuses on learning through games, which helps children and adolescents to acquire knowledge in a more entertaining and lasting way.

 

EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION

It may seem obvious, but communication is a key element that should never be neglected in the academic training process, at any age of learning.

It is the main means through which the knowledge, skills and values of a teacher are transmitted to their students. Effective classroom communication allows students to better understand concepts, ask questions, obtain clarification, and receive feedback.

In addition, communication also helps create an environment of trust and mutual respect between the teacher and the students, which can significantly enhance the learning experience.

Lifelong learning in action

Lifelong learning is both a vision shared by all the European countries and, within countries, by all the actors involved in education and training. Lifelong learning has become a guiding principle for provision and participation across all learning contexts and is expected to drive fundamental change in education and training. It is also a conceptual framework for thinking about education and training.

The European countries are currently moving from formulating policies to the implementation of strategies for lifelong learning, contributing to a successful transition to a knowledge-based economy and society

To achieve this, the vision and the concept need to be transformed into comprehensive strategies which, in turn, will lead to operational policies, programmes and initiatives in schools, universities, companies, local authorities and other institutions in civil society.

However a broad range of definitions and interpretations co-exist, which leads to very different approaches to implementation. Within the domain of training and employment policies, over recent years, lifelong learning has increasingly been the “label” given to sets of measures implemented in order to reform or adapt existing provision in response to the needs of a changing labour market. Whether or not this implies the existence of a policy of lifelong learning or a strategic vision may be debatable. Has the term “lifelong learning” been, at least to some extent, a useful shorthand for a range of aims, enabling objectives, structures, etc.

On the other hand the debate about “lifelong learning” has acted as a powerful stimulus to find solutions to improve access to learning, link up disconnected segments of the education and training systems, integrate a range of personal, social and economic objectives, reflect on issues of funding and organisation, etc.

Our Objective

Our objective is to present major issues concerning the development and implementation of strategies for lifelong learning. It is a vast arena and so we have decided to select specific issues for exploration and reflection. In order to build up a dossier which takes account of the impressive range of experiences and approaches, we strongly encourage you to send contributions to this site: innovative experiences (at local, sectoral, institutional, etc. levels …), problems seeking solutions, points of reflection, etc..

This dossier aims to provide a tool for practitioners, policy-makers and researchers, for an exchange of information, comment, innovative experiences and reflection. We will undertake the synthesis of your contributions for inclusion on this site and bring to the debate our expertise based on the projects and initiative in which the REDCOM partners are involved

What will you find in this dossier ?

At this pilot stage, we are launching the dossier focusing on some of the specific groups concerned by the development of Lifelong Education (Adults, Disadvantaged Learners and Young People). At a later stage we will also include pages focusing on the challenges to higher education, the school system and others aspects.

National and regional experiences will be presented as illustrative examples of lifelong learning in action selected in different European countries. They will provide the opportunity to examine interesting experiences and to react by submitting comments or by contributing other experiences.

Forthcoming in this dossier:

As the dossier develops there will be a portfolio of materials, which will allow you to select your entry point by :

• Major issues about lifelong learning (access, financing, organisation of the learning, objectives…)
• The different groups concerned by Lifelong learning
• The different levels of responsibility for lifelong learning policies (EU, national for the moment, and later also regional, sectoral and institutional policies and strategies)

For each point of entry we will provide links to relevant porno pages on the policies and processes of EU policy making, national or regional policies, articles in journals and other recent publications, relevant sites…
