The first seminar took place between 23rd and 27th of October and consisted in creating drawings on paper, which were proposed and elaborated by Betty Edwards in her book “Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain” (1979). The main purpose of the drawing approach in this seminar was to explore the potential of participants to later apply new perceptual skills – in thinking and problem solving in general and especially those generated by the limitations encountered in designing and developing the educational process in the digital environment.
The second seminary took place between 10-14 December 2021 and allowed 30 youth worker from Roumania, Greek and Spain to share opinions about digital education and online tools to make it more interesting and funnier for students. As well it was intoduced Kinsugi concept ( the process of repairing ceramics traditionally with lacquer and gold, leaving a gold seam where the cracks were. The technique consists in joining fragments and giving them a new, more refined aspect).
The third seminary took place between 18-27 February and allowed 30 youth workers from Romania, Greek and Spain to analyze and debate about the different digital teaching methods and the importance of digital competences. As well, we get the opportunity to compare the education system from different countries and to prepare same pilot classes based on the theory of multiple intelligence.
