Covid-19 pandemic has stuck the regular education and training since December 2019 all over the World. To UNESCO, at the end of April 2020, educational institutions were shut down in 186 countries, affecting approximately 74% of total enrolled learners on the planet (https://en.unesco.org/covid19/educationresponse). The temporary lockdowns have changed the course of education from regular to a virtual one, resulting in the acceleration of the digital transformation which is a requirement of the 21st century, but it has been discovered during this crisis that teachers are not well-prepared to adapt themselves to the digital teaching approach. The system of online teaching should be accompanied by the needed personal development skills for managing the best way: interpersonal communication processes, empathy, creative thinking, etc.
Taking into account the aforementioned, the aim of the Project is to support primary school teachers, who are the main target group, both digitally, socially, and emotionally in response to the Covid-19 outbreak via developing modules such as “teaching new generation students in primary schools”, “managing the online class effectively” and “defining inter-personal communication processes”, “developing social and emotional behaviours” and “empathy among students in online classes”, “developing creative thinking and problem-solving skills during online courses”, using online methods, techniques and tools in primary education and developing innovatively digital versions of the courses. Each module will be enriched by digital pathway for the creation and usage of the module, content, and activities in theory and video-based, a toolbox including helpful tips/strategies and tools and the section for the assessment tools.
Under the coordination of KUTAHYA DUMLUPINAR UNIVERSITESI (Turkey) and with the partnership of the University of Salerno (Italy), WSB University in Poznan (Poland), University of Lumsa (Italy), M&M Profuture S.L. (Spain), Kütahya Provincial Directorate of Ministry of Education (Turkey) and University of Zagreb (Croacia) as an associated partner.
