Partners publish first TECCHED videos

TECCHED is an Erasmus Plus project that aims to design and implement a technology-enhanced global climate change curriculum for teacher education programs that fosters the development of character and values.

In order to achieve this, TECCHED has;

– designed and started to implement a technology-enhanced climate change curriculum in partner universdities. The purpose is to raise awareness in teacher education programs of the importance of fighting against climate change. The curriculum seeks to foster the development of skills and values for responsible and active citizenship.tecched video image

– produced resources in an interactive e-book that helps teach scientific knowledge about climate change and which foster ‘character and values’ development of student teachers regarding climate change. This is supported by appropriate pedagogical approaches and valuable tools and technologies through a technology cataloguue.

– design the curriculum for technology-enhanced teaching of climate change that fosters character and values development in education faculties,

The ‘character and values’ help individuals to make responsible decisions about global socio-scientific issues such as climate change. They include developing an ecological worldview (humans are embedded in the environment), socio-scientific accountability by taking socio political actions, social and moral compassion (feeling empathy and respect for others.

The work of partners has been highlighted by short videos of the work of partners in meetings and sessions with staff and students. Go to the videos

Technology tools for teaching about climate

toolkit imageAs part of the TECCHED Project, partners have researched, selected and assessed a large number of technology tools useful for teacher training and teaching in secondary schools. Twenty seven tools of these tools were selected for further analysis and review.

The tools were then classified as either generic or climate-specific. The reviews of these tools have been catalogued and are published on the TECCHED Web site as part of the Learning Platform.

The climate-specific tools include information sites, apps and Web sites with climate data and dashboards, climate games and simulations.
