Recently we are working on an education innovation platform. The idea is to activate youths and high school and higher education level students, using education innovation to promote the development of the knowledge, skills, understanding, values and actions required to create a sustainable world, which ensures environmental protection and conservation, promotes social equity and encourages economic sustainability. It takes on the Open Society Open School's concept, by providing a more engaging environment for learning and makes a vital contribution to the community: student projects meet real needs in the community outside school and draw upon local expertise and experience. And finally: learning in and together with the real world creates more meaning and more motivation for learners and teachers.
Our work revolves in co-strategizing and execution of the communication for a new global (and local) platform tool aimed at advancing partnerships that deliver on five focal sustainable development goals: education, climate action, sustainable cities, reduce inequality within and among countries and the circular economy.
Engage with key government and private sector partners, educators, schools and youth communities. The word of the project name 'Proovikivi' means 'touchstone' in English, but in Estonian 'Challenges'. It was formerly 'GTL Lab'. It uses "Project-based learning" which is a student-centred pedagogy that involves a dynamic classroom approach in which it is believed that students acquire a deeper knowledge through active exploration of real-world challenges and problems.
Besides these activities, UXSCOOPS is also focusing on the eLearning sector. The CARe Network is very much supportive of two other new eLearning programmes:
UNCRPD e-Course. The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities is an international human rights treaty of the United Nations intended to protect the rights and dignity of people with disabilities.
The other course is NGO Social Media e-Course which is also an eLearning programme. We really support these great e-courses as other than the useful course content, it is a paperless way of learning, it protects the environment to a lot of extent As per a study done on eLearning courses, it has been found that distance-based learning programs consumed around 90% less power and generated 85% less amount of CO2 emissions as compared to traditional campus-based educational courses. #sustainability#sdg#elearning#digitalmarketing#nonprofit#edtech
