The 32-month project “Schools joining up for Communities of Peace” is aimed at both teachers and students:
Teachers explore innovative possibilities of teaching Peace Education (digitally); students learn about new opportunities for (digital) participation in a globalized society; the participants of both target groups see themselves as peacemakers and work as multipliers for a peaceful coexistence.
Thereby the focus is on the development of two products:
The “EduMaP” (Education makes Peace!), an (initially European) online map, enables digital, interactive journeys to places of peace and conflict that can be viewed in 360-degree images. Photos, videos, audios and texts provide in-depth insights; tasks, quiz questions and mini-games encourage reflection. The “Actionbound” application will be used for the technical implementation.
The handbook “Experiencing European Peace and Conflicts with Students! supports teachers in addressing the topic of Peace Education using digital tools and in applying the “EduMaP” in teaching.
