material & activities
A variety of blended training material and activities on the core concepts and methodologies in the SMOOTH project was performed by partners together with third parties during the period 1st November 2021 – 28th February 2022. The material and the activities are part of WP3 “Introducing educational commons and designing case studies” that aims to:
a) create learning material on the educational commons’ values and practices, a pedagogy of listening, pedagogical documentation, and project-work,
b) support training on educational commons’ values and practices, a pedagogy of listening, pedagogical documentation, and project-work,
c) design case studies following the idea of educational commons.
The training follows core concepts and methodologies: the commons, educational commons and conflict resolution, P2P governance and peer learning, a pedagogy of listening, pedagogical documentation, and project-work. The specific objective and function of this activity is to present, organise and operationalise training material and activities that will allow partners and third parties to engage in training on how to:
a) create smooth peer learning and governance spaces, such as a children’s assembly,
b) together with children and youth develop a collective research theme – e.g. children’s or youth’s sense of social and physical space,
c) exert the tools of a pedagogy of listening, pedagogical documentation and project-work,
d) develop pedagogical, personal and social skills, such as active listening and conflict resolution.
The training was effectuated both synchronously (live-streamed through zoom) and a-synchronously (partners and third parties effectuate training together at their own convenience) through the Open Educational Resources e-Platform, accessible here:
