FULL DESCRIPTION OF TRAINING CONTENTS
IN THE LANGUAGE OF THE TRAINING: (EN)
Approximately four weeks before start organizers will provide participants with a list of websites they should visit to see examples of teaching and learning contexts using ART in Education, along with the agenda and practical information about their participation in this course. Main information will be provided through the project website www.artined.eu.
Participants will be asked to bring with them information about their schools, region (photographs, brochures, posters), to briefly introduce where they come from, as well as to bring to the meeting the presentation of one critical case of teaching, (e.g. a difficult subject to teach). This will be analyzed during the meeting and solutions deriving by the collaborative approach of the course’s participants will be suggested.
In the preparation phase a ‘Challenge Template’ will be provided to the teachers to take note of the critical, challenging cases they want to bring to the meeting. This will help them describe the topics.
There are three main objectives for this course:
1. To introduce participants to the general value Art can have in enhancing lifelong learning opportunities for learners of every age and in all the subjects of the curricula, in particular for pre-primary and primary schools
2. To discuss and make explicit with participants, through a range of interactive and participative sessions illustrated with examples, the various pedagogical usages that Art can be put to.
3. To highlight to those interested in using Art in Education in the learning context the many online resources available ranging from online training materials and samples of good practice to repositories of video-based materials, research projects etc.
Participants will receive hands-on training on the creation of art lessons for the classroom. Participants will then be given access to methodologies and good examples to practice specific art skills to enhance learning of any curricular subject in a practical and supportive environment in the classroom.
Then, working in teams, participants will be required to conceive, plan and create a lesson plan, as well as to analyze the critical cases the participants themselves will provide form their experience. At the end of the course the teachers will have gained the skills and practical knowledge necessary to create their own lessons plan and to solve some specific difficult cases. There will be a final evaluation session, on the importance that Art can bring to the learning process.
Participants will be shown different examples of on line resources available through the ARTinED web site. To stimulate discussion and to raise issues related to quality and pedagogical value of Art, one visit is foreseen in each training session. The first will be to Prado Museum in Madrid, Spain and the second one to PINOCCHIO Park in Collodi, Tuscany, Italy.
During the course, participants will receive a set of working documents which they can rely on after the training course to use ARTinED methodology in their classroom. After completing the training participants will have the opportunity to stay in contact with the teachers of the on line community through webinars and activities mailing list.
They will have the possibility to join a webinar six weeks after the course and they can also write on the community space about their experiencethey will receive advices as to the use of ARTinED resources and community space for teaching and learning follow-up purposes.

They will be invited to join also the Facebook group which will provide participants a way more to keep in touch, exchange opinions and information among each other, the schools, and the course trainers.
