- Activities implemented in the project will be:
Piloting of the Training Format with the involvement of 5 teachers per country aged 25+ with at least 2 years of experience in teaching.
- Co-creation process between partners and the teachers trained through the piloting of the R1, aimed at creating new developed digital and virtual tools to be employed during lessons for a selected sample of school subjects to be included in the Toolbox R2.
- Pilot of the Toolbox and the assessment tool in which the teachers will use the tools of the Toolbox and the assessment tool during a six months period during their lessons for efficiency testing and validation of the R2 and R3.
