This toolkit for teachers aims to facilitate democratic learning by introducing education mechanisms to prevent and combat violence, extremism, xenophobia, discrimination and intolerance. It is designed to facilitate cooperation between countries, to mobilise joint efforts to resolve common problems, and to promote experience-sharing practices.
The toolkit covers research that analyses the existing situation, with respect to educational achievements and teaching methods, to help students develop the skills and competences required to live in a democratic society.
Using established methods of collecting, analysing and evaluating information, the toolkit aims to empower teachers with the knowledge and skills to work in an environment influenced by media and social networks, providing them with an in–service training programme and the methodological tools needed for students to critically evaluate media and social network information.
