Educreators NextGen

Posted by Cristina

The project Educreators NextGen was designed and implemented between 2021 and 2023. It aimed to empower primary and secondary school teachers with personalized and participatory learning activities combining futures literacy, futures thinking and foresight in the specific context of their own classroom.

The project started in March 2022 with methodology design and development, followed by testing and iterations through participatory workshops involving 120 representative NextGen teachers from Swiss public primary schools.

Based on three iterations cycles, an in-classroom pilot project was successfully conducted in a public primary school in Basel from May 2023 until December 2023, involving six Swiss primary school teachers and their 4th grade students.

Following a student and teacher-centered approach, the pilot tested a dynamic teaching plan with bi-weekly, easy to implement and personalized learning activities anchored in the school’s specific context. Students developed their critical thinking and gained agency in front of the unknown, raising as a result their future consciousness level.
