Escuelas Hermanadas por la Justicia Social
Escuelas Hermanadas por la Justicia Social is a network of schools (from early childhood education to university) that work together in, from and for Social Justice, through collaborative work with Project Based Learning (PBL).
The Network rests on three axes shared by all the centers and their educational communities:
- Reflect on the need to commit education to Social Justice. This leads us to exchange reflections and materials that help us rethink our educational practices. As a result of this, different seminars have been developed with the intention of speaking, writing, sharing and reflecting on our educational practices.
- Teacher training. Defending this project is only possible if it is supported by a solid training project that supports the leaders of change in schools: teachers. The Network is committed to a training model that adapts to the specific needs of each center and the group that makes it up. Along with the basic training on theoretical-practical aspects of education for social justice and the implementation of the project approach as a methodology to be developed, the centers decide which elements their training plan should include in each course: cooperative tools, creativity, materials didactics, evaluation, etc.
- Network. Teachers feel alone in the need to innovate in their classrooms. This must not be the case. Networking allows us to share dozens of resources, to feel that the path we are traveling is something important and to share. But also to verify that the schools can change when traveling a path together.
