The Project Based Learning methodology places the student as the protagonist and allows the learning process to be fun and meaningful. It is an excellent way to contemplate the teaching of socio-emotional, cognitive and academic skills.
WHAT DIFFERENTS US?
- We combine the teaching of cognitive and socioemotional skills (life skills) with academic ones. We do this in a fun way and within the context and repertoire of the learners;
- We measure the impact directly, observing in each one the development of the proposed skills;
- We have a work team and a network of volunteers with different backgrounds and socioeconomic situations, which ensures a rich exchange of repertoire and life experiences, with impact and learning for all involved.
