Many initiatives are being taken all around the world to achieve more responsible ways of living in relation to our own lives, the lives of others and the natural environment. Our present challenge is to identify which policies and practices best facilitate education for sustainable living, what lessons can be learned from these initiatives already being carried out in different countries, and how to recreate them in other contexts.
This toolkit is structured in three main parts. The first part represents the introducation to the toolkit and it provides a background on education for responsible and sustainable living, as well as the learning methodology employed and the learning objectives targeted in this toolkit. The second part provides brief introduction on how to use this learning toolkit and the activities contained within. The third part contains the primary materials of this toolkit.
The Power of Media: Responsible and Sustainable Living. Images and Objects Active Methodology Toolkit 6
This toolkit focuses on using different media as a key teaching and learning strategy to explore themes related to responsible living and sustainable development. It presents background information on Education for Responsible and Sustainable Living and Multiple Intelligence theory and provides a range of active teaching and learning activities using different media.
The toolkit focuses on STORYTELLING as a key teaching and learning strategy, to explore themes related to responsible living and sustainable development. The toolkit includes background information on education for responsible and sustainable living, the Millennium Development Goals (MDG's) and storytelling as an active learning methodology.
The toolkit focuses on using a range of active teaching and learning approaches and strategies to explore the themes of:
- the inter-relationship between environmental, economic, social and political resources in everyday life
- time as a resource and the ability to think of the future
- critical analysis, planning and decision making in determining personal action
The toolkit is designed to support and encourage teachers, tutors and lecturers to integrate some of the concepts of sustainable development into teaching and learning. It focuses in particular on using photographs and a range of active teaching and learning approaches and strategies to explore the themes of:
- personal consumption
- climate change
This toolkit aims to promote financial literacy. It provides background information on financial education, as well as an original card game which can be used in various ways.
The toolkit is designed to support educators, teachers and organisations who would like to run seminars and workshops on themes related to personal finance.
This resource builds on the already well documented use of images and photographs in education. It is a compilation of ideas generated through piloting with both formal and non formal educators. The Toolkit might provide a "quick start" for teachers/facilitators who would like to use a visual approach to exploring aspects of Sustainable Development in their teaching and learning environment.
This brohure is the fourth in a series that focuses on education for sustainable living in formal education systems as well as informal education and provides descriptions of three successful methodologies used around the world. These are:
1. Learning using values-based indicators
2. Active Learning using images and Objects
3. Learning through social innovation, Looking for Likely Alternatives (LOLA)
