For those of you who missed or would like to refresh the workshop “Social Pedagogy and communitary intervention: The social pedagogue as a promotor for lifelong learning” of Isabel Baptista and Cindy Vaz from Portugal they have been so kind to send us the slides.
Download the slides here.
Our colleagues from Portugal have been so kind to send their presentation from the congress in Luxembourg. The presentation talks about how social education emerged in Portugal and about the struggle for professional recognition and it talks about uniting the social educators in a common national organisation.
The title of the presentation is “Social Education in Portugal – Problems and Professional Recognition”.
Download the presentation here.
Please feel free to send me your presentation if you would want it to be published here.
Here are some news from our friends at Fair Start:
HOW TO EDUCATE CHILDREN IN UNDERSTANDING AND PRACTICING THEIR RIGHTS
In the free online education program for social pedagogues www.train.fairstartedu.us , we continue to create more language versions. I have also designed resource sessions for educating children in exercising their rights, in how to inform children and youth about sexuality and prevention, etc.
You can use these staff education “sessions”. The session concerning educating children in their rights can be found if you click “resources” at http://institutions.fairstartedu.us/?page_id=1874#
This is our second version of the social pedagogue training program. When tested, it will also be in Russian, Bulgarian, Polish, Latvian and Danish language versions. For more info, go to www.fairstartglobal.com
PS: For colleagues in Brazil, we have translated the texts of www.train.fairstartedu.com into Brazilian Portuguese, and the book about helping children with attachment problems is here in Portuguese: http://climepsi.pt/livros/a_crianca_abandonada
