service-learning

[spain]

Service-learning is an educational approach that combines learning objectives with community service in order to provide a pragmatic, progressive learning experience while meeting societal needs.
Service-learning involves students in service projects to apply classroom learning for local agencies that exist to effect positive change in the community, in our project well focus on developing emotional learning and inclusion with kids from three to six.

In this module, students will have the chance to improve their professional skills, by designing an intervention project which will be implemented in an actual school, with real students and teachers. They will learn how to assess the needs in an educational institution, and how to use their professional tools to improve the situation.

Students will work with concepts related to emotional intelligence – how to read and express emotions, feelings and sensations. This is an important tool for developing their future jobs educating children.

Special educational needs will also be considered in this learning module, providing students the unique experience of meeting and improving their skills to face every situation they can find in their professional career.

To achieve the goals of our module, students will attend classes to set the main objectives of the project that they are going to develop. They will set the goals and the methods to achieve them, cooperating and providing their cultural tools and personal point of view.
On a second step, they will apply the project in a real school, giving them the chance to coordinate and lead a pre-primary school class, organizing different games and activities related to emotional intelligence.
