about the innovation

Let´s talk about children - Mind the Gap

What we do?  

Through Let´s talk about children Method teachers can be helped to face the reality that pupils are living outside the school. There is too often a gap between pupils and teachers. The teachers are not aware enough of the "strengths" and "vulnerabilities"  in pupils lives. Especially teachers could have more information of hidden competences that could be used in classroom helping pupils to get through school and challanges in their lives generally.

Why we do it? 

There are too many dropouts in our school system and difficulties in school engagement that things must be changed.  Let´s talk about children discussion is a research based method through which good results can be reached. We are working to change the attitudes of teachers to understand how important comprehensive understanding of pupils and families is for studying. We teachers are for pupils and families - asking; " What can we do to help you to find you way in this school system? How can we help you to find your way in this life? " We teachers are here to help not judging.
