DROP’IN ACTION – Introduction

DROP’IN ACTION is an online portfolio that brings together the experience of teachers and students using non-formal techniques at school system level.

It has been developed within the DROP’IN project, an Erasmus + project (K2:  Strategic Partnership | School) that is aimed at developing strategies to prevent Early School Leaving (ESL) and school dropout by introducing non-formal methods in schools. This approach was possible thanks to a partnership between associations, municipalities, universities and schools where teachers and non-formal education experts worked together, leading innovation in each other field and collaborating at each step of the project.

The development of these non-formal methodologies comes from a study and analysis of the school system in the various countries involved (Bulgaria, France, Italy, Latvia), responding to the need to actively involve teachers and students in processes of non-formal and alternative education that can educate them on fundamental issues for the growth of both the learners and the teachers as active protagonists of their educational and human development.

What did we need to DROP’IN?

The DROP’IN project team of teachers and experts in non-formal education has produced a manual of techniques useful for the introduction of non-formal education, EDUC’Action: The Education in Action! 

It’s a catalogue of non-formal education techniques focused mainly on the following 5 main topics:

 

  • The Importance of Education and Motivation to Learn
  • Team Building and the Feeling of Equality
  • Self-esteem, self-awareness and reflection
  • Building up Your Own Environment and Taking Responsibility for It
  • Learn to Say NO!
