Bullying is a word that is heard more and more often nowadays. School bullying has become an epidemic in our society and this fact has emerged a variety of studies across Europe aiming at investigating this rapidly spreading problem. To deal with bullying and to ensure a safe, learning environment the orchestrated contribution of all stakeholders of school education is necessary. School teachers and principals are the first who come across bullying in the school environment, most of the times publicly. Parents have to deal with it at home. Regional educational authorities, school consultants and parent associations are involved under regulatory and consultation roles. Even the educators and trainers of teachers are involved, as they are responsible for helping them acquire the skills and competences to deal with bullying before they enter the school environment, as well as to ensure that their competences remain up to date. In this framework, it is clear that dealing with bullying is not a simple one-off procedure. Instead, it requires the aggressive and continuous use of modern educational means and the close collaboration of all involved stakeholders. In the proposed project, we propose to combine modern pedagogical approaches (eLearning and peer learning) with widely used technological means (Internet, social networking, mobiles) in order to provide timely and continuous support to the entire community of stakeholders in dealing with school bullying. The project main objective is to design, create, implement and evaluate a training platform that will provide teachers, teacher trainers, and all other stakeholders’ access to accredited training material on school bullying, as well as the means to publish their experiences and to comment and tag the experience of their peers. The training platform will provide the means to: • Receive accredited initial guided online training • Access a repository of certified online digital training material • Upload experience and best practice in the form of episodes • Present opinion and foster discussions using blogs and forums • Collaboratively develop training content and scenarios using wikis • Index all types of content using tags • Quickly access specific “first aid” content via tags and mobile devices • Create discussion and special interest groups and establish communities of practice The teachers and teacher trainers will be trained in: • Using the platform and the assorted social networking tools • Creation of educational scenarios and digital content based on peer learning and crowd sourcing methodologies • Uploading best practice and providing comments and advice to peers (thus becoming themselves trainers) The Expected results of the project are: • A collection of best practices addressed to bullying, legal framework, real life cases • A Peer learning methodology for dealing with school bullying • Learning objects using crowdsourcing on school bullying • A social networking peer learning platform which will offer at least the following tools: Blog; Forum; Wikis; Tag cloud • A Guide on future exploitation and viability • The Main Activities of the project are: • Collection of best practices, school bullying literature legislation framework, real life cases • Definition of skills and competences required to deal with bullying • Specification of learning outcomes and assessment criteria • Design of peer learning methodology • Training of learners in using the methodology and the platform • Initial education digital content for the scenarios • Design and implementation of the peer learning a platform • Pilot testing of the platform and of educational scenarios The involver Target groups are: • Teachers; • Teachers’ educators and trainers ; • School principals, counsellors and psychologists; • Parents; • Parent associations; • Regional and local educational authorities; The Partnership consists of: HOU is the sole Greek State University that provides distance adult education in both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, by heavily relying on ICT and social networking tools INFOREF is a non-profit association of teachers, technical and educational experts offering services to primary and secondary schools as well as to adult education CTI has significant past experience in the design and development of advanced e-learning educational training platforms and repositories as well as in the effective customization of social networking tools FMD is a is a private Foundation with non-profit legal personality having as a mission to promote the sharing of human knowledge, social inclusion and innovation with particular orientation towards both the school world and the categories at greater risk of exclusion .
