Training for Digital Platforms and Tools for Teachers held in Skopje

From 22-28 January in Skopje, the STRET TT2 (STRET.T.2 – Students Today Responsible Entrepreneurs Tomorrow – Teacher Toolkit) project partners organized the Training for Digital Platforms and Tools for Teachers. ARNO and Rade Jovceski Korcagin Gymnasium co-hosted 20 teachers and youth workers from Lithuania, Romania, Italy, and N. Macedonia eager to learn about digital competencies, platforms, and tools for the modernization of the social entrepreneurship curricula and the school`s digital competencies policies and practices.

The training was facilitated by our partner Scoala de Valori, who introduced the EU platforms, SELFIE and Digi.Comp.Edu which help with the assessment of the digital competencies of teachers and students. Scoala de Valori shared its experience as the first organization piloting these platforms in Romania, guiding the partners to develop action plans for the implementation of these platforms in their schools. Moreover, ARNO introduced several digital tools and platforms for teachers of social entrepreneurship useful for the organization of interactive and digital-friendly classes and extracurricular activities such as Canva, ChatGPT, Slack, Mentimeter, and others. The partners practiced practical usage of these tools in the context of teaching social entrepreneurship and philanthropy in classrooms.

The participants visited several social enterprises as well. Kopche (Button), a social enterprise of the Red Cross of Macedonia that sells second-hand clothing and donates clothing for people in need; Lice v Lice (Face to Face) street magazine is one of the oldest and most successful social enterprises is employing marginalized citizens as street vendors and integrates them to the labor market; and finally, the Center for Social Enterprises who together with ARNO is one of the biggest supporters and actors in the social enterprise ecosystem in N.
