THE TOTAL GREEN WAVE IN VET PEDAGOGICAL AND DIDACTICAL MODEL

You can reach the hart of students so they get the desire and motivation to become more sustainability minded looking at the SDG’s by providing attractive and challenging tasks for the head and the hands.

Reach the hart through the hands and the head.

More in depth our total pedagogical and didactical model created by the university of Bari advises the following

It is about practical (hands), intellectual (head) and emotional (heart) aspects.


CRITICAL THINKING-BRAIN
1. Let students think about how global issues are related to your students’ local community.

2. Think with your students about what challenges the SDG’s represent for them.

3. Formulate with your students the relationship of potential problems relating
to the SDG’s with their own local community.
                                          

VALUES-HEART
1. Help your students to reflect on their personal values related to the SDG’s and sustainability.

2. Help your students to learn about equity and justice around sustainability.

3. Help your students to relate to a healthy and resilient ecosystem.

ACTION-HAND
1. Provide tasks so students are elicited to think about sustainable solutions, materials, processes and products.

2. Help your students to adopt a relational way of thinking and to create new ideas.

3. Help your students to think about demanding and promoting effective
political action towards sustainability.
