The Directorate for Learning and Assessment Programmes and CEER (Centre for Environmental Education Research) would like to draw educators’ attention to a new online platform, namely Our Planet, Our Future. A link to this platform will be available on https://teleskola.mt/initiatives/. Created by the European Commission’s Directorate General for Climate Action, this platform can support students to understand the causes and impacts of climate change while providing solutions towards a climate-friendly society. The information, activities and interactive resources found within this platform can support educators to facilitate dynamic and cross-curricular learning experiences that promote the acquisition of skills and competences including, research, inquiry, collaborative learning and creative problem solving.
Climate change is one of the greatest challenges that the world is facing today. Around the world, young people have been raising their voices and taking action to fight climate change. Therefore, it is important to introduce this energy into schools and empower students to act as catalysts for a better future. Further information about this platform can be sought directly through CLIMA-YOUTH-CLIMATEACTION@ec.europa.eu. Schools wishing more information about educator training in Education for Sustainable Development and Global Education can contact Mr Francesco Debono on email@example.com.
L-Investigaturi tal-Mużika – part of the MPO’s continuous efforts to bring music closer to younger audiences – is an edutainment series of 15-minutes episodes delving into aspects of orchestral music.
Introducing Allegra and Strauss, the two inquisitive young investigators seek to discover this genre through a number of set missions forwarded to them by ‘the expert’. Their adventures cover a wide range of subjects: composers, instruments, techniques, and genres amongst others.
Allegra and Strauss meet The Scientist, who explains to them scientific principals involved in creating and listening to music.
This project is presented in collaboration with The Ministry of Education
