Potential for Life: evaluation meeting and multiplier event

The pilot phase of “Potential for Life” is slowly coming to and end. This new project was designed to give an answer to the growing challenge of disengagement in education and early school leaving. Through the metaphor of a journey, students experience activities that enable them to discover their own and others’ ways of learning (metacognitive abilities), support their feeling of being empowered to better participate in their learning paths and environments, and ultimately contributes to (re)gain their love for learning (motivation, self-determination and resilience).
