Module 1. Teacher – guide

How to make school an encouraging environment that supports students in enhancing their potential?

Some people look for answers in a different definition of the teacher in the learning process. Under such an approach, the teacher is not the only one to communicate knowledge. Instead, he/she should focus on supporting children in their individual work, helping them pursue their passions and discover the world. The teacher should act as a guide, an advisor, a mentor or a coach.

Today’s world and labour market is about people who are critical thinkers, who are autonomous and responsible. Teachers are therefore faced with the challenge of fostering empathy, effective communication skills, creativity and openness to other points of view among students.
