Primary and Pre-primary Education

WHAT DO WE DO?

The EDC-Pri organization focuses on examining the forces influencing Teacher Education in a digitally globalized, plurilingual, and intercultural world, and how they have already changed some traditional notions about the purpose of education. Some of the activities and opportunities for networking and promoting interactive projects in this RDC include:

  • Performing and disseminating research
  • Developing professional and personal skills
  • Promoting transformational  leadership in education
  • Facilitating organizational innovation to grow into digitally globalized paradigms

 

WHO ARE WE?

The Research and Development Community for Primary and Pre-Primary (RDC-Pri)  is the professional section of the #ATEE that examines how Teacher Education (TE) should be adapted to fit the emergent social needs that have placed Primary and Pre-primary education in an increasingly complex context. Members of ATEE are invited to participate in all the RDC-Pri activities, contact the RDC-Pri Co-Chairs and participants with new ideas and suggestions, and disseminate the RDC-Pri principles of participatory high quality research in an international interactive environment through professional networking.

HOW DO WE DO IT?

In 2016, the RDC-Pri collectively explored the interests of participants and consolidated a list of content to be prioritized, based on a connectivist vision of the future of Teacher Education in Primary and Pre-primary education. The community has decided several global fields of action to achieve that vision, through open debate on goals, procedures and relationships in education. During the present chairing period, social media channels are used to propose, exchange, and collaborate in research projects with other colleagues all over the world.
