Participant:  Ms. Jayalakshmi
Venue: The Lalit Hotel, New Delhi
 
Ms. Jayalakshmi attended a four day workshop conducted by UNESCO MGIEP to help schools launch either of the two programs i.e. DICE and LIBRE developed by UNESCO in association with Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Education of Peace and Sustainable Development (MGIEP).
DICE is an ICT-based intercultural exchange project that connects children ages 12-15 and their teachers from around the globe. Students engage in dialogue with their international peers to enhance intercultural competencies such as perspective taking, respect for other cultures, openness, collaboration and intercultural communication.
UNESCO MGIEP’s flagship and indigenously designed programme Libre, is focused on designing a curriculum for ‘Social-Emotional Learning (SEL)’. Traditional teaching approaches are linear, and are focused on building intellectual skills of literacy and numeracy. Recent neuroscience research shows, however, that students need to be aware and emotionally connected before they can learn much of anything. That’s how social and emotional learning enhances all learning.
Teachers also learnt to use and create lessons using CHI.BUZZ, a digital learning platform.  Workshop was conducted at Hotel Lalit from 15 April 2019 to 18 April 2019 and was attended by teachers of four countries namely-India, South Africa, Sri Lanka and Bhutan.
Workshop was conducted by many facilitators from MGIEP. Science of Learning - Why Social and Emotional Learning is important for your Students was conducted by Nandini Chatterjee Singh. Introduction to CHI, MGIEP’s digital learning platform was conducted by Devesh Kumar & Saurabh Roy. Introduction to Phase -III DICE programme was conducted by Aditi Pathak & Akash Saini and Engaging with the LIBRE framework was conducted by Renuka Rautela & Mahima Bhalla.
