Educational workshop experiences

For children and elementary and middle school students

Today’s society is complex and its social values are constantly called into question. In these complex circumstances school is required to be flexible and to swiftly answer parents’ questions and doubts, to face society’s constant changes, and to provide students with the most useful tools to face new social challenges.
These projects offered by Kirikù offer an effective educational approach which, through prevention, operates for the wellbeing of children and students.

The workshops that we make available are not “final packages”. These themes, in fact, can be explored through different activities according to various needs of each class, the age of children and students. Every educational path is “personalised” and teachers have a fundamental role in pinpointing needs and characteristics of the class. This is why, before each path, we get informed on said characteristics allowing the educators to better calibrate specific activities and work on the efficacy of workshops.

Lastly it’s also important to adjust the contents according to the educational paths already undergone by the class (in particular projects focusing on emotions, empathy, and listening).

The general goals of the educational workshops that we offer are:
Support children and students on their growth journey as they build their identity;
Promote the construction of relationships among children and students and their inclusion in the class context;
Foster the development of critical thinking in everyone;
“Learning by doing” starting from everyone’s personal living experiences;
Encourage learning through alternative methods (to which each teacher’s methods are added) to help bring out the many “intelligences” of the child and the student.

Path’s assessment
At the end of each workshop we will spare some time to assess the path taken by the children and students in class.

The majority of our paths are made up of 3 weekly meetings, lasting 1½ – 2 hours each. In some schools, according to the educational theme, we’ve experimented with a format lasting a whole morning (it’s also interesting to pair it with trips and walks). To be more effective, the cooperative offers to schedule workshops in the morning during school hours.
