The CONECTed project wants to place a special focus on the so-called “depopulated Spain”, since the online educational space is ideal to respond to the enormous challenges that rural centers present.
In rural education, there is a high rate of early school leaving due to the limited diversity of training offer, which forces the child and youth population to move to educational centers that are in an urban environment; excluding the most vulnerable students due to the economic effort that it implies to families, and the associated problems of family uprooting and their place of origin.
This project aims to promote an educational intervention model that generates improvements in the processes and procedures in the centers through capacity building, access to digital educational equipment and tools, the promotion of innovative learning methodologies, the Education for global citizenship approach, so that they can be integrated, in the medium term, in their educational project successfully.
The specific actions included within the project are:
- Comprehensive support measures to guarantee educational inclusion and school success for students: School meals, educational material, quality educational leisure and psychosocial care.
- Measures to support the digitization of educational communities: Infrastructure, leadership and governance practices, teaching / learning practices, professional development of teaching and non-teaching staff and families, assessment practices, educational content and curriculum, and collaboration and work in network.
- Support for the development of STEAM skills: Digital literacy for social and labor inclusion, digital skills in primary, secondary and home and artistic disciplines (Music, radio, theater and transformative art in formal and non-formal spaces).
Who will benefit?
The project will allow more than 650 boys and girls from at least 5 schools in rural areas in Spain to meet their educational needs during the 20/21 academic year and the first quarter of 21/22.
Reduce the educational and digital gap in rural areas, for the benefit of children and families who suffer the consequences of living in the so-called depopulated Spain, and who feel disconnected from the rest.
