VOICE

Lifelong learning and civic competencies are essential for each individual in modern, knowledge-based, democratic societies. As dispositions of learning-to-learn skills and active citizenship shape up in childhood and adolescence, schools can make a significant contribution to the enhancement of social and civic competencies as well as to learning-to-learn skills.

Educational experts and practitioners from Austria, Estonia, Germany, Slovenia and Turkey are collaborating in the VOICE project in order to contribute to improving educational practice in civic education.

The project aims to address this issue by developing problem-based learning materials for secondary school pupils and a teacher training course on skills and background knowledge for implementation of competence-oriented civic education. The problem-based learning modules for secondary school classes on the topics Democracy, Europe, Human Rights and migration AND with focus on enhancement of social, civic and learning-to-learn competencies. In addtition, a teacher trainings course featuring necessary skills and background knowledge for implementing competence-oriented civic education will be developed.
