Educational forum "Out of frame: Influence in the New Time" was emotional and experienced

Some of the youth workers of the Centre presented for the first time the handbook of the digital media literacy program "Youths (re)act" – what are its educational goals, philosophy and principles of methodology. This happened during the fifth edition of the Educational Forum "Out of frame: Influence in the New Time". The event was held on June 5 and included school and kindergarten principals, educators, pedagogical counselors and all with a common mission in education and working with children and young people. The handbook includes 13 topics related to the skills and competences young people in the 21st century must possess. Taking an active part in the main activity, namely "The World – a canvas of our imagination", the guests of the event became acquainted with how to use the manual themselves through the method of non-formal education.

Psychotherapist Ivan Pavlov gave each of the participants the opportunity to experience the reality of the educational process through the eyes of a parent, teacher or student through the use of a experienced method. The purpose of its seminar part was to provide different perspectives for working with children and young people in a school environment. In the course of the training, participants immersed themselves in a real situation that raised numerous questions about the hierarchy in the educational process and the problems between different age and social groups. It became clear to those present that, in addition to the visible facts, their work also implies an understanding of the invisible. Contrary to generally accepted rules for working with children and young people, participants concluded that placing excessive care on children as an end in itself does more harm to their development and provokes a desire for them to resist the surrounding authority.

The event ran in an exciting way for the participants, as no one remained indifferent. And contrary to their expectations that classes of lectures lie ahead, the forum was entirely experienced, filled with a lot of emotions and remaind you an imprint on everyone present.

Educational forum "Out of frame: Influence in the New Time" is held as part of the activities of the project "Youth Centre Plovdiv - a powerful factor for local development" under the program "Local development, poverty reduction and improved inclusion of vulnerable groups", funded by the Financial Mechanism of the European Economic Area 2014-2021.
