WP2.1 (Comparative analysis)
This European report compares the different experience of C.A.R.E partner countries in promoting ceramics in both educational and professional contexts. Ceramics is an old craft of great artistic and cultural value, and it has a lot of benefits for the learners. In fact, ceramic processing has both benefits for people’s physical health (e.g. it improves posture and ergonomics, it develops the touch, etc.) but also for psychological health, as it allows individuals to cooperate and foster team building.
WP2.3 (Handbook with the non-formal activities)
The handbook of non-formal educational activities provides educators and teachers with concrete ideas of group activities to promote cooperation among youngsters, counteracting social exclusion and valuing diversity within the group. These activities can be used for team building, to create the sense of belonging to a group. They can therefore be used at the start of ceramic workshops with both visually impaired (V.I) and not-visually impaired young people, in order to encourage collaboration as a key element for the success of the learning experience for all youngsters.
