April 2021


In the period from 07 to 09 April 2021, TPO Foundation held three online meetings with participants of the SAPERE BIH program, within which TPO Foundation holds trainings for future trainers from P4C - Philosophy for children with the aim of integrating critical thinking as an approach to learning and teaching in high schools. The goal of our online meetings was reflection on the realized training in February and plan of the practical part of the education that the participants in the next period should realize with their students.
High school teachers from Herzegovina-Neretva Canton, Zenica-Doboj Canton and Sarajevo Canton had the opportunity to be introduced with the jamboard application, which helps to improve the online session and greatly contribute to the quality of online teaching.

The application was presented with the aim of using it in the following period, when the teachers will organize philosophical enquiries with the students within the online platform. Since the epidemiological measures do not allow work in schools in most of the cantons or work in larger groups, teachers are enabled to realize the philosophical enquiries online as a part of their homework in SAPERE BIH program. The enquiries require group interaction among participants that includes writing ideas and concepts on paper or board, and the jamboard will serve as an online tool for writing and sharing virtual notes with the rest of the session participants. Teachers shared their positive impressions on the adoption of new skills while using jamboard and in the coming period, each teacher will realize three enquiry with their students using this tool for online teaching.
