Raising awareness for school well-being: Training primary and secondary teachers how to monitor emotional wellbeing, social inclusion and academic self-concept of students

Objectives: What do you want to achieve by implementing the project?

The project aims to support teachers’ awareness and skills to promote students’ well-being in inclusive schools. Teachers are supported to expand their ability to assess and promote well-being of their students (8-12 years old). Furthermore, the project contributes to enhancing ICT-skills of teachers by supporting them to use open educational resources in the context of school well-being. Finally, the project aims to supporting students who are at risk or with low levels of well-being in school.

Implementation: What activities are you going to implement?

In order to reach these objectives, the SO-WELL-AWARE package will be developed, including an easy-to-use online assessment tool that is accompanied with an online manual and a training package, containing knowledge on the relevance of school well-being as well as methods and material to promote students’ well-being in class. The assessment tool with its manual and the promotion package will be introduced in the context of a theoretically sound, highly field-oriented teacher training program.

Results: What project results and other outcomes do you expect your project to have?

The SO-WELL-AWARE package is designed as a sustainable OER output for teachers across Europe and other countries worldwide, who want to assess and promote students’ school well-being in their classes. It includes the online assessment tool accompanied by a manual and the promotion package. After the project end, the materials will be available open access in English, Finnish, French, German and Portuguese on the Project Website. Hence, numerous teachers from all over the world can then benefit from it.
