Thursday 8 September, the INDIRE research group is in Piacenza to participate in the “Reimaging” event with an intervention relating to the European Horizon project MenSi on Mentoring in the professional development of teachers and didactic innovation. The researchers Silvia Panzavolta and Paola Nencioni will lead the laboratory.
MenSi is coordinated by EUN and involves 120 schools from six European countries (Belgium-Flanders, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy and Portugal). Each country has built a community of practice involving Mentor Schools and Mentee Schools. INDRE has been involved in creating 4 clusters on the national territory (Emilia Romagna, Campania, Puglia and Sicily) by enhancing some of the schools of the educational avant-garde movements and the Small Schools. Mentor schools have the task of accompanying and supporting the Mentee schools of their territory (on a regional basis) in the phase of experimentation and consolidation of educational and organizational models enhanced by digital technologies.
At the end of the project, the MenSi network will open up to other institutions interested in applying school mentoring approaches to develop innovative pedagogical practices that involve digital technologies in teaching and learning.
