It is therefore important to ask yourself how you learn. This visual presentation explains in 29 slides the theory developed by Jean-François Michel on the 7 learning profiles.

The team system, participation and empowerment

A visual presentation of 36 slides for Scouting practitioners. It shows how the team system, one of the key elements of Scouting, is often misunderstood and even perverted.

Based on quotes from the founder of Scouting, Robert Baden-Powell, but also famous psychologists and pedagogues such as Jean Piaget, Célestin Freinet, and Paulo Freire, it gives its true dimension to the team system, a tool for participation and emancipation, which places Scouting at the source of cooperative pedagogies and liberating education.

Visible Thinking

When students are taught to write or count, you can see what they are doing and what they have learned. But how can we teach students to think when thinking is invisible?

The Visible Thinking project developed by Professor David Perkins of Harvard University in the United States attempted to meet this challenge. From this we have derived a 54-page document presenting 27 "routines" to help students learn to think creatively and critically. Useful for youth workers and teachers.
