Working Methodology

To achieve these objectives, we offer various activities and workshops, as well as proposals for APS programs and activities related to international days, which vary depending on the educational level and the specific objectives we pursue.

Each activity begins by collecting the previous knowledge and experiences that the students have on the topic to develop it later. After a short presentation of the topic to be worked on, a specific participatory dynamic is proposed (non-competitive board game, traditional game, work with images, writing workshop, art or dance workshop, a representation, a role-playing game, etc. ) that allows students to delve deeper into the topic while having fun. Finally, the impressions and opinions of the students are collected, conclusions are drawn and a small evaluation is carried out.
