International Master Class on EDUPRIS Methodology
We know the brain learns from experience. Giving youth the chance to win during games allows them the opportunity to feel a sense of accomplishment, learn how to be a good winner, and even feel joy. Perhaps more importantly, by giving youth a chance to lose during game playing and then recover, games are proactively helping build emotional resilience. How else to learn to regulate our emotions, but through practice? And that’s critical for youth who’ve endured trauma and are learning to gain control of their emotions. Game-based learning embeds social and emotional skills into academic content.
This training ’The Thoughtful Teacher’ – EDUPRIS Methodology was designed to offer insights and practical lessons into the importance of using games while educating justice-involved youth. As juveniles who may be distanced from the engagement of learning, we bring them closer to educational opportunities through games and seek to connect amidst play.Download ’The Thoughtful Teacher’ – EDUPRIS Methodology - English .pdf file Download ’The Thoughtful Teacher’ – EDUPRIS Methodology - Romanian .pdf file Download ’The Thoughtful Teacher’ – EDUPRIS Methodology - Italian .pdf file Download ’The Thoughtful Teacher’ – EDUPRIS Methodology - Polish .pdf file Download ’The Thoughtful Teacher’ – EDUPRIS Methodology - Portuguese .pdf file
Training Toolbox, practical side of EDUPRIS Methodology
Two out of every three young inmates enter prison without having completed high school, and the rate of illiteracy and learning disabilities for these prisoners is more than three times higher than in the general population (Beaudry et al., 2021; Wolf-Harlow, 2003). Prison-based education programming generally focuses on helping inmates earn a secondary or vocational degree. Prison-educators must react to a large level of complex issues in order to assess prisoners’ needs and teach within the prison-environment. This is difficult even when using robust and recognized instruments. In this context, the EDUPRIS partnership, through participatory work of practitioners and young persons in the juvenil justice, developed a support materials game -based, with a board game, a teacher manual and a learner handbook. They are destined to bring all parts closed to learning and share experiences.
National Structured Public Hearings of the state of education and lifelong learning pathways for minors and youngsters interacting with the criminal correctional justice
Throughout 2022 the EDUPRIS partnership organized a series of structured public hearings in the partner countries ment to coalieze interested stakeholders on the topic of juvenile justice and develop interest into supporting EDUPRIS. The topics were related to compulsory education in juvenile justice and why it seed a special approach. Learners in justice environment are frequently distinguished by a wide range of individual requirements that necessitate a larger degree of differentiated interventions than wouldn’t otherwise be required in regular education institutions. Individual learning discontinuity and fluctuating attendance rates are instances of pedagogical issues. Students in juvenile justice settings are categorised as having emotional disturbances in close to 80% of cases.
Managing the ’emotional load,’ that the students bring to class, impacts both learner and teacher, and the ’emotional environment’ in the juvenile justice classroom is a crucial element affecting teaching and learning.Download National Structured Public Hearings .pdf file
European Policy Working Group on Education and Juvenile Justice
The EDUPRIS project organized a conference on 22nd and 23rd February 2023, bringing together stakeholders and experts in the field of juvenile justice from across Europe. The conference aimed to address the complex challenges and issues surrounding education in the juvenile justice system, with a focus on promoting evidence-based policy reforms and improving the experiences of children and youth involved in the system.
The working group activity highlighted the lack of a unified European juvenile justice system, emphasizing the need for a comprehensive approach to address the diverse policy, practice, and funding landscape that exists at state and local levels. The involvement of various decision-makers and service providers further complicates the system, requiring collaborative efforts at both the state and local levels to bring about meaningful reform.
Key stakeholders, including professionals from the fields of education, welfare, health, justice, and community, were actively engaged in the EDUPRIS project. Their involvement was crucial in recognizing the importance of collecting and sharing data transparently, as well as establishing effective communication channels.Download Edupris Cross-system collaboration in Juvenile Justice .pdf file
