ARISBAE was born when a group of European teachers, after meeting and checking their common interests in reversing the current situation of adult education in their respective countries, decided to join together to achieve common goals.
Previously it had been found that problems in their respective countries were similar and the work each partner performed separately towards this improvement was complementary. This association was established under the aim of improving the educational process in adult education through: progressing in teacher training, stopping school failure through a new met-hodology, and driving improvements overlooking the insertion both in the working and social world, especially in disadvantaged groups.
With this transnational proposal we will provide: a methodological change in the teaching-learning process of adults; to know and provide solutions to address the real causes of failure and dropout at this level; an adult training according to the times we are living, to promote the use of ICT, language and integration into society for disadvantaged people.
All this will be produced in order to create synergies to foster relationships between different areas: starting from results of school life we pretend to connect them with teacher training, research, continuing education, employment and social inclusion, in order to propose those results to different administrations, as the final aim.
The association has proven that most of the problems adult European students currently have, are based on deficiencies in understanding and expression aspects, both oral and written, and this fact has a huge impact on performance in all other areas and therefore, in the subsequent insertion into the working field. That is why we have built a project which will design innovative activities using new tools and proposals for action in order to achieve progress in adult students, especially those students who have failed to achieve basic skills.
We are very conscious about that context has changed in the last times and that it is essential to be adapted to it, so TRODEU starts on that premise. “Teaching nice and make it nice while learning” The more students have the feeling they are enjoying, the more they learn. Starting from knowing our students ́ interests we will accordingly act, because that is the best way for motivation. We will create open, creative and diverse classrooms to encourage the development of the students ́ skills through learning, being more practical, hat Will make easier for students to adapt the content to the real world. Students will co-design their own learning. We assu me that we live in a digital world in which students must be protagonists of their own learning; in this sense, technology is a great ally to get it. There will be closer relationship with direct experience, so a systematic opening to the environment will occur. Students will no longer be “spectators” and will become “participants”.
It will consolidate the competency approach, focusing education through skills and not just in knowledge. We intend to achieve the established objectives through the use of different ARTS: painting, literature, music, sculpture (craftsmanship in general), photography and cinema; as they are the essential ARISBAE foundation. We start from the consideration that each student has some innate qualities that can benefit themselves and the project. We propose that by bringing these qualities afloat we can lead them to succeed and acquire different knowledge.
In this sense, starting from their own interests and needs can be engaging and motivating towards to reach the desired goals. By compiling all different proposals we will get to configure the training course: “How to work emotional intelligence in adult education through ART” ARISBAE will get: a methodological impact on the formation, b) a social impact in institutions and families, a scientific impact with different proposals which will generate success and political impact, establishing a bridge between methodological, scientific and social field, proposing policies of governments, organizations and collectives actions to ensure real educational improvement.
With all this, ARISBAE will achieve profits long-term benefits, mainly because the intellectual producto will be expanded regionally, nationally and internationally. It will be available to anyone who requests it. Once the project is completed, cooperation with different administrations and institutions will be sought, offering them the organization of the training course. ARISBAE components are: SOCAEAN Spain as coordinator country, “Gli Amici di Elena. ONLUS” Rovigo, Italy; CPIA Taranto, Italy; Narodno chitalishte Bulgaria, ENVOL de Segré, France y ASF Spain.
