The RETHINK e-learning platform is an innovative programme aiming to offer school teachers a learning experience which will help them to use Remembrance Education practices in the classroom.
Project RETHINK began as a partnership between 6 partners with complementary experience in the field of formal and informal education to support inclusive education by providing educators with innovative tools to challenge prejudices, deepen students’ understanding of phenomena such as polarisation and identity, develop their media literacy and critical thinking skills.
Our 8 modules address specific aspects of Remembrance Education and relevance of the past for today.
