Situational analysis of esd at school level in mauritius unesco funded projects

Situational Analysis of ESD at school level in Mauritius (UNESCO funded Projects)

SITAN Report (2011)

Major Findings

Absence or very little coverage of CC related concepts in the school curricula.

Lack of appropriate climate change education (CCE) resources

fewer CCE extracurricular activities

need for appropriate training in CCE

Need for a proper structure or mechanism to empower the school managers to support their educators in CCE activities were also noted

2. A variety of activities: stories, poems, case studies, projects, arts works, ...etc

2. Diverse Learning Approaches

  • Individual learning

  • Group Learning (interactive or cooperative learning) ...may involve milling

  • Experiential learning: learners go through a carefully crafted experience inside or outside the classroom (e.g field visits) before discussing and analysing what they have learnt. (2 forms: simulation games, role play activities)

  • Participatory learning :

    • sharing of ideas, experiences and perspectives

    • It is informed by the core values of human rights, peace and democracy and gives everyone a voice

    • Empower young people to contribute to social change

    • Variety and diversity in learning programmes

    • Whole-person learning.
