Pedagogic tools

The Erasmus + Strategic Partnership "Garden without borders. A school to develop key skills in Europe "has produced this collective pedagogical file of 35 work tracks, from the conception, sharing and sharing of educational practices focused on the use of the fragile garden.
It is the result of a collaboration between professors of
- Paysage et patrimoine Association, Saint-Germain-en-Laye, France,
- Acquamarina Association, Trieste, Italy,
- Botanical Garden of the University of Granada, Spain,
- Botanical Garden of the University of Padova, Italy,
- Agrupamento de Escolas João de Deus, Faro, Portugal.

It is a tool to help teachers manage diverse groups of students with learning difficulties and to use new ways to optimize and improve their pedagogy.

Each of the online teaching forms involves these key competences which are transversal to the whole book. These skills are the foundation for personal fulfillment, social inclusion, active citizenship and future employment: a combination of knowledge, skills and attitudes appropriate to each context.

This collective tools presents a series of innovative approaches that contribute to the development of key competences of learners. These approaches encourage transversal approaches built around the same theme: the garden.

Thanks to the Erasmus + partnership, a "Borderless Garden" has just been created in Europe and throughout the world, through the languages of arts and sciences, mathematics and literature, poetry and landscape, as countless bridges thrown between our countries.
