Going from formal to informal education

Going from formal to informal education

Teachers in schools tend to find it difficult to not simply abide by the textbook and assign schoolwork and homework. They are not to be blamed because they are not given the skills to change what they need to teach into something informal. Providing the programme Train the Trainers on a frequent basis (and cheap) in Malta, rather than having to travel to do it, will lead to our educators gaining the skills to make their lessons interactive, inclusive, fun and ones to never forget.

Points

Informal Education (IE) can be crucial in the formation of a sound & healthier mind/character: better understanding, and growth of the intellect/knowledge, that with formal education is not always achievable. The EU, through Erasmus+, instigated in many youths, including me as an NGO leader, the craving for such IE by interacting with other youths of the Member and Participating states. I can vouch that such experiences are not only wonderful but beneficial to the growth of every individual.

I love this idea since it was already tested abroad that children having informal education tend to be more successful. You make the school more interesting for students and an adventure and not something boring. From this kind of education, you will ascertain exactly what these children are most successful.
