                             THE BASIC GROUPS – 

Why organize groups like this? It was felt that it is important, after having a 'strong' experience of training in the workshops, to reflect together on the meaning of what has just been done and to try to transfer it into class practices. Experience only is not sufficient if it is not followed by reflection to return to practice with more attention and ability to readjust to its context the experienced elements.
An added value is also the possibility of exchanging among participants in different workshops, which can offer a panorama of all the activities of the different groups of the morning.
Note that first-person activity, as adults, is fundamental to work well in the classroom, but it needs time and space for reflection.

The following is a summary of participants' comments and expectations. It will be useful to the organizers of the next RIDEF.



Strengthen our approach to FP to better disseminate it in our classes and have it recognized as a state pedagogy.

Disseminating techniques AND philosophy

Promoting children's rights

Need to discuss the problem of sanctions in our classes. The school council can not operate in an environment of educational violence.

Look for strategies that enable collaboration with authorities

How to adapt teaching to each learner.


Coherence between the theme of the Ridef and the workshops

Go back with extra baggage to help in the classroom and with each child. Be better equipped to practice in the classroom and transfer the acquired knowledge to the children
