Welcome to the iTDi Blog
Teaching for a cause
with Theodora Papapanagiotou as guest editor
I have always believed that teaching is not only teaching a subject, but something much greater than this. We are using our power to share knowledge, but also to do something good for the community, make our students think about what’s happening in the world, and give them a chance to participate in changing it. In this issue we will explore some of the causes that teachers support, and wonderful projects that they have started in order to raise awareness and inspire others. Angelos Bollas gives us advice on teaching about inclusion, equality and diversity, Margarita Kosior describes her Tales of Strays project, Craig Wherlock shares a lesson plan about racism, and Efi Tzouri shares her experience with the Hands Up Project.
