Last week LEARN|RIGHT participated in “The festival of democracy” as The People’s Meeting (Folkemødet) taking place on Bornholm, is also known as. The purpose with LEARN|RIGHT participation on Bornholm, was to present the new learning material Left out (Udenfor) and discuss the dilemmas in the movie Little terrorist (Lille terrorist) which LEARN|RIGHT assisted Amondo and Candofilm in developing.
The presentation took place at a workshop on The Danish association of teachers “rock-stage”, located next to Allinge Harbor. It was not completely coincidental that the launch of the material took place in this sunlit rock scenery: As it were teachers from Bornholm that participated in the development and testing of the teaching material: we quickly agreed that a launch of the material should take place on ‘The People’s Meeting’’ on Bornholm, Maria Løkke Rasmussen, CEO of LEARN|RIGHT expresses. She was also happy to notice that one of the teachers, despite a busy schedule, found time to contribute to the workshop, with her experiences with the test-run of the material. Also, amongst the participants was Lene Poulsen, from the municipality of Bornholm, who was the coordinator of the participating test-schools.
The materials was well received by the attendants of the workshop, who saw and debated the movie and tried multiple exercises from the material. There was a broad consensus amongst the participants that the material seemed very inspirational and the printed copies were quickly snapped up. The two facilitators of the workshop Mette Wybrandt from Amondo and Maria Løkke Rasmussen from LEARN|RIGHT were very pleased with the day and conference over all: It is certainly not the last time we are participating in the conference of the people! they expressed unanimously.
The learning material Left out gives the teachers from the 6th to the 10th grade an opportunity to team up with their students and work interdisciplinary on democratic development. This with a point of departure in the three values, trust, equality and freedom. The material consists of the movie Little terrorist and 20 interactive exercises, that are very straight forward and can be combined in a variety of classes per example, history, religion, social studies, complementary teaching and in the general, work with welfare in the classes.
LEARN|RIGHT has contributed since the Spring of 2018, both in the development and test-phase of the teaching material. The material can be accessed for free at learnright.dk under publications or www.udenfor.info
