Five Projects Have Been Selected To Participate in the 2019 Active Teachers Program

Of the 26 applications received, the proposals of five pairs of teachers were chosen, who will participate in a three day program of activities and workshops from the 24th to the 28th of April in Punta Arenas.

The chosen teachers will have the opportunity to visit the Río Seco Natural History Museum and learn about their educational program. Filmmaker Tiziana Panizza will also present her work and talk with the teachers about interdisciplinarity  in film and education.

The program will also include a visit to the San Isidro Lighthouse (the southernmost lighthouse on the continent) and learn methodologies that combine ecology, history and archaeology to teach about natural and cultural heritage. A final session of reflecting and sharing experiences amongst each other will conclude the schedule of activities in Punta Arenas.

The following are the selected projects for this year’s program:

A key aspect of the Active Teachers Program lies in the teacher’s ability to instigate change in their communities hence the Punta Arenas workshops will focus on learning how to then replicate and transfer the learnings on how art and nature can connect to their respective students and establishments.
