Our objective is to make the Peace Teaching Project techniques easy for teachers to implement in their classrooms.
To ensure that the Peace Teaching Project materials are effective and easy to use, Images & Education will pilot test the training programs and materials at a university training center or another appropriate location before making these resources widely available. With their extensive networks of educators and contacts at school systems in developing countries, our partner organizations UNESCO, ECCP and UNDP can help us determine the best locations for pilot testing. Initially, we anticipate pilot testing the English prototype in South Africa.
Participants in the pilot project will be asked to evaluate the effectiveness of the curriculum guides and other project materials through interviews and questionnaires to determine if revisions are necessary. Assessment of the Peace Teaching Project's effectiveness and impact will continue throughout each stage of development, and the evaluation results will be analyzed and incorporated into subsequent adaptations of the Peace Teaching Project materials.
