Some videos have not very good quality, due to technical limits, so maybe it is not easy to understand them.

It can be interesting, before starting, to get familiar with concepts such as “competences”, “lifelong learning”, “assessment” and so on. This information can be provided to participants before or after the videos, in different ways.
Before projecting the videos, a short introduction is necessary. This can have different formats (a more formal presentation, a more dynamic one, etc.), but it is important to introduce a bit the general context. Eventually, a longer introduction can include also some key information about the concepts explored in the videos (up to 30 minutes). This part can be developed as a specific workshop.
The projection of all the videos can take maximum 15 minutes.
After the videos, a short round of comments by the audience can help to understand the impact of the videos on the group. If the specific concepts explored by the videos have not been introduced previously, it is important to clarify them to participants. The debate can touch the following points:
- Are you familiar with these concepts of learning?
- Is your school familiar with these concepts of learning?
- Which is the “learning” reality of your school? Of your country?
- How could you improve your participation in the decision-making process related with your learning?
- Do you know any kind of initiative that can support you in this task?
We suggest to keep the debate relatively short (up to 60 minutes)
