Resources for Rural Schools
While no two rural areas are the same, the following traits define rural communities, to a greater or lesser degree, across OECD countries, and should be taken into consideration when designing policies/curricula for rural education: Geographical distance, small population size, and sparse population, low socioeconomic status, ethnically homogenous and socially cohesive communities. For teachers working in rural communities, the opportunities and challenges can differ than for teacher counterparts working in an urban setting. This seminar wishes to provide a space for teachers in a rural setting to address these issues and to provide innovative opportunities to bring the learning environment from a local to a European dimension.
This contact-making seminar focuses on the issue of schools located in rural areas and who face rural isolation. The seminar will look at resources that support and engage teachers working in these areas and how to expand their school from their local area to a European dimension.
- To provide the space for teachers to discuss the topic of rural isolation and to provide resources to tackle this issue.
