The educational toolkit we are on the same boat is the result of training and awareness-raising experiences carried out by the civil society organization Comitato 3 Ottobre in schools in Italy and in other countries of the European continent. It aims to provide secondary school teachers and students with a useful educational tool to understand migration. After a long journey of meetings across secondary schools, the authors believed it would be useful to put together the resulting topics, methodologies, insights and
reflections. To date, in fact, 260 schools from 20 different countries have participated in our meetings, for a total of over 55,000 students; an important work, which allowed the Comitato 3 Ottobre to gain awareness of its role and capabilities, combined with the urgency to provide teachers and students with a tool to be used to address and analyse the issues discussed during the many meetings described above.
The we are on the same boat toolkit guides teachers through the in-depth study of specific content on migration, and also intends to steer a participatory debate and discussion, putting students at the centre as they are to become active protagonists in the creation of their own knowledge, training and education. Teachers and students will be free to investigate the many areas outlined, expanding them through more specific training and
learning objectives, also from an interdisciplinary point of view.
The activities and research material included in this publication also aim to directly involve students, accompanying them on their journey of growth, and providing them with smart and updated tools for the conscious creation of an exploratory and knowledge itinerary.
