Building relationships between schools
The concept of VVOB’s SchoolLinks programme is to form a lasting and equal partnership between schools with a focus on educational goals. These are primary and secondary schools located in Flanders on the one hand, and in a VVOB partner country on the other hand.
We believe that SchoolLinks can be a tool to counter new educational challenges in an interesting, fun and contemporary way. Through their direct long-term relationship, students and teachers can share knowledge and experiences about their culture, values, dreams and concerns. This adds an international dimension to education and brings the world into the classroom.
For children, this is a very pleasant way to tackle learning issues and to make global issues tangible. They can broaden their world view and acquire new skills (intercultural, language, ICT...). For teachers, the exchange of good practices can enrich their learning and teaching.
