Les enseignantes et enseignants, à travers leur appropriation pédagogique des technologies de l’information et de la communication (TIC) se trouvent – quelquefois émerveillés – au milieu de l’Océan.

Time to teach and learn peace? June 16, 2016 No Comments

When I tell people I teach peace, the usual response is, “What?” Usually they think they’ve misheard me, perhaps thinking I said “peas,” or sometimes “P.E.,” like physical education. “No, peace,” I explain, giving a visual cue using my peace sign fingers, “—things like conflict resolution, compassionate communication, nonviolence, sustainability.
