ACT! IN EDUCATION, innovative blended learning for all

Be inspired and get ready to innovate and provide quality education to all

(with ready to use materials for teachers)

MasterPeace foundation (the Netherlands), Edu4U (Slovakia) and MasterPeace Ro (Romania) finalized the ACT! In Education project. ACT! In Education was supported by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union to support Digital Education Readiness leaving no one behind. The project is finished, but it is just the start of our joint mission to boost the transformation of schools and teachers towards blended learning in which no-one is left behind and all have access to quality education.

ACT stands for the “doing” part as now is the time to ACT. Since the outbreak of the coronavirus, the urgency for quality education in general and blended learning in particular while leaving no one behind has never been so high. ACT stands also for Artist Create Together in the sense that teachers and students are the architects of their own future. All youngsters deserve quality education. Embracing digital opportunities is an opportunity to be innovative, effective and to leave no one behind. The main objective of the project was to boost transformation of schools and teachers towards blended learning in which no-one is left behind and all have access to quality education.


The concrete project outputs are

Ø  A handbook/guidebook to organize a blended learning in social science for teachers and trainers

Ø  An online course for teachers and trainers on blended learning in social science

Ø  Detailed lesson plans and materials to run projects on different subjects in the field of social science and citizenship, implemented and tested by students

Ø  The ACT in Education Lab, a knowledge platform to provide teachers, trainers and educators with useful suggestions, examples and methodologies which can be used in digital learning in different school subject. The Lab consist of the platform in combination with the e-learning platform, that contains more relevant tools (for ex. SELFIE) and a forum.


The project accomplished that

ü  9+ teachers have more teaching skills and a broader offer of services relevant in a digital era

ü  270+ students are engaged through the pilot projects and empowered as co-creators of the blended formats

ü  15+ community projects are run with social impact


However, the results and achievement go far far beyond the outputs and numbers. We focused on the transformation using content in the domain of social science. The supporting strategies, processes and organization can be scaled for the use in the other domains of the schools. All the teachers became very passionate about the new way of work and became ambassadors of the use of the outputs.

"I feel more confident now. I tried new methods, I put in practice new ideas. It was for sure an inspiring experience and I have to be thankful for it. I hope that more teachers will approach this concept, blended learning and these five concepts of Act in Education"
