Innovation at school: Promoting understanding, thinking and action in classrooms.


Educational innovation involves a challenging exercise which is seen as culture, prevails over time and pervades the interventions of all actors.
The aim of the thematic areas proposed in this congress is to reflect upon the ways of promoting and developing understanding, thinking and action which, from classrooms, have an impact in the school and the community. They offer an opportunity for training and improvement and they encourage reflection upon one´s own practice, thus inspiring others to generate new proposals.
