ChangeMakers is an Erasmus+ project whose main goal was to create an innovative computer learning game for Design Thinking Education of children (6 -10 yo), that can be easily implemented in formal, non-formal and informal education settings.
The online game, available in a free beta version, is complemented by a Toolkit to support teachers, parents and other educators with the implementation of the game both in class and in the free time and also with inspirational hints on how to further develop the design thinking mindset.

Teach for Romania recruits the most valuable young Romanians, trains them as inspirational teachers and supports them to become leaders in education. We support pro-bono the planning and strategy work for the training and development of the teachers. Read more about the project.
Under the EEA Grants scheme with Romania, Newschool has been partnering with several projects involving teacher training in student-centered and project based methods, with a special focus on working with students from minority and/or extreme poverty backgrounds.
In the “We Learn Together” project, our team assisted by two experienced Romanian trainers, worked with over 70 teachers from rural areas, training them in experiential learning methods, and designing a curriculla for including Roma minority children. Read more about the project on our news page.
A.D.A.P.T.- Adaptation through the development of early personal skills- is a project in the field of education aimed at integrating Roma students into school and in class, and Roma citizens in the community, and it aims to enhance personal and communication skills of both teachers and students. The project aims to create a common space, defined by physical, cultural and emotional security, in which members of minority communities experience the cultural aspects of everyday life with the majority population – side by side. Newschool participated both during the first stage of the project - training of teachers from partner schools in the consortium on student-centered studies and Curricular design, and will continue supporting teachers in the second year, when teachers will implement the specific inclusion curriculum, created in the previous phase.
