Teaching Philosophy in Primary & Secondary Education

A pilot digital community dedicated to the teaching of Philosophy and Critical Thinking & Argumentation (CTA) in Primary & Secondary Education. The idea is to bring together all philosophy teachers and practitioners in secondary education (and beyond) across Europe and encourage content sharing, distance collaboration and learning, innovation in the classroom, e-Learning, policy understanding and many more and start... living the examined life in the classroom!
