At GREEN S.E.E.D.S. distance teaching and learning is not a consequence of the global health emergency. It is the very heart of the project, instead, which was conceived and started well before the Covid-19.

The actors of GREEN S.E.E.D.S. are in fact the small decentralized schools, which have always thought of distance learning as a resource.

For this reason, GREEN S.E.E.D.S. project provides teachers with theory and tools to study, compare and put into practice paths of interaction and collaboration between pupils of isolated schools from different countries.
