Project
This proof-of-concept project arises in order to value the results of a previous project (COMPECO), where the identified moral, motivational and group factors of influence come into play with the individuals themselves (tendency to play the roles of victims, aggressors, collaborators or prosocial) that are implicit in the phenomena of bullying and cyberbullying. Conceptually, set the moral element as the fourth criterion to define peer unjustified aggressiveness (already in process within the framework of the team that makes the proposal) and transfer the consequent educational model designed to schools and educational centers. The methodology and the work and implementation plan are specified in a series of activities that will be carried out throughout the two years programmed for the duration of the project: 1) Creation of the proof of concept and its value for scientific advancement of the field, through the publication of the results in high impact journals that allow the recognition by the scientific community of said conceptual modification. 2) Create and maintain these values scientifically and educationally alive through the design of a pro-active website that transmits and channels the implementation of the proposed educational model, whose principles have been published in recent years and whose main focus is in the construction of coexistence and cyber-coexistence. 3) Dissemination to governmental and non-governmental organizations, as well as educational centers, of a digitized educational tool that incorporates the moral dimension to improve the management of convivencia.
Project
The BOOST project will develop an approach to integrate socio-emotional competence in teachers' pedagogical skills and classroom interaction and a tool for organisational development to facilitate implementation and uptake of the approach in classrooms, schools and among school owners (the BOOST approach). The development will involve primary children, as well as school owners, teachers, policy makers and a multidisciplinary team of researchers from fields of education, public health, psychology and economics. To ensure the relevance of the BOOST approach in a wide range of European contexts, the approach will be developed, implemented and tested in three diverse European settings, Poland, Spain and Norway. The BOOST approach will be evaluated for its shortterm and long-term effects on children's social and emotional well-being, as well as for its economic benefits.
