Researchers from the School of Education at the University of Sheffield are working on a curriculum development project. In partnership with a Youth Advisory Board, they have created a series of interdisciplinary, project-based lessons that aim to promote critical thinking, digital literacy, and social justice for pupils in primary and secondary education. The team are recruiting ‘Teacher Ambassadors’ in the UK, to pilot lessons and add to their growing curriculum. Teacher Ambassadors will be paid for their time and contribution.
