To enable the BOOST project to flourish in 2020, it is important to familiarize schools and teachers with the BOOST approach.

At the beginning of January, project partners from the University of Cordoba explained the Horizon 2020 project BOOST during interviews with two media outlets: one local radio station and another local newspaper. The aim of the interviews was to discuss the developments of the project and to showcase how the BOOST approach can benefit schools, teachers, and young children. 

Eva Romera, a project partner of BOOST, explained how effective it is to involve teachers in the process of building emotional skills for young children. When teachers are provided with tools to help children build those skills, they could go beyond the traditional “academic” relationship and further work on the overall well-being of the children. Teachers can lay a solid foundation for children to develop and grow further in life and in their professional careers. 

Please find the interviews below and don’t hesitate to register to the BOOST newsletter to find out more about the project and its developments.
