"Actually, I need a school of happiness in Trudo ljub, that i t was. I want to do something useful for it. Well ... as a leader without a title. I do not need a title. I want my grandchildren to say: "Our grandfather died for Ukraine, and my grandmother traveled around the world after his death, spoke English and changed the school." And we will say nothing more - read it yourself.
Another cool article about the Ukrainian-Finnish experiment "Change in 7 Days" in Trudoljub school.

03.05.2017 | Waiting for "New Ukrainian School"
What questions did the teachers ask to the Ministry of Education and Science Liliya Grynevych at the Third National (Un)conference EdCamp Ukraine 2017?
The mission of teachers - to be a light. The mission of education - to discover the world. Since it is rapidly changing, schools and teachers must also change. I know how difficult it is for those who have an active role in their groups. I wish EdCamp would give you the inspiration to go forward. When I see this room, and these people, I am sure that the new Ukrainian school, the school of competencies of XXI century will be!", - Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine Liliya Grynevych.
Why should children have to draw, sing and dance at school? When instead of methodological cabinets should "educational service centers" that will supervise and assist teachers appear? What do we need to get a teacher - mentor and friend for each child? Participants of the Third national (un)conference EdCamp Ukraine 2017 were looking for answers of these questions.
"They wish us peace and our land to be all reunited. Wish us good. They call to come to Lviv region, want to come to visit us, they want to talk more. In fact, it is unexpected but very nice!" Children from Stanycja Lugansjka responded to letters which the teacher from Lviv region have brought for them.
Some teachers are not satisfied with outdated curricula, others - with the excess paperwork and the lack of practical application of knowledge. In their schools these teachers feel like white crows, and here at the forum - they are among the alike-minded persons. They are looking for new friends and share contacts. How it happens - watch cool video from TV Gromadsjke.
Just from the event`s place on national TV :)
Implementation of sexual education, inclusion and changes in programs - for such innovations education system is waiting", - Minister of Education and Science of Ukraine Liliya Grynevych said within the Third educational (un)conference EdCamp.

Stock up with white paint! "We are building a community of responsible teachers! - participants of the event affirm. We are white crows in the educational space, but we do not suffer from this, on the contrary: we offer all teachers to stock up with white paint!"
"Development and professional growth of the teacher can be occured in different forms and institutions. Teachers, if they want, can develop programs themselves, basing on the abilities of schoolstudents and on their own experience. Freedom and independence should become the most important factors for the work of teachers. School itself should prepare not for exams, but for life", - Oleksandr Elkin, inspirer of the EdCamp movement in Ukraine, said.
Liliya Grynevych will join EdCamp Ukraine 2017 and during Saturday along with the Head of Kharkiv Regional State Administration Yuliya Svitlychna will attend the opening of (un)conference and the start of the national phase of Global Teachers Prize, during the "frank conversation" will communicate with teachers about the "New Ukrainian School", listen to Sir Ken Robinson and will take part in an informal meeting with experts from 20 countries.
To give advice about the future teacher himself/ herself must see this future and possibilities of it for the child. In the projections of the most popular professions in 2030 Canadian experts put teacher on the first place. That is why the main theme of the Third National (Un)conference will be "New Ukrainian School", which is to prepare children for the future and new jobs. Aestheticians, school nutritionists, simplicity experts ... which specialties are also defined by this study?
At which stand at the Third National (Un)conference will be possible not only to get verbal advice, but also information cards about various books and a brief description explaining why these books are worth reading by teachers and their students? What publishing houses have supporeted literary gatherings?
In Ukraine children evaluating teachers - an unprecedented phenomenon for the current school system, in which teachers have the inviolable authority, and school students are often left out of the educational process. What will open lessons on the Third National (Un)conference EdCamp Ukraine in 2017 look like?
