We train educators.

Educate yourself. With educational horizons.

Relevant to practice

Educating is craftsmanship, not a sport of thought. At educational horizons is about improving your pedagogical practice.

Interdisciplinary

Ateducational horizons look outside the box of pedagogy, into its exciting neighboring disciplines: Psychology, Philosophy, Sociology and Neuroscience

Challenging

Anji Play: auto-assessment with smart-phone help

Mouth shut, eyes open, and PLAY. Free play is essential. And the play-button for video recording. The educators watch the children with all their attention and with their smart-phones. And then reflect on their gaming experience together.
