- Peace Education has become a popular topic of conversation among educators throughout the world. Traditional education practices have distanced the student. Modern instruction should incorporate empathy and ownership into modern conflict resolution strategies. New methods such as digital technology empower students in schools and communities. Through a partnership with Peace Learning Center and Bully Safe USA, Eway brings a new idea -the use of technology (social media, SMS, and mobile devices) to Anti-bullying and violence prevention in education programs.
- Peace education is a participatory holistic process that includes teaching for and about democracy and human rights, nonviolence, social and economic justice, gender equality, environmental sustainability, disarmament, traditional peace practices, international law, and human security”. (Hague Appeal for Peace, 2005). Conflict Resolution Education is typically understood to focus on the local/domestic level while the focus of Peace Education is generally more global in perspective. Peace Education also “has a stronger emphasis on social justice orientations and larger systemic issues of violence than conflict education programs” (Jones, 2004).
