The project has worked with thematic learning around the theme of Landmines. The theme has been broken down into seven Thematic Modules each include a number of units that are connected. The units can also be used in combinations that entail several Thematic Modules. The units contain one or more lessons and teacher’s instructions on how to use them.

Digital competence. DEMETER students used new technologies as the basis for communication, learning, analysis, production of results, etc.c
Learn to learn. Working through projects based on thematic learning allows students to improve their organization and collaborative skills.
Social and civic competences. In the DEMETER project many ethical dilemmas have been debated and through many activities the student has been made to understand and rethink concepts such as justice, human rights, solidarity, etc.
Initiative and entrepreneurial spirit. The student has been encouraged to become responsible for their own learning and has to make decisions regarding problem solving. The student will have to manage and plan in order to meet the challenges that the DEMETER project is posing.
