In last article we talked about Cards for Democracy through the interview made by Cinzia Billa to Pascale Mompoint Gaillard on this topic.
We therefore investigated the origin of the cards, who designed them and how they were conceived.
In today’s post, we will learn specifically how the Cards for Democracy can be used.
As Pascale herself anticipates in the interview, the Cards were conceived as a very versatile and adaptable tool, and therefore are now also used in different contexts other than the school or academic.
To give an example, today cards are also used in business management and team cooperation contexts.
So, thanks to their versatility, the cards are adaptable to different methods of use.
To use the Cards, it would be good to think in terms of the matrix to which the individual Cards belong, which can fall into three main categories:
Stimulus, learning outcome and response to a problem or situation are the three broad categories.
Then, we have seen that we have actually nine Scenarios that we can develop. All these are going to be presented in detail through next publications.
As Pascale states in the video interview, the cards can be used alone or with the support of other pedagogical methods of our knowledge.
As for the latter, Pascale herself shows us some examples that can go very well with the Cards for Democracy, for example:
The LifeComp framework regards “Personal, Social and Learning to Learn” as a set of competences applying to all spheres of life that can be acquired through formal informal and non-formal education, and can help citizens to thrive in the 21st Century.
The Framework is a set of materials that can be used by education systems to equip young people with all of the competences that are needed to take action to defend and promote human rights, democracy and the rule of law, to participate effectively in a culture of democracy, and to live peacefully together with others in culturally diverse societies.
A book to support teachers in their efforts to promote democracy through and in education developed within the Pestalozzi Programme Community of Practice. This book is meant as a handbook for practitioners in formal and non-formal educational settings.
The interview is hosted by Cinzia Billa, French teacher in Italy and Learn 2 Change’s member since 2015, and the interviewed is Pascale Mompoint Gaillard, researcher, facilitator and co-founder of Learn to Change.
The main topic of the interview is the Cards for Democracy which is one of the latest products that Learn to Change launched.

In this article we answer some questions regarding the decision to transform Learn to Change from an association to a collective.
In this article, we talk about what we mean by Collective – the new form chosen by L2C – and how you can join it.
Learn to Change’s members held a General Assembly in fall 2022, in which the decision was taken to transform the association into a less formal, and more agile entity. Therefore, we will change status, going from an ‘organization’ to a less formal entity that we name “The collective”
If you feel you are committed to the vision and mission of the association, then your place is here.
We are sure that becoming a member will benefit you in many ways. Read the product description for more details or click sign up now.
