“Social inclusion at school: new perspectives for a smart learning ecosystem”
With sharply increasing cultural, linguistic and socio-economic diversity in Europe’s school populations, the shift towards educational practices that embrace the inclusion of all learners has become a priority. However, teachers need support in establishing inclusion as a cornerstone of their practice. PLayful Environment for Inclusive leArning Design in Europe (PLEIADE) is an Erasmus Plus Strategic Partnership for schools that responds to this scenario by treating it as an opportunity for needs-driven educational innovation powered by teachers’ professional capacity building. PLEIADE basic assumption is that carefully orchestrated learner collaboration can support inclusive classroom dynamics and attitudes. Thus, in this event organised by the PLEIADE project, several experts in collaborative learning, inclusive education, learning design, gamification, Technology Enhanced Learning, teacher education and continuous professional development will discuss how teachers can take advantage of smart learning ecosystems for inclusive teaching. This event addresses educators, researchers, teacher educators, policy makers and anyone who is interested in promoting equity and inclusion of socially, culturally and economically disadvantages children. It will provide an opportunity to engage with state-of-the art knowledge and different stakeholders’ viewpoints about social inclusion at school and how technology can support it. It is open to all interested parties with no subscription fees.
