The Results

The project will contribute to the development, validation and scaling-up of an array of useful resources and tools that address the needs of the target groups. These include:

SOCI@LL roadmap, which will support, leverage and accelerate systemic changes: based on an exhaustive process of literature review, end-users’ consultation and evidence on the effectiveness of existing practices, this roadmap will lay the foundations for a solid, common and shared body of knowledge and will guide the interested parties with a detailed strategy, action plan and useful/feasible recommendations towards more inclusive systems inside and around schools.

A methodological approach that will foster engagement, commitment and sense of ownership in all the different stakeholders involved in the local open partnerships and in the European alliance: through a set of small-scale events and with the support of the virtual platform, key-actors such as schools and schools communities, local authorities, other relevant stakeholders and scientific/technical experts will have the opportunity to locally and internationally learn together, share and benchmark experiences and cooperate between and within systems, taking control of the future sustainability of the project resources.

sustainability of culturally-sensitive and inclusive systems inside and around schools: comprised by guidelines (corresponding to strategies, tools and methods that school leaders can put into practice to promote inclusive and democratic learning environments inside schools); programme of activities (that translated into a “SOCI@LL week”, reflects the commitment of the school and whole learning community with inclusive and democratic schools) and edutainment resources (that support the set of activities to be implemented during the “Week”), this toolkit will be tested by end-users and fine-tuned to ensure optimised alignment with the stakeholders needs and expectations.

A toolkit for teachers that will support these key agents to drive and put into practice curricular and pedagogical innovation and foster multicultural learning in and out classrooms: comprised by guidelines (strategies, tools and methods to promote inclusive and democratic learning environments inside classrooms, using more culturally-sensitive topics and innovative pedagogical approaches), manual (curriculum guide/program for celebrating diversity and upskilling multicultural competencies) and supporting resources (audio-visual materials, activities and solution scenarios, project-based learning exercises and other), this toolkit will be tested by end-users and fine-tuned to ensure optimised alignment with the stakeholders needs and expectations.

A toolkit for local authorities that will support them into the creation and maintenance of cross-sectorial platforms for social inclusion: comprised by a step-by-step methodological approach to social labs and supporting resources to create, animate and sustain these social inclusion platforms, this toolkit will be tested by end-users and fine-tuned to ensure optimised alignment with the stakeholders needs and expectations.

A Virtual Social Lab which will foster and nurture cross-sectorial relations at local and European level as well as create real inclusive and participatory learning opportunities, supported by the innovative resources developed within the project: The main purposes of this platform (with key features of a social lab) are to provide an intuitive, straight forward and full experience to the end-users, to foster and sustain meaningful alliance between main actors and to generate systemic changes.
