AIMS AND OBJECTIVES - general description for the LearningMigration Network)
The main thematic area of the network is Learning About Migration and Intecultural Relations (LearningMigration). This means sharing experience and best practice of how best to deal with the educational challenge of the increasing number of immigrants into Europe, and also the greater movement of people between European countries. It also means integrating a better understanding of the phenomenon of migration into daily teaching in all parts of the educational community. It further means involving educational authorities in this network of educators with the purpose of testing how governmental plans and reforms are implemented in schools and teacher training, and also involve research institutions and NGOS in this process.
To turn this into practical working areas the large number of institutions in the LearningMigration network has been organised into four transnational seminar groups of (a) local schools, (b) teacher training institutions, (c) institutions of didactical research, and (d) educational authorities that will discuss educational challenges in a comparative and sharing manner (an indenpendent group for NGOs will not be set up).
Each of the four thematic seminar groups will be active in CLUSTERING networks, projects and initiatives in the area of migration and interculturral relations, thereby fostering long term collaboration with other networks, projects, and European initiatives.
- Collaborative learning in transnational groups (seminar groups)
- Collaborative learning in integrated (complementary) groups in each country
- Strengthening the historical dimension in learning: the understanding that migration is an ongoing phenomenon that is not new to Europe – in fact that migration is “normal” for society. However, that migration has been increasing year by year as part of globalisation and that certain competences should be trained in schools to make students better able to handle a rapidly changing world.
- Strenghtening the use of Emphaty in the learning situation through implementing of story telling and related pedagogy
- Encourage “exchange” as a pedagogic instrument (students, teachers, schools, families).
