A Europa tornou-se uma condição de vida, em que todos desempenhamos um papel enquanto cidadãos europeus. Isto é válido também para os alunos e os professores surdos. A Europa, nesta linha, é também a discussão entre a cultura surda e ouvinte e o papel das línguas gestuais nacionais. Para habilitar os alunos e os professores na compreensão dos sinais visíveis, os significados associados e os processos de identificação pessoal do surdo acerca do que a Europa é ou devia ser, é muito importante na formação dos professores identificar as principais características da cultura surda em relação à ouvinte.
O papel da língua gestual neste processo de identificação cultural e os padrões de qualidade na investigação, realizada pelos alunos da formação de professores sobre os processos de identificação, são parte fundamental deste projecto.
Os resultados destes projecto terão impacto na reforma dos currículos dos departamentos de educação especial, dos Cursos de Professores, Interpretes e Professores de LG, no sentido de incluir questões culturais da comunidade surda em relação à ouvinte, especialmente no que diz respeito à cidadania europeia.
Será igualmente sugerido que as entidades municipais, regionais e nacionais repensem as suas políticas em função da investigação realizada

Welcome to the SMILE portal Europe… has become a condition of life, in which we all have to play a role as European citizens. This goes also for the deaf learners and teachers. Europe in this respect is also the discussion about the relationship between hearing and deaf culture and the role of national sign languages.
To empower learners and teachers to understand the visible signs, attached meanings and personal identification processes of the deaf towards what Europe is or should be, is very important in the training of sign language teachers, interpreters and special needs educationalists
The SMILE project wants to identify the main features of deaf culture in relation to hearing culture (national and European) based on perceptions of deaf and hearing pupils and students. In addition, the role of sign language within these cultural identification processes and the quality standards of student teacher´s research on deaf identification processes are part of the scope of the project.
The project's outcome will have an impact on the reform of curricula of special needs departments, interpreters training and the training of sign language teachers to include deaf vs. hearing cultural issues especially with regarding European Citizenship. In addition, stakeholders like municipalities, regional authorities, ministries and other will be challenged to rethink related policies
Background and Aims of SMILE The SMILE project addresses two emerging needs. The first need reflects the challenges within a Europe of equal opportunities for all, in which inclusion of all people how different they might be is matter of equal human rights. The second need stresses new educational challenges for a Europe as a knowledge-based society. 1. The debate on Europe was and will, especially after the formulated ´Lisbon Strategy´, not only determine the agenda’s of governments, parliaments and political parties, but also of teacher training institutes and schools. Europe has become a condition of life, in which we all have to play a role as European citizens. This goes also for the deaf Europeans, who according to the different representative organisations (EUD, EFSLI, WFD and national associations of the deaf) have the same equal rights. Europe in this respect is also the discussion about the relationship between hearing and deaf culture, bicultural identity and the role of national sign languages. Bringing deaf and hearing pupils in schools together with student teachers and interpreters will stimulate and empower all to understand the visible signs, attached meanings and personal identification processes which constitute theirs perceptions of what Europe is or should be.
2. In this multicultural or diverse Europe, the discussion about Lifelong Learning and teachers´ competences show that good teaching needs good teachers who are able to research the educational contexts in which they work and in which increasingly pupils become involved as independent and critical learners. To know what it means to research educational contexts and especially with respect to schools in which deaf pupils are included, the project will provide solutions for an inclusion of research methodologies and intercultural practices at home and abroad within the curricula of teacher training. The general aims of the project are to identify: - the main features of deaf culture in relation to hearing culture (national and European) based on perceptions of deaf and hearing pupils and students; the role of sign language within cultural identification processes; quality standards for researching Deaf identification processes in schools in Europe
