The Ensemble project: when m-learning fosters social inclusion The Ensemble project: when m-learning fosters social inclusion Presentation Transcript

  • The Ensemble project When m-learning fosters social inclusion Co-financed by the European Community in the Lifelong Learning Programme Project n°: 143427-LLP-1-2008-1-IT-KA3-KA3MP Pierfranco Ravotto Ensemble Project manager
  • Aims Inclusion & social cohesion are two European goals The European Commission underlines “ the potential of new technologies to enable innovative services and empower people in particular young people at risk of exclusion, migrants and cultural minorities, notably through multilingual and adapted content”. “ i2010 initiative on e-inclusion – To be part of the information society”, European Commission, 2007
  • Aims New technologies give us a glimpse of emerging new settings and possibilities for the future society, suggesting new affordances, which, however, have to be adequately adapted and geared towards goals that are ethically significant. Antonio Calvani Scientific Director of the Ensemble project
  • Ensemble idea
    • The starting idea was to take advantage of widely used technologies, like MP3 players and mobile phones , and test out teaching methods and communication formats suitable for these tools and for the addressed target:
    • adults (1st generation migrants)
    • young people (2nd generation).
  • Ensemble idea
    • The starting idea was to take advantage of widely used technologies, like MP3 players and mobile phones , and test out teaching methods and communication formats suitable for these tools and for the addressed target:
    • adults (1 st generation migrants),
    • young people (2 nd generation).
    • During the project it was also decided to test the use of netbooks because of their potential in fostering ubiquitous and inclusive learning.
  • Ensemble partnership The project was based on two experiments that had already started: • the use of podcasts in the classrooms by teachers in Yvelines ( CG78 & CRDP ) • the use SMS by the Prato Municipality to inform citizens Promoter: Florence University, Education Science department Technological partner: GiuntiLabs UK CRDP
  • Target Young people, second generation migrants Adults, first generation migrants Age: 13-16 classes with a high percentage of immigrants School Students Parents
  • Target and tools Young people, second generation migrants Adults, first generation migrants Students Parents
  • Target and tools Young people, second generation migrants Adults, first generation migrants Students Parents
  • Target and tools Young people, second generation migrants Adults, first generation migrants Students Parents
  • Workplan
  • Where to find the products Reports, Articles Podcasts, MMS, LOs www.ensembleproject.eu
  • Conclusions
    • The partners, both in Yvelines and in Prato, intend to go on using mobile technologies, re-using the Ensemble learning materials and methodology.
    • MMS, multimedia communication through mobile phones, proved to be less powerful than our expectations.
    • The idea of using netbooks in classroom is a real possibility, which well fits the mobile learning sphere.
    • The school can be the core of an integration action starting from students activities to involve their parents.
