“Everyone has the right to quality and inclusive education, training and life-long learning in order to maintain and acquire skills that enable them to participate fully in society and manage successfully transitions in the labour market.” (Tibor Navracsics, European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport)
The eTwinning book “Building a culture of inclusion through eTwinning” presents a selection of eTwinning projects and activities promoting inclusive education and shows how the teachers and the pupils involved in eTwinning contribute to addressing the educational challenges of today.
The book focuses on the three following aspects:
- How to overcome geographical obstacles faced by young people from remote or rural areas, and young people living on small islands or in peripheral regions.
- How to enhance intercultural understanding, notably with young people from minorities and/or from disadvantaged socio-economic background: immigrants, refugees or descendants from immigrant or refugee families, young people belonging to a national or ethnic minority, young people with linguistic adaptation and cultural inclusion difficulties etc.
- How to deal with educational challenges and keep the full inclusion of young people with learning difficulties, school refusal issues, young people with lower level of qualifications or poor school performance etc.
