The project’s objective was to provide an interactive platform for teaching basic literacy skills in four languages.
The endeavour addressed children of minority or migrant backgrounds, school teachers and parents.
In pursuing the project’s objectives, the participants resorted to some effective methods. They linked formal and non-formal learning and focused on inclusion, participation and cooperation between students, teachers and parents. The innovative development and implementation of digital tools proved particularly beneficial.
The project supported extensive language learning, based on gamification of tutorial content with a variety of interactive resources. Teaching ideas and pedagogical instruments were based on the family learning approach and involved the entire community. The free resource base is sustainable and is already upgraded with more aids developed by other projects.
The teachers were involved by using their everyday education resources while working with children and their parents. They also shared and discussed the results of their activities with their colleagues throughout the school networks. The project contributed greatly to upskilling teachers’ digital skills that can be further used in collaborative work at the EU level.
Impact and output
The importance of the project’s outcome shows at many levels. Firstly, it empowered the teachers who, with the aid of innovative tools, were able to overcome the language barrier while working with children of a different mother tongue. The platform developed in the course of the project greatly encouraged the teachers as they could better understand and meet the needs of the children.
The parents were able to play their role by supporting their children in their learning through playing.
The impressive results were produced as 85% of the children were able to read fluently at the end of the course. The time for acquiring each skill shortened considerably compared to the traditional learning in class.
