EnhanCing the Participation and learning Performance of Migrant and RefUgee Children in Primary School Education
October 2017 – September 2019
The E-COURSE project aims at enhancing the access, participation and learning performance of newly arrived migrants and refugee children in primary school education in Germany, Greece, Italy, France and Cyprus as well as at a European level in order to promote their overall integration in the host societies.
The project helps teachers and school staff in addressing the learning needs of migrant and refugee children and provides them with valuable skills and tools to do so.
The project contributes to the enhancement of participation and improvement of performance of newly arrived migrant and refugee students in primary schools, thus tackling the Early School Leaving phenomenon:
The project partners created a downloadable, shareable pdf, that summarizes the online teacher course, and gives practical ideas, tools on how to create an inclusive classroom, where migrant learners and members of the majority group can effectively and respectfully work together, embracing the differences and the similarities.
