Erasmus Plus Programme

Il programma Erasmus+ (detto Erasmus Plus) è un progetto europeo che, partito nel 2014, va a sostituire, rinnovandolo, il vecchio progetto Leonardo. Si tratta di un’iniziativa che si rivolge a diversi soggetti, tra cui atleti, personale docente e non e, in generale, gli studenti di Istituti di Istruzione Superiore, ovvero tutti quegli istituti che rilascino una laurea o altre certificazione riconosciute dal MIUR e che aderiscano al programma (quindi Università, Politecnici, Istituti di Belle Arti, Conservatori, ecc.), nonché i neolaurati.

Democratisation of HE in LA has helped to ensure a growing trend of increasing enrolment of students with disability, although it is still not significant enough in terms of potential numbers (Mexico: disabled people access in HE lower than 5%, Chile: 6,6% from which, only 2,66% complete their studies, Argentina: disabled students represents 0,08% of the students population). The adaptation of HE to cater for disability is of major importance from an economic, political and social point of view. Only through this can the employability of disabled persons be enhanced, and public policies focusing on the promotion of work, income security, poverty prevention and social exclusion can be supported. In this context, Chile, Argentina and Mexico goverments and HEIs have taken some measures to provide the necessary legal frameworks for the inclusion of disabled students within society however there are enormous voids between the law, public policies, and actual practices.

The MUSE project proposal “Disability and Modernity: Ensuring Quality Education for Disabled Students” is an ambitious initiative with a wide range of stakeholders, activities and operational goals to cope with complex challenges. Taking into account the substantial expertise and advancement in this domain in recent years by European universities, the project aims to raise awareness on inclusive education through exchange of good-practices between EU and LA HEIs. The main objective constitutes the development of a sustainable knowledge base and support structure allowing for a coherent implementation of disability initiatives, and directional strategic plans in LA HEIs. A network will engage stakeholders in an educational and social discussion for the inclusion of disabled students in HEIs and a new external relation framework will be created to facilitate their economic integration.

The STEP project (School Teacher Education Environment Program) “Citizenship pedagogy and teacher education: an alliance between school and territory” is based upon transectorial orizontal priorities of basic and transversal competences development  through innovative methods, strengthening the teacher profession, the research and education quality by exchanging best practices and transnational cooperation. The project’s aim is developing and improving preschol and primary interdisciplinarycurriculum to create relationship between children school experience and informal education, using sustainable environmental education, starting from major social problems. Active Citizenship Education for sustainable and durable development can be integrated into all areas of the curriculum, especially into cross curriculum themes. It implies children and teachers involvement in authentic experiences  aimed at achieving a sustainable future. This also improves the connection between initial and continuing teacher training education. The action-research as methods is an experiencial learning of citizenship education for all the partecipants, which come from Schools  University, Political Institutions, and social organizations.
This project’s purposes are:
1. identifing analysis tools to explore territories culture, in a multidiscipinary approach.
2. developing a research model of active citizenship education
3. to develop teachers and pupils skills for planning across-the-curriculum learning experiences in active citizenship education for sustainable and durable development and care of the socio-cultural heritage
4. improving interregional and international cooperation.

EXPERES Partner di Progetto In corso University of Murcia 15/10/2015 - 14/10/2018 http://196.200.152.145/experes/

Il progetto Experes, finanziato dalla Comissione Europea nell’ambito del programma Erasmus Plus – Capacity, coinvolge 6 istituzioni europee,13 istituzioni marocchine ed è iniziato nell’ottobre 2015 e terminerà nell’ottobre del 2018.  Tra i fondamenti del progetto possiamo sottolineare i seguenti aspetti tratti dalla proposta stessa:
“Le tecnologie dell’informazione e della conoscenza hanno assunto negli ultimi anni una notevole importanza in quanto permettono di risparmiare tempo, di ridurre i vincoli spaziali, l’uso di costose strumentazioni, i vincoli legati alla gestione, ecc ... Offrono anche la possibilità di utilizzare nuove metodologie di apprendimento flessibili e adattabili, sfruttando le funzionalità interattive dei dispositivi didattici informatici e pertanto permettono anche di condurre lavori collaborativi che si basano sull'abbondanza di informazioni disponibili in rete. Se è vero che nella rete vi sono siti che promuovono  l'e-learning nel campo dell'insegnamento teorico sta anche crescendo la sperimentazione scientifica online. Questo ultimo aspetto consente agli studenti di realizzare o di  seguire esperimenti in remoto, anche nelle università marocchine di base. L'obiettivo principale del progetto è quello di implementare una piattaforma di e-learning di supporto al lavoro laboratoriale  nell'ambito delle scienze fisiche. La piattaforma, supporta diverse offerte formative di esperimenti simulati e permette una maggiore qualità degli apprendimenti degli studenti anche perché questi possono ripetere gli esperimenti virtuali tutte le volte che sia necessario, in qualsiasi momento e da qualsiasi luogo.”
Il progetto per l’Università di Bologna è condotto dal Dipartimento di Scienze dell’Educazione in collaborazione con il Dipartimento di Fisica.

HEY Partner di progetto In corso IERFOP - Onlus 01/10/2016 - 31/09/2018 http://www.hey-teachers.eu/

The project was inspired by working with professionals of the education sector. The partners of this consortium discussed the most burning needs related to the social challenges as well as those of the learners and teachers opearting in the schools cooperating with the partner organisations. The conclusion was that professionals of  education need practical tools for the  management of students (and their families) in social/relationale difficulties. This project refers to the adequacy of training approaches used by primary school’s teachers with relation to the main trends of social change in progress. These trends apply to:
Family changes and the arrival of new type of families, more complex and with more members;
Evolution of educational and existential styles;
Diversification of cultural context;
Extension of the gap between rich and poor people and the crisis of middle class;
New learning approaches and educational disadvantage.
Each of these trends, deeply connected to each other, is part of a specific social context – about liquid modernity, outlined by Bauman – that have largely lost its traditional networks of cohesion and cooperation, intensifying individualistic deviations that damage the basis of democracy and peaceful coexistence (Todorov). In this context, the school is one of the main pillar against the process of social molecularization but, in order to act efficiently, must be able to engage with different interlocutors than those of the past and different from each other for many reasons: needs, expectations, values, training models.

START Partner di progetto In corso Educational Research Institute 01/09/2016 - 28/02/2019 http://start.pei.si/

The project START is an Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership in the field of School Education running for 30 months, from September 2016 to February 2018. In line with European Commission priorities, the general objectives of the project are:
- to ensure a good start in education for all children, by enhancing the quality of ECEC and by ensuring that the benefits of ECEC are carried through to other school education levels;
- to support teachers to adopt new methods and tools for dealing with complex classroom realities and diversified groups of learners.
In the context of the needs identified at local and transnational level by the partners involved, the project proposal aims to DEVELOP INNOVATIVE APPROCHES, METHODOLOGIES AND TOOLS FOR FACILITATING CHILDREN’S TRANSITIONS across home, ECEC services and school institutions. Within this framework, the specific objectives of the project are:
1) to examine existing transition practices with different focuses at each project location in order to take into account the diversified needs of target groups in each context;
2) to involve teachers, families and local stakeholder in designing innovative practices for smoothening transitions, with special attention paid to the school success of children facing complex situations (eg. socio-economic disadvantage) and to the engagement of families at risk of social exclusion (eg. Roma);
3) to increase the competence of ECEC/school professionals by involving them in action-research and experimentation projects, with the support provided by experienced researchers;
4) to promote the educational innovation of ECEC and school institutions by experimenting new pedagogical approaches and educational methodologies that support children – especially those who are most at risk of school failure – in facing successfully transition processes;
5) to identify principles of good practices that could contribute to trans-national exchange and learning as well as to the improvement of educational policies at local, regional, national and EU level.

SALTO Partner di progetto In corso Etcharry 01/09/2016 - 30/09/2019 Da realizzare nel 2018

The "SALTO – Social Action for Life Quality Training & Tools" project is based on adapting social worker training to improve the quality of life of the elderly and/or disabled, especially by reducing the effects of behaviour-related disorders linked to illnesses, such as Alzheimer’s, as well as mental and psychiatric disorders, like autism.
Medico-social structures are “social” because they target independence and protection, social cohesion, exercising citizenship and preventing exclusion. They are “medical” because these populations require care, whether routinely or occasionally, which is essential for their daily comfort.
So, how can we combine ‘‘life projects’’ with ‘‘care projects’’ to enable the emergence of a project providing individual support and, in terms of the contribution of social work, a holistic solution satisfying the needs of users?
Implementing this solution involves breaking down the compartmentalisation observed between the healthcare and medico-social environments so as to start thinking and working in terms of co-ordinated paths. In fact, social workers intervene with these populations by providing them daily support, as well as through occupational activities. The SALTO project aims to integrate these activities as part of therapy in order to develop or maintain cognitive, motor and social skills, which are all essential to the quality of life of users, in coordination with the healthcare sector.
In order to provide a coherent and operational response to this issue which is already the subject of both theoretical and practical debate, the SALTO project brings together players with the ability, by pooling their resources, to present and combine the perspectives of researchers and field players, trainers/educators and social development specialists, healthcare and socio-medical professionals.

Blurred Lives Project – a cross-national, co-participatory exploration of cyberbullying, young people and socio-economic disadvantage. Partner di progetto In fase di avvio Stranmillis University College 4/09/2017 - 3/09/2019

The “Blurred Lives Project – a cross-national, co-participatory exploration of cyberbullying, young people and socio-economic disadvantage” will bring together five European partners (from Northern Ireland, London, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands) with specific expertise and experience in tackling cyberbullying.  
The four central SMART objectives of the project are as follows:
1. To empower young people aged 14-16 to better understand, prevent and combat cyberbullying.
2. To develop the most useful support materials for teachers, parents/carers and young people (aged 14-16) for signalling, preventing and combating cyberbullying, and to make recommendations to social networking providers.
3. To determine how the young people understand, experience and respond to the present conditions of cyberbullying.
4. To determine the relationship between socio-economic disadvantage and young people's understanding and experiences of cyberbullying and their responses/coping strategies.

The project is innovative in its focus on cyberbullying among young people in five different regions of the European Union, but also in its aim to be participatory, involving, training and empowering young people as co-researchers.  In seeking to work with young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, the study also uniquely aims to explore how these young people are affected by cyberbullying, but also to provide them with accessible, up-to-date resources to help them.

The project will involve young people in each partner region (aged 14-16) in responding to a survey of their experiences of cyberbullying, co-leading quality circle sessions and sequential focus group interviews, and helping create a comic book resource which is highly visual and engaging, as well as feeding into the Guide for Parents/Carers.

The project seeks to produce Intellectual Outputs which will really make a difference to teachers (IO1: Lessons and Guide for Teachers), to young people (IO2: Comic Book Guide for Pupils), to families (IO3: Guide for Parents/Carers) and to internet providers (IO4: Summary Recommendations).  As such this is a project which is innovative in focus and design, but which has the potential to increase understanding and improve the lives of many hundreds of young people across the five partner regions and beyond.

ESTEEM Partner di progetto In fase di avvio THE UNIVERSITY OF SHEFFIELD 1/09/2017 - 31/08/2020

Safety at work has been a field of strong interest for many decades, and the quality of training has increased, both in terms of content & delivery. However, there is a need to ensure access to training for vulnerable groups and to ensure that training is transferred to the work setting and thus effective in improving safety behaviours.

Objectives. As a result of this scenario, this project aims to: a) review and identify the barriers and facilitators that may be effective in VET training particular groups of vulnerable workers, i.e. low-skilled & migrant workers in construction; b) develop and test a Safety Training Programme (STP; O3), an innovative training model (including an Interactive Platform, O2) for the development and delivery of safety training among these groups of workers; c) develop and test a Safety Training Evaluation Device (STED; O4) that captures training transfer, i.e. that safety skills learned are transferred into daily work activities and thus results in improved safety climate and behaviours.

Number and profile of participants. During the project, we expect to train at least 140 people, namely employees (120 construction workers, focusing on migrants and those with low skills), and safety trainers and supervisors with safety responsibilities (20 people to become trainers themselves). Furthermore, 120 people will participate in the focus groups (10 people in 9 focus groups; 3 per country) and interviews (10 people per country). Moreover, the total number of people expected to attend the Multiplier events is 300 (50 per Event). The total number of visits expected to the Interactive Platform is 1,500. We also expect 20 requests for registration and 600 downloads of documents in the Tools and Methodology area of the Interactive Platform, as well as at least 15 practices uploaded from the platform.
