About the Project
The project contributed to make the teaching and learning of history and citizenship at schools more inclusive and accessible for learners with special educational needs and disabilities. It has enhanced equity, diversity, and inclusion of educational systems overall, while strengthening the profile of teaching professions and the quality through mobility and cross-border cooperation. The project lasted for a total of 36 months, and it finished in September 2018. EUROCLIO worked with several associations and organizations from six different countries throughout Europe. The Armenian member organization (CIVITAS) participated, as well as schools from Portugal (School Cluster of Coimbra and Montemor-o-Velho), and Slovenia (Zavod za gluhe in ngalusne Ljubliana) and two institutions of higher education from the Netherlands (Hogeschool van Amsterdam) and Norway (Norges Teknisk-Naturvitenskapelige Universitet). The consortium worked together to produce tailored educational resources, build the capacity of educators, build more awareness of the importance of inclusive and citizenship education, and create a transferable model on the implementation of strategies for inclusion that can be adapted for use in other subjects as well. While the project addressed all learners, it concentrated on learners from known vulnerable groups, with special educational needs and disabilities. In particular, Blind or Partially Sighted or Deaf or Hard-of-Hearing and Motivation and Learner Variability target groups.
