This training course aims to reflect and examine different approaches, methods and best techniques to encourage inclusion in the classroom, since it is an important goal to reach in every type of school. The keywords of this training are empathy, membership, and cooperation, as characterising factors of inclusive education.
The new edition of the course “Special needs and inclusive education, the Italian experience of overcoming segregation” took place in Palermo from 26/11/2023 to 02/12/2023. The participants came from all across Europe, with Rita and Rūta from Gymnasium of President Antanas Smetona in Lithuania, Livia from Ammattiopisto Live in Finland, and participants coming from two different Spanish schools: Raquel, María Paz and Josefina from Escuela Oficial de Idiomas de Valladolid; Elena and Aberto from Verge de Cortes.
We introduced the course talking about inclusive education from different perspectives, focusing on their various benefits, but we also defined the terms of exclusion, segregation and integration to see the differences of meaning between them.
