Kaisiadorys School of Business and Technology has promoted the project “Peculiarities of Intercultural Dialogue”Number 2018-1-LT01-KA102-046705, which was organized in cooperation with AMFI INTERNATIONAL, from October 20th to 27th, 2018.
The 6 teachers involved followed a full programme characterized by in-class moments as well as study visits aimed at learning the following:
how to classify an intercultural class
how to recognize conflict
how to solve intercultural conflict
draft an interculturality plan
program an intercultural day at school
Byram’s model of intercultural competency
what Italian schools are doing to guarantee inclusion
the rules of inclusion
Individualize vocational training process
Motive students, especially from natural minorities, using improved educational, psychological and communication with students skills
They had a chance of getting familiar with different theories related to interculturality, such as Byram's Model of Intercultural Understanding and got the chance to visit 6 different schools, where they were able to talk to their colleagues in Italy and observe their methodologies to approach to intercultural understanding. They also visited several schools of the area:
- Scuola "G. D'Annunzio", Celano
- Liceo Artistico Bellisario, Avezzano
- Scuola Collodi-Marini, Avezzano
- Scuola Mazzini-Fermi, Avezzano
- CPIA, Avezzano
During this period participants got familiar with the staff and locals of the hosting organization AMFI - Agenzia per la Mobilità e la Formazione Internazionale. Participants achieved the project’s main goal: to improve vocational training teachers’ abilities of giving lectures and managing classes, where are national minorities’ students, to encourage tolerance and to diminish racism and discrimination in schools.
At the end of their Training Programme, participants received a Certificate of Attendance.
