Are you a teacher? Are you interested in intercultural education? Here’s the perfect free training opportunity for you!

As part of the RE.MA.C. project, CESIE is offering primary and secondary school teachers a training opportunity in the months of March and April.

In Italy, the project brought together teachers, native Italian students, and students with migratory backgrounds. The main objective was to develop teaching materials that utilize new technologies to create inclusive learning opportunities and, consequently, transform schools into places where students and teachers understand, respect, and accept everyone, regardless of diversity.

The training we offer involves teachers from all primary school classes and the first class of lower secondary school. It aims to initiate a reflective teaching practice based on the development of intercultural communicative competence in the classroom. The involved teachers will design and conduct teaching segments that take into account the principles of intercultural education and techniques for teaching Italian as a second language (L2), and will experiment with some distinctive features of intercultural education. Additionally, at the end of the training, participating teachers will be able to use MILAGE Learn + 2.0, a mobile application (App) that allows students to access a wide range of teaching content both during curriculum hours and extracurricular hours. This enables students to work collaboratively both inside and outside the school walls. Teachers will have access to their portfolio, automatically generated by the App.

Audience: Teachers from all primary school classes and the first class of lower secondary school.

What you will learn:

  • Developing intercultural communicative competence in the classroom.
  • Designing and conducting teaching segments based on the principles of intercultural education and Italian L2.
  • Using MILAGE Learn + 2.0, a mobile app that allows students to access a wide range of teaching content.

Methodology:

  • Critical literacy.
  • Technology-based learning.
  • Intercultural education.
  • CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning).
  • Italian L2.

Course structure:

  • 5 meetings for a total of approximately 16 hours.
  • 1 face-to-face meeting (March 11, 4:00-6:00 PM) at the CESIE headquarters in Palermo.
  • 3 synchronous online sessions (three to four hours each).
  • 1 face-to-face meeting (approximately two hours) within the first decade of April.

Training content:

  • Introduction to the RE.MA.C. Project.
  • Intercultural education.
  • RCFDC (Reference Framework of Competences for Democratic Culture) and CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages – QCER).
  • CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) and SL (Second Language) theories.

  • RE.MA.C. LAB, Repository, and MILAGE Platform & App.
  • Presentation and preparation of lessons that teachers will conduct autonomously in their classes.
  • Presentation of trainer’s work, training evaluation, and certificates.

Resources targeting all project target groups will also be employed: teachers, language teachers, and students with migratory backgrounds. These resources emphasize criteria of authenticity, multimodality, and interactivity, ensuring motivating, meaningful, and creative learning experiences. The digital aspect is not the focus of the training but rather its culmination, fitting into the much sought-after learner autonomy.
