The Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR) has activated this project to favour the implementation of literacy and personalized educational paths for 1000 unaccompanied and separated migrant children (UAMs) in various schools across Italy. The aim is to facilitate their access to school and favour a rapid process of inclusion, by intervening as soon as UAMs arrive on the national territory and before their access to ordinary school.
Linguistic literacy is facilitated using new technologies. A e-learning platform has been developed with three-level courses and various materials at disposal of teachers and students, which include also modules dedicated to the development of transversal social and civic competences, aimed at improving students’ wellbeing and strengthening their relational capacities.
The project incentivizes also other activities (art and music workshops, sports, intercultural citizenship activities, field trip, work counselling, etc.) and promotes the creation of school networks and the dissemination of good practices.
The initiative is funded by the European Commission (Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund 2014-20) and started in 2019 with a preliminary study on the condition of unaccompanied and separated migrant children in Italy, carried out by ISMU Foundation.
