WE ARE COLORFUL Project

WE ARE COLORFUL is a project that aims to see diversity as an asset and an added value. In particular, this project intends to address the contemporary European reality of schools which are characterized by students with heterogeneous profiles, differing in cultural background, economic status, and social inequalities.

It was noted that in many schools they found a lack of knowledge of the cognitive, social and emotional development process among their professionals, and often lack tools to address differences in learning processes, neurodevelopmental disorders, or sociocultural diversity and complex intercultural relationship processes.
In order to prevent, identify and reduce problems that arise in classrooms due to differences among students, WE ARE COLORFUL project was developed by identifying 4 independent but interacting categories of discriminating dimensions, namely neurodevelopmental disorders, learning processes and styles, cultural diversity, and...

In order to prevent, identify and reduce problems that arise in classrooms due to differences among students, WE ARE COLORFUL project was developed by identifying 4 independent but interacting categories of discriminating dimensions, namely neurodevelopmental disorders, learning processes and styles, cultural diversity, and social inequality, in order to work on these within schools and teacher staffing.In this frame, two important goals of WE ARE COLORFUL project are:•	The creation of toolkits full of resources and strategies to help teachers, staff working in schools, and any person involved in educational activities with groups of children between the ages of 7 and 10 years to identify learning difficulties and socio-affective problems and address them appropriately.•	The creation of videos and workshops to promote cultural diversity by aiming to raise awareness of the topic, the variability of intellectual abilities and developmental differences among students, and to promote their potential as a factor of social inclusion.To learn about the project, check WE ARE COLORFUL website: https://wearecolourful.eu/

Stories4ALL

Stories4ALL is a project that aims to support the educational community by combining elements of inclusion, creativity and digital technologies, such as image design, editing, digital story creation tools and 3D printing. The idea is to explore alternative learning pathways designing educational materials appropriate for students with visual impairments, focused on developing creativity and digital skills, fostering feelings of solidarity and inclusiveness.

Typically, educational materials are designed for sighted students, which means that they may not be accessible for a part of the population. Students with vision impairment may feel isolated in the learning environment, which can have an impact on learning.
There is no such thing as a "typical" visually impaired student: impairment can result from a variety of conditions, and its impact will depend on the type, extent, and timing of vision loss, and the impact of disability on learning varies significantly depending...

Typically, educational materials are designed for sighted students, which means that they may not be accessible for a part of the population. Students with vision impairment may feel isolated in the learning environment, which can  have an impact on learning.There is no such thing as a "typical" visually impaired student: impairment can result from a variety of conditions, and its impact will depend on the type, extent, and timing of vision loss, and the impact of disability on learning varies significantly depending on the nature and extent of vision loss. Therefore it is necessary to support educators in teaching methods, adapt educational materials so that they are fully accessible, and create an environment of solidarity and inclusion within students. In fact, creating tactile materials and using 3D printable designs can increase accessibility for people with visual impairments.Stories4ALL main goals are:•	The creation and/or conversion of educational materials and stories into a format to be fully accessible.•	Providing support in the development of digital skills such as story design, image design/editing, and 3D printing, to all the educational community namely families, teachers and students.•	The creation of a project to design a new story or the transformation of an existing story into visual-audio-tactile (3D printed) material.•	Training families and teachers of students with visual impairments on how to use the Guide with related digital skills development.•	The creation of a support system for children with visual impairments and their families through activities that aim to strengthen feelings of inclusion and integration through quality leisure time and strengthening their bondsTo learn about the project, check Stories4ALL website: https://stories4all.eu/
