PLEIADE project aims at strengthening the role of the teacher and tackle school disadvantages, by improving teachers’ ability to design learning activities that foster collaboration and inclusion of students.
During the first year of the project, a blended training initiative for teachers was designed and is currently being delivered to a group of teachers from schools located in Bulgaria, Cyprus, Greece and Italy. Teachers are learning about collaboration for inclusion through a gamified platform.
PLEIADE partner Marilina Lonigro, teacher at the Rocca Bovio Palumbo school, presented the PLEIADE Project at the EDEN Virtual Annual Conference 2021, hosted by UNED, Madrid, Spain.
The presentation, entitled "PLEIADE in a nutshell", was given during the Synergy Session of the Annual Conference on 24 June 2021 and was attended by 25 participants in Zoom, while another 52 watched on YouTube.
The first Short Joint Staff Training Event (SJSTE) of the PLEIADE project is scheduled between June 17th and June 25th, 2021 on the PLEIADE gamified platform. The event was supposed to be held face-to-face but due to the COVID-related safety measures it has been rescheduled as an online syncronous meeting. Participation is restricted to project participants, but the June 23rd session is open to the public and features a round table with international experts on collaborative learning, inclusion, learning design, gamification.
