Awareness Raising Tool
The foundation of all the above-mentioned tools is an awareness module, which helps teachers explore their own identity and positionality, based on the premise that teachers are not neutral outsiders to the students’ learning process, but are part of the classroom dynamics.
The incorporation of the development of an awareness-raising tool into our project is a key differentiator from other approaches towards digital innovation. As a digital guided journey to be individually taken by educators, the tool will allow them to:
• examine their abilities and competences for inclusion and identify areas for upskilling
• formulate a deeper understanding of what inclusion means within the context of their specific classroom, considering the unique diversity of students and their backgrounds
• reflect on their own identity and their positionality with respect to their students, with the aim of better integrating themselves into their own classrooms
