Culturally Inclusive Schools: Celebrating diversity, teaching common values and fostering intercultural competence among youth

Project description

New framework for intercultural competences at schools

Our culture can shape identity and communication. Effective intercultural communication has become more important for schools in Europe facing increasing student diversity. Building more efficient intercultural competencies in the classrooms requires measurable, conceptualised models based on empirical studies, and targeted educational approaches. To fill this gap, the EU-funded INCLUDed project will study a heuristic framework based on an ecological systems theory. This will be applied to a nationally representative sample of 14-year-olds in Italy. The aim will be to analyse, develop, adjust, and validate multifaceted measurement instruments of intercultural competence and cultural diversity. It will allow for the examination of effectiveness of approaches in different cultural school settings to improve educational policies.
