On Tuesday 8-5-2018 and Wednesday 9-5-2018 the Erasmus+ «AVIOR» delegation visited the premises of Primary and Secondary Education of Central Macedonia.
This project seeks to reduce disparities in learning outcomes in basic literacy and numeracy skills between native and non-native primary school children in Europe by:
- developing cost-effective approaches to produce multilingual literacy and numeracy learning resources for migrant children;
- building teacher professional competence to create inclusive multilingual classrooms;
- creating informal local teacher/parent collaborative networks to enhance the participation of migrant parents in strengthening their children’s basic numeracy and literacy skills and
- broadening the awareness of teacher trainers, school leaders and policy makers about the benefits of mother tongue and multilingual education for migrant children.
First, the Regional Director of Primary and Secondary Education of Central Macedonia, M. Ananiadis Panagiotis welcomed the members of ΑVIOR.
Afterwards, the Head of Primary Education in the Regional Directorate of Central Macedonia M. Akritidis Nikolaos described thoroughly the humanitarian crisis since 2015 with migrant and refugee flows, which fled to the E.U. by crossing the Mediterranean.
