Objectives

Aims

INTELed aims to support special and general education teachers in acquiring knowledge and skills about the use of multi-sensory technology for learning and assessment, for addressing the needs of SEN children in inclusive education contexts. This will be obtained through an innovative training method, driven by theories of embodied cognition, research on embodied learning, and the premise of multi-sensory technologies. The method will be accompanied by evidence of its effectiveness through pilot studies in schools at the four partner-countries. The partners will work on presenting the pedagogical framework, the training model and instructional materials, and the procedures for implementation and evaluation. The project aims to form a sustainable Community of Practice (CoP) around the INTELed method.
