The INTELed Teacher Professional Development Programme (TPD) has been successfully enacted and completed in Palermo, Italy, at CESIE.
In Italy, thirty-nine (39) special and general education teachers had a unique opportunity to participate in three
(3), half-day training workshops, which aimed at supporting them in acquiring knowledge and skills about the
use of multi-sensory and embodied technologies in inclusive educational contexts. The training workshops
started on December 17th, 2018 and ended in January 18th, 2019.
The participating teachers were divided
knowledge. Finally, to better understand if Kinect technologies can be useful in their daily practice, the
teachers were divided into groups for a brainstorming activity. During the brainstorming teachers reflected on
how INTELed methodology and motion sensors could be introduced in their classes, what are the methods
teachers already use and those that they would like to introduce. At the end of the reflective activity, they all
agreed on the importance of movement for learning.
