TOPIC & CONTENT
The world of non-formal pedagogical methods to raise awareness about diversity is huge and so is the variety of tools that can be used to work in it. During the training course in Berlin, we noticed how many of us already knew the tools used by the organisers, but maybe with slight differences. We agreed on the fact that these differences, even if small and apparently not so meaningful, could be very helpful when the context in which you are working and the target group change.This is how we got the idea of the IncluKit: a tool for all the “categories” of people working on the issues of diversity through non-formal approaches, in particular in the field of migrations but not only; an “open-book” in constant evolution, through the experiences, contributions and improvements of whoever feels to have something to share with us on the topic.
PEDAGOGICAL APPROACH & METHOD
We will start our work with a research fase, with the aim of collecting as much tools as we can. We will creat a dropbox folder to share the results of our researches and then start to put all the material together, dividing it into useful chapters, according to a maintopic or a similar target group. We will also create an email address where all the people willing to contribute to the project could send their ideas. When the first version of the open-book will be ready, we will publish it on the blog of Migration and Inclusion, from where whoever will be able to download it for free, as it will be an open source.
The goal of this project is trying to give an opportunity to improve the job of people working on the issues of diversity, in particulat in contexts related to migration, through non-formal pedagogical approaches, in order to strenghten the impact of the tools on their target group.
The target group of our project concerns all the people working in the field of migrations and inclusion, but in a wider perspective, also people working on other forms of diversity as, for example, gender-based issues. In fact, the book will provide an explanation about how the different tools can be used to fight against many forms of stereotypes and prejudices related to various social issues.
EVALUATION (HOW TO DO IT?)
When downloading the IncluKit, people will be kindly asked to fill a short survey that they will automatically receive via email. The form will include questions about the reason why they are downloading the open-book, what they hope to find in it and how they plan to use it.
A second survey will follow after a couple of months to ask if they were satisfied by the IncluKit, how they used it in the end and if they have suggestions to improve it.
