The Sharing Inclusive Practice Initiative is an innovation project that takes part in Ireland, it
involves teachers developing, recording and sharing inclusive practice related to children’s cultural, ethnic and belief backgrounds.
This innovative project build their bases above the interculturality, the teachers involved come from schools representing a broad range of contexts and schools communities.
The national study plan generates examples of intercultural, religious and ethical education from across Irish classrooms, this initiative generates examples of intercultural, religious and ethical education.
This innovative practices support other schools in developing their teaching and learning, as well as informing wider curriculum developments at national level.
The other project that I choose to compare with is the Edukateka project, this one takes part in Lithuania.
This innovation project mixes computer science, english and cultural learning in an activity.
It vision is to become an organisation that provide versatile, complex and high quality educational services.
Children, youth and adults benefit from this innovative learning spaces to create and develop their own projects using modern equipment with the purpose of ensure the development of youth and children self expression as well as to improve teachers competences, develop creative skills, abilities, and forms of activities.
Edukateka provides an inspiring example of a multidisciplinary and community based approach.
The main similarity between both is that the two initiatives use technology as the main tool for the development of their activities, but each one is aimed at a different group of people.
One of the differences between the two innovation projects is that the Irish one is aimed to the pupils only and the other is aimed to children, youth and adults.
In other hand we can appreciate that they focus their projects in different subjects, the first one is based on religious and ethical education and the second one is based on computer science, english and cultural learning.
MY POINT OF VIEW
I like the first innovation project because of the fact that helps to reduce the racism in class as much as possible and teaching showing different cultures through videos, I think that by this way we arouse curiosity in them.
I also find good points in the second one, like that it improves and develop things like creative skills, abilities,…
As a disadvantage I appreciate that none of them have something related with the kids with a disability, that is why I would like you to think about what would happen if there was a child with a disability in class? How can we adapt the lessons for him?
