Multicultural Schools

Enhancing Cultural and Linguistic Treasure of Europe through Teachers

P.M.F. participates in the development of the project Multicultural Schools – under the domain of the Erasmus+ programme, KA2 Strategic Partnerships in the field of School Education.

One of the highest priorities of the project is to help prospective teachers acquire the attitudes, knowledge, skills, and dispositions to work effectively with culturally diverse students. Schools, colleges, and departments of education must assume the responsibility of preparing all teachers, regardless of race, to teach in culturally diverse classrooms.

Thus, Multicultural Schools specific objectives are:

  • Develop a handbook containing a new methodology on how to deal with multiculturalism in schools;
  • Develop an e-learning platform and a new certified online course enabling teachers to acquire new competencies;
  • Provide an e-learning software with ready-to-use materials for teachers to be used in multicultural classrooms for children among 6-13 years;
  • Promote, preserve and enhance cultural richness of European society.

P.M.F. develops an online Social Networking & Learning Platform providing an online space where institutions, teachers and parents can share and exchange tips and suggestions about teaching in multicultural classrooms and a learning area that contains a Problem-Based-Learning e-course for teachers facing challenges of multiculturalism in the classroom.
