Project results

Output 1: Report on learning needs

The first project results are ready to be published! This is a report on the learning needs among stakeholders of primary education in Norway, Greece, Italy and Slovenia (especially teachers, parents and school leaders). The synthesis report summarizes findings from surveys in these four countries and will form the basis of the methodology and practical toolkit to be developed in the next stages of the project:

Output 2: OpenEYE Methodology

The OpenEYE Methodology is based on the findings of the needs report among stakeholders in the education of newly arrived students at primary school level. Here we present pedagogical principles and practical examples of teaching approaches especially tailored to this target group, focusing on the potential of art and history to support language learning.

An example from the workshops of the Museum of Greek Children’s Art, described in the Methodology

Output 3: The OpenEYE Toolkit

The OpenEYE learning toolkit was designed following the guidelines of the OpenEYE learning methodology, and presents learning activities that can be used in both formal or non-formal learning settings. It addresses educators who work in formal and non-formal settings with learners with refugee or migrant backgrounds in the age-range 6–12, aiming at improving their language skills in the host country’s language and facilitating their integration into the school community. The OpenEYE Toolkit can serve as an inspiration or guidance for educators.

Output 4: The OpenEYE Handbook

The OpenEYE Handbook is a result of the project “Open Education for Young Europeans through History, Art and Cultural Learning”, summarising and presenting the learning methodology and learning toolkit produced by the project team, as well as recommendations for their optimal implementation in formal and non-formal settings, and their integration and mainstreaming in primary education.
