3. Support to learners

3.5. Learning and assessment

Teachers should be allowed the flexibility to adapt and personilise teaching to meet learners' diverse needs. Learner-centred approaches, including more active and interactive techniques, such as enquiry- and project-based teaching and learning and cooperative learning have proven to be beneficial. School and class organisation, including the use of space and time, should support the variety of student needs and teaching methods.

INCLUD-ED Interactive Groups

Interactive Groups is one of the Successful Educational Actions (SEAs) identified in the research project INCLUD-ED. INCLUD-ED analysed educational strategies that contribute to overcoming inequalities and promote social cohesion, and those generating social exclusion, particularly focusing on vulnerable and marginalised groups. Interactive Groups are used to improve the education of children and youth in different contexts. They consist of grouping students in a class into small heterogeneous groups, each of them supported by an adult. Each of these groups is organised around four or five students, in a heterogeneous way regarding ability level, gender, culture, language and ethnicity. This example provides an understanding of IG and the results of their practice.

The CARMA Toolkit: A step-by-step guide for implementing collaborative learning to increase student motivation and participation

The CARMA Toolkit fosters collaborative learning approaches in schools, based on non-formal learning (NFL) techniques, for learners who have been identified as being at risk of early school leaving and/or low achievement. The Toolkit provides practical resources for classroom practices and to transform school cultures to improve student motivation and participation. Involvement of the wider community in supporting collaborative learning is also encouraged. A Competence Assessment Model supports teachers to assess learners’ collaborative skills. A teacher’s diary to track implementation and learner progress accompanies the Toolkit.. The Toolkit is available in full and short versions in 8 languages English, Spanish, Italian, French, German, Portuguese, Dutch and Turkish.
