Multiculturalism – teacher's role in the integration process of immigrant children

Rating: 5/58 users

SUMMARY
Migration is not a new phenomenon, but it is getting more relevant in our lives. Integration and multiculturalism are one of the most important elements for creating a diverse and open society. If we want to live in multi-cultural societies, it is important to teach our children how to be open-minded, tolerant and how to accept diversity. Kindergartens and schools need to cooperate in integrating immigrant children into educational system and society. Ensuring safe and encouraging multi-cultural environment is crucial for all children to develop their potentials. Strengthening values of multiculturalism and diversity can meaningfully contribute to personal development of all children (not only immigrant), their parents and teachers.

OBJECTIVES

Participants will learn how to understand different cultures and how to change stereotypes.

The organisation of the seminar was good and I enjoyed my time to Ljubljiana very much. The hotel and the venue was extremely cosy and comfortable. However, the course focused on discussion between paricipants about the different practices of the their countries but basically mentioning what is problematic. Practical tips we only heard in one out of the five days so as a teacher I suggest to add more days on practical suggestions. Visiting the schools in Maribor was an awesome idea and the people there were very hospitable, however it was more like seeing the schools than pointing out good practices of inclusion of the refugee/immigrants. For those who want to save money better not buy the whole package offer as overall we paid more than if we had joined every meal idependently.
