Der Fokus des Projekts lag darin, eine der größten Herausforderungen für Lehrpersonen in ganz Europa zu untersuchen: Der Einbezug von allen Kindern im Unterricht, insbesondere von jenen, die als “schwer erreichbar” (hard to reach) gesehen werden können. Dies können sowohl Kinder mit Migrationshintergrund, Fluchterfahrung als auch mit Behinderung oder andere Kinder, die im Unterricht oftmals “übersehen” werden, sein. Um die Unterrichtspraxis zu verbessern, wurde die kooperative Aktionsforschung als Methode gewählt. Hierbei kooperierten Lehrpersonen und Schüler*innen aktiv als Forschungspartner*innen mit Universitäten.

The project builds on the findings of an earlier EU funded project “Responding to diversity by engaging with students’ voices: a strategy for teacher development” https://eustudentsvoices.wordpress.com. Through the earlier project a model was developed, the ‘Inclusive Inquiry’, which is a model for the development of learning and teaching in schools. The model was developed in collaboration with secondary schools. This new project aims to trial the model’s use in primary schools and to monitor the impact that such an approach has on students’ engagement and on teachers’ thinking and practices. At the same time, it involves training children as researchers to help develop inclusive practices in schools. The project uses collaborative action research as its methodology and involves three cycles. The first cycle involves the pilot phase where children, teachers and researchers will work collaboratively to train children as researchers and to implement the “Inclusive Inquiry” model. During the second cycle, five additional schools in each country will be involved in using the model in their schools whilst the partner schools will expand its use across the whole school. In the final cycle of the project all 30 schools will use the model extensively in their schools and disseminate the project’s findings to other schools in each of the countries.

To prevent the spreading of COVID-19 pandemic, most governments across the world have taken measures to close schools, resulting in distance learning. During this time, it has become clear that different school realties can impact students’ education and widen existing differences between students even more, which has brought issues of educational justice and equal opportunity to the fore.
While many schools have risen to the challenge and developed effective distance learning forms, others have fallen behind, leaving some learners without access to quality education. Studies have shown that the COVID-19 crisis has exacerbated the exclusion of students with disabilities from education, showing they are least likely to benefit from distance learning. Teachers had to adapt to new pedagogical concepts and modes of delivery of teaching for which they either have not been trained in or did not have sufficient guidance or resources on how to include students with disabilities in distance learning.
Responding to this problem, the project “Digitalisation and inclusive education: Leaving no one behind in the digital era” (DigIn), will increase the participation of students with various disabilities in digital education by strengthening the profiles of teachers. The goal is to empower and professionalise teachers from various age groups and different school types not only in the field of digital education but also in inclusive education.
