Summary

TOGETHER WE CAN OVERCOME BARRIERS: Strategy for the equity inclusion of young people with albinism at the center and in the classroomThe main objective of the strategic partnership of school education field will be the development of innovation through high quality results for students with albinism and/or visual impairment in the Primary Education, according with Erasmus + priorities and the Declaration on the Promotion of citizenship and common values of freedom, tolerance and non-discrimination through education, 17 March 2015 ("the Paris Declaration")This project consists on a solid partnership, whose bases were laid in 2012 and in recent years has jointly developed several projects Erasmus +. That experience has enabled us to strengthen and consolidate this European structure.The partners whose will develope this project are: Danish Association of Albinism –DFFA (DENMARK), Norwegian association of albinism (NFFA) (NORWAY), Albinit (ITALY), and As. ALBA (SPAIN). All entities has a national scope, experience and high qualified educatie workteams. They will be responsibles to develope the high innovative intellectual outputs adapted to students with albinism and the educational community.To this end, many results will be created to ensure the full development of these students with special needs in educational , social and personal areas. These results will be very different (from training of teachers, ICT, multimedia resources adapted, including new tools ...) and will affect different members of the educational community. However all of them are based on a collaborative innovative educational methodology.It must been noted both intellectual outputs. The first one will be the “Guide for Training of Educational Environment for Students with Albinism and/or visual impairment in the Plan of Attention to Diversity”, which will include:- A Pedagogical Guide that will provide guidelines to each one of school agents, and especially teachers, in working methods for the development of key competencies of students with albinism through its inclusion in equity.- Content Guide, increasing knowledge of users on the theoretical content and resources needed for the inclusion of students with albinism and/or visual impairmentThe second one will be the “Curricular development for the inclusion of students with albinism through non significant curricular adaptations”. A specific curricular development for these students will be created from the perspective of professional intervention of teachers in the third level of curricular development in accordance with the regulatory framework of the European Union.To develop this project, 4 transnational meetings will be made in the headquarters of each partner. Also it will serve to see on site best practices in the participating countries, visiting the centers of the collaborating schools and meeting with their staff.To strengthen the impact, a multiplier event will take place (in Spain) in order to disseminate the intellectual products of the project and publicize the Erasmus Plus Program participation in this project. It will promote the replication of this multiplier event in other countries. Several spanish schools will colaborate as a pilot experience helping the implementation of the spected results.To achieve all these goals and develop these results, we have a two years work plan where the four associations of people with albinism and collaborating entities (primary schools, teachers, European associations, institutions of reference in the field of visual impairment, education authorities, etc. )The partners will promote using the results of this project in all schools with students with albinism and/or visual impairments. Also the European Albinism Federation will support the project disseminationThe dissemination plan of the project will publicize to other stakeholders the most relevant results of the project so they can be used by others, adapted and replicated, extending itself to the highest number of beneficiaries.This project is expected to have an impact on all students with albinism in Europe. Currently it has been estimated at some 50,000 people in Europe, but the impact of this initiative will be not only on this target group. Also the results will impact the entire educational community, affecting the entire classroom and improving the quality of teaching methodologies in the classroom. It will promote a education more participative, collaborative and based on ICTs and new technologies.
