SIMPLIFY

Special Educational Needs Maps & Practices for

Life Inclusion of Youth

KA2 – Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices

Recent estimates place the number of children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) at 15 million, and despite a political consensus on the importance of inclusive education, a “mutual learning and the sharing of best practice on the provision of support for children with SEN are lacking at the European level”. On the other side, inclusive education good practices around Europe exists and are implemented but the level of exchange and acknowledgement is still low also within teachers, parents and professionals. Often, stakeholders’ restraints depends on lack of interest and difficulty to read, interpret and understand complex, technical and redundant documentation. SIMPLIFY aims to overcome these obstacles making easy, accessible and understandable the main concepts and practices of inclusive education for young people with special educational needs.


RULEs

Real-life Use Literacy Excercises

KA2 – Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices

The transfer of written information is a fundamental pillar of modern society. Although formal literacy, i.e. the ability to decode and understand letters and numbers, is well acquired throughout the western world, a clear divide among European countries is shown with regards to the level of “functional literacy” (FL), which indicates the ability to exploit literacy abilities and benefit from them in order to improve one’s own condition, as well as the condition of her society. The number of functional illiterates in Europe was estimated roughly at 80 million, being them less frequent in Sweden (about 8% of total population) and more common in Portugal (about 40%). Although there is obvious correlation between functional literacy and aspects such as economic performance and inclusion, there is generally a lack of agreement in its definition, and the subject seems understudied. The General objective of RULE will be to help accesso to knowledge and job opportunities, as well as to improve the overall awareness of the financial, scientific and professional world through enhancing the comprehension of complex pieces of texts of bureaucratic or scientific origin.


 

MacroYouth

Macro Region for Youth

KA1 – Learning Mobility of Individuals

In 2014, the European Commission and the European Council have adopted the EU Strategy for the Adriatic and Ionian Region to create synergies and fostering integration among the eight countries that it covers. EUSAIR is a long-term strategy that lays the groundwork today, but their effects will be tangible, in terms of development and stabilization of the area, in a decade. ACC considers necessary the directly involvement of youth for a success of the strategy, because the current generation of young people (18-30 years old) will be the real beneficiaries of the results and impact. The applicant launched a survey with the aim to understand the level of youth awareness about EUSAIR. The survey results show a very low youth awareness of EUSAIR’s strategy despite a quite high interest in cooperate with those countries. The questionnaire was published in the website of ACC , it was disseminated thanks the support of Universities, youth centers and associations active on Marche Region area and it was the main reference for the development of MACROYOUTH project.
