After the debate among the participants, stimulated by the questions proposed and the Swot analysis, the following opinions and strengths emerged regarding the usefulness of a tool for self-assessment of inclusive skills, in summary:
It is a tool that generates new stimuli and opportunities for professional growth.
It is a real opportunity to test your teaching method on a practical basis.
It is a concrete stimulus to question oneself in order to confront the other.
It is an opportunity that allows you to work synergistically as a team.
It encompasses everything that represents inclusiveness, examines inclusion from many points of view, in general and in detail.
As regards the threats and weaknesses, the participants identified in summary:
It is a tool whose use if left to personal initiative, therefore it can remain unused.
Sometimes, a path of personal self-evaluation can lead to a lack of shared dialogue.
It is a tool that must be disseminated as much as possible for it to become truly profitable, otherwise it remains a weak tool.
It is necessary to identify and define precise times for the implementation of the self-assessment, cadenced throughout the school year and subsequently plan learning paths that are well defined within the institutional meetings.
Finally, the opportunities that have emerged concern, in summary:
It is a useful tool to expand the possibilities of confrontation with colleagues in a vertical manner.
It makes the use of innovative tools functional.
It favors collaboration, the sharing of intentions and, therefore, teamwork.
It creates meeting opportunities to share the various problems and common paths, it allows you to get out of the classic institutional role and makes attention to new languages more feasible.
