WORKSHOP IC BOZZANO
February 12, 2021
Remote workshop via Google Meet – Brindisi, Italy
The workshop achieved the goal of disseminating and implementing the concept of inclusion, as it involved other members of the Comprehensive Institute with different tasks (teachers of the two school levels, administrative assistants and school collaborators).
Moreover, the meeting, even if at a distance, led to the meeting and comparison of different figures, normally “forced” by their roles not to communicate except for matters relating to the school service. In this case, however, people with various cultures and backgrounds and with various sensitivities discussed and reflected together on the concept of inclusion, bringing their own experience not only professional but also human.
In particular, administrative staff and school caretakers, who are usually involved only in the operational phases of the projects, enjoyed being part of a moment of conceptual reflection. The participants expressed very favorable opinions on the experience, underlining how significant it was; all agreed in recognizing both the innovation relating to the concept of inclusion that the Index proposes and the importance of a project that requires the involvement of the entire school community and a rethinking of the Institute’s organization.
For these reasons, everyone has declared their willingness to collaborate also in the future It can therefore be said that the workshop has had results that go beyond those expected as perhaps for the first time high levels of understanding, collaboration and communion of purpose have been achieved between figures with different roles; moreover, the whole group has reached the awareness that by working together and having more possibilities to compare their opinions, levels of inclusion are built day after day, to make our school more and more welcoming.
