Regolamento 2018: NAO For Social Inclusion in Education
Humanoids are an integral part of our daily life.
In this season NAO is asked to help us to improve inclusion in education.
What is inclusion?
Inclusion can be defined as the act or state of being part of something larger. In a social context, inclusion means every person has the possibility to participate fully and equally in all social Processes - right from the beginning and regardless of individual skills, ethnic or social origin, sex or age. “Inclusion is something which cannot be done to people, it is something in which people are actively involved” (Norwich, 1999). By valuing and respecting human diversity, the practice of inclusion fosters a sense of community and belonging, enabling all people to participate in every area of life.
What is inclusion in education?
Educationally inclusive institutions are ones in which the learning, achievements, attitudes and well being of all learners matter. They are able to engender a sense of community and belonging, and also offer new opportunities to learners who may have experienced previous difficulties. This does not mean that they treat all learners the same way. Rather, it involves taking account of learners’ varied life experiences and needs. Educational inclusion is about equal opportunities for all learners, whatever their age, gender, ethnic origin, religious belief, care status, impairment, sexuality, attainment or social or economic background. It pays particular attention to the provision made for, and the achievement of, different
groups of learners. However, it also goes much further and is about tackling the underachievement and exclusion of groups who have been marginalized or disadvantaged in the past, through taking positive action and through the targeting of resources to ensure that they have their rights upheld.
