"It would have been ideal to run online courses on the Zoom platform during the lockdown period, but our audience are adults who have little experience of school and who live in a precarious situation. The  majority do not have a PC at their disposal. We then decided to do video sessions on Messenger several times a week so that the learners could have a chance to actively practise their language and therefore not forget what they had learnt. It was also a chance for them to communicate with each other and with the teacher."

The multidisciplinary peer-reviewed Journal of International Mobility, published by PUF and led by Agence Erasmus+ France / Éducation Formation, brings together scientific papers related to all aspects of international mobility in the context of education and training in Europe and around the world. The journal aims to improve understanding of the issues, conditions and impact of mobility in order to encourage its consideration by the researchers and political decision makers who have the authority to support it. The agency is launching its ninth call for papers for a special edition coordinated by Guillaume Tronchet (Institut d’Histoire Moderne et Contemporaine, École Normale Supérieure-PSL, Institut Convergences Migrations, France). The title of the special edition will be: "Reception of refugees, education and training: strategies, policies and practices in the context of forced mobility." We are also accepting miscellaneous articles about international mobility for education and training in Europe and around the world. These proposals can pertain to several disciplinary fields: sociology, education sciences, history, geography, anthropology, economics, language teaching, etc. Two other sections are also open to proposals for papers: reading notes and a section on case studies

The grassroots project which I am currently running, started in May 2017 in Rome (Italy). It is a bottom-up initiative which entails cultural and artistic activities, Italian classes, one-to-one learning support and legal assistance. The migrants involved (almost 40) come from sub-Saharan countries, as well as from Somalia, Pakistan, Iran and Iraq. Some of them have very good educational backgrounds, while others never had the opportunity to go to school in their home countries and have started school for the first time in Italy.

Chawan Ali was forced to flee Iraq in 2015, at just 15 years of age. After years of fighting and the threat of ISIS, her family were scared for their future. Chawan is now in the process of transforming her own life through study; helping to support and transform her family situation as well as working with Wrexham Town of Sanctuary to transform the way refugees and asylum seekers are welcomed in the town and across Wales. Her story provides a great example of how support for refugees and ESOL provision transforms lives. Chawan’s story is explored further in a special podcast series, Change Your Story, which was produced for Adult Learners’ Week in Wales.

For Florian and "migrare" the crisis resulted in a tremendous innovative push, as they had to deal with issues for which there simply wasn’t enough time during normal business operations. They had never considered using digital tools for our course offerings up until that point. Now with the “new reality” with Coronavirus, they were forced to deal with these questions for the first time. This allowed them to achieve a new level of quality for their services.

As a result of learning theories and developing technologies, the change of learning and teaching approach showed us that as learning is individualized, it may be performed not only in class but in anywhere and everywhere. These kind of e-learning environments became more common. However, e-learning applications have disadvantages, and these disadvantages need to be covered with face-to-face education environments, thus, blended learning approach emerges as a requirement at this point. While implementing blended learning, which is appreciated by higher education institutionsandused to fulfill the needs of individuals, using appropriate learning strategies for learners at the right time is a necessity

Developed literacy, numeracy and digital skills are closely related to active engagement in democratic life, to citizenship and the ability to exercise judgment critically & independently. A low level of such competences can leave a person at a disadvantage not only in the labour market (around 90% of jobs are estimated to need at least some level of digital skills in the EU) but also in society.

Last week, the third staff training of Key-Co System project should have taken place in Palermo. Staff of partner organizations would have gathered in Sicily from Spain, Germany and Greece to take part in a very inspiring experience led by the members of Giocherenda, an artistic collective of young migrants come to Italy from Africa, and with the participation of Massimiliano Schirinzi, teacher at the University of Palermo.

The pandemic caused by COVID-19 forced us to change all plans and to postpone this training, but we think that behind this occurrence there is a hidden chance.

Integrating minority, migrant & refugee children at European schools & society – Online

According to the United Nations High Commissioner on Refugees (UNHCR), over 1 million asylum-seekers and migrants reached the European Union via the Mediterranean in 2015 alone; that is, nearly five times as many as in 2014. The UN’s refugee agency estimates that 84 percent are from countries that, because of war or other circumstances, qualify them as refugees. This overwhelming refugee crisis poses many immediate challenges that should be addressed at different levels within the European Union.

Intercultural Training for Educators is the result of a European Commission Erasmus+ grant we were awarded 2 years ago, with partners from the UK, Finland, Italy and Greece. We started out looking at refugee and newly arrived migrant learners, but our needs analysis research showed that educators of migrant adult learners more broadly (including international students) felt that they did not have the tools to support learners or manage intercultural classrooms.
