Dal 2012, ci sono circa 643 000 detenuti nell'Unione europea e da allora la popolazione carceraria sta lentamente aumentando. La maggior parte di queste persone non hanno alcuna istruzione superiore, né formazione professionale o altri tipi di istruzione avanzata e hanno, anzi, competenze di base molto basse. L'educazione in carcere ha un ruolo essenziale nel promuovere la riabilitazione e rendere meno probabile la recidiva nei detenuti.

L'educazione in carcere è un argomento importante per EPALE ed è per questo che la settimana dal 25 al 29 gennaio sarà intermente dedicata al tema dell'Educazione in carcere in EPALE! Tieni d'occhio la piattaforma e le pagine Facebook e Twitter, troverai risorse interessanti e articoli scritti da esperti del settore.

 

  • Stiamo collaborando con la Rete europea delle Competenze di Base (EBSN) per offrire di tre giorni di discussione scritta sul tema dell'educazione carceraria. Clicca qui per accedere alla discussione che sarà moderata dal Dott. Joseph Giordmaina
  • Ascolteremo Annet Bakker, presidente della European Prison Education Association (nonché insegnante con 25 anni di esperienza), che parlerà dell'opportunità di andare oltre le certificazioni per la convalida dell'istruzione dei carcerati
  • L'istruttore di Yoga James Fox ha raccontato a EPALE come ha convinto i carcerati in alcune delle prigioni più difficili degli Stati Uniti a dedicarsi allo Yoga e ai suoi benefici e a come sta attuando questo progetto nelle carceri europee. La nostra intervista con James è in arrivo, guardatela!

    ... E ancora,  pubblicheremo pensieri,  risorse e altri grandi contenuti sui progetti di educazione carceraria. Tornate in EPALE tra il 25 e il 29 gennaio per la settimana dell'educazione in carcere.

    In England (and I think the rest of the UK) it has been very difficult to gain a clear understanding of the basic skills levels (literacy/numeracy) of the prison population. I have just completed a report based on initial assessments in English and maths of every new prisoner admitted in England between August 2014-15. While this is clearly something of a snapshot it is based on over 120,000 assessments. From this it is clear that prisoners' literacy levels are very poor compared to the general adult population. However, prisoners' numeracy levels are very similar to those outside prison.

    Where a high percentage of prisoners have learning difficulties, it may be a good thought to promote a course about a different way of learning for prisoners. Not always the reason behind bad results in primary school is low intelligence or bad social backgrounds. Maybe half of those with learning difficulties who end up in prison, became frustrated in school because of a misfit of teaching and learning style.

    When one focussus on this different learning style and each student's passions one could reduce resistance angainst studying an let hesitant adult learners experience success which will help them into further works.

    A Saint Brieuc, Erasmus+ s'invite en Prison

     
    Une animation et un atelier artistique sur la Grèce se sont tenus à la Maison d'Arrêt de Saint Brieuc dans le cadre de la mise en application du Programme européen Erasmus+ et en particulier du projet Aristote soutenu par le député européen Breton Alain Cadec.
     
    Une quinzaine de participants (détenus de la Maison d'Arrêt), très motivés et particulièrement intéressés par la Grèce et la peinture, se sont adonnés avec enthousiasme à la réalisation d'un tableau commun, sous la houlette de Sylvie Le Moël  Chef de projet Aristote, de Mireille Blondel bénévole artiste amateur éclairée et de Cyrille Cantin, coordinateur socio-culturel à la Maison d'Arrêt.
    Cette œuvre commune sera valorisée auprès des instances européennes.
     
    La veille, Robert Blondel bénévole et apprenant en Grec moderne avait donné une conférence sur la phalange hoplitique grecque. Le matin de la session de peinture, Sylvie Le Moël, avait également assuré une présentation générale de la Grèce ( géographie, histoire, paysages, musique).
     
    Plusieurs participants à l'atelier artistique, dont Philippe, Benoît, Alain et Pascal ont souhaité faire don au Projet Aristote de leurs propres créations "pour rester ainsi symboliquement liés à Erasmus+ même si nous sommes actuellement cantonnés entre 4 murs" comme le précisent Benoît et Pascal. 
     
    Erasmus+ appuie effectivement les animations en milieu carcéral pour créer du lien social. La journée fut un moment de partage remarquable et très convivial où l'on constate que finalement grâce en ce qui concerne l'art "tout le monde est égal face à  la toile blanche"  souligne Sylvie Le Moël.

    Hi and thank you for your comment! I hope you will join our discussion next week. It will deal with the approach needed to effectively provide basic skills training (primarily literacy and numeracy, but also digital competence if possible). We will base our discussion on a Norwegian report which you can find at http://www.vox.no/contentassets/f3a2be48fa144859bfa1d57bc76df8c7/learning_basic_skills_while_serving_time2.pdf

    Looking forward to reading about your reactions to this approach!

    Bastoy prison is a very special setting. As an ambassador of literacy improvement possibilities of people with dyslexic like traits, I appreciate the basic skills training mentioned in the article. It uses interest in the subject and gives the oppertunities to experience success in practical challanges. This is valuable for every "student", but especially for people who may have enough intelligence to learn but for whom "regular education" didn't fit. As being a dyslexic myself, I think this could be part of the problem. It struck me that in literature it seems people with likewise traits are over representated (3x more) in prison.

    In many Dutch prisons, both the work setting is different and the education possibilities are different. In 2012 we have done a pilot in 3 prisons to implement a 6 sessions course to introduce the idea that learning basic skills can be fun. Because we didn't have the oppertunities to be as close to the daily life as in Bastoy, we introduced a Multiple Intelligence test to look at the better sides of a person; this helped people to come up with a subject they think they are good at and have interest for.: their passion. This subject is than helping to make them to stay involved in the following steps in looking at reading and writing in a different way. Giving them success experiences in this. And working to a final presentation of 3 minute on there subject of passion was maybe likewise inspiring like the daily challanges in the Bastoy case. For all of them doing a presentation gave them great pride.

    In 2014, we have dissiminated this experience in a Grundtvig workshop ALIPPE. The 16 prison teachers from 10 countries have appreciated our approach. Some of them have even translated the student book in their language (Swedish, Italian, German). More information on this: www.alippe.eu.

    I am a colleague of Tanja and Kari at Vox and really do agree to your statements above.

    Motivation is a strong drive for getting started with learning. Motivation is also very individual and it is crucial to experience success.
