Multilingual materials for children with a migrant background: AVIOR project’s outcomes published
The AVIOR – Multilingual Material for children with a migrant background in Europe project issues its final outcomes that are now published on the project web-page. Among the main outputs, a selection of open source bilingual materials and a user guide for the implementation of multilingual learning activities in the classroom are now available.
AVIOR-project took place from December 2016 until August 2019 and aimed at improving the basic numeracy and literacy skills of migrant children and to reduce the achievement gap between native and non-native pupils in Europe.
By organising study visits partners got inspired by good practices in each other’s countries and by conducting case studies the consortium explored how AVIOR could be applied at local schools and how parents could be involved in this process. Eventually, the selection, design and translation of 25 bilingual materials were realised in 14 different languages, which were tested in the six partner countries, Croatia, Estonia , Germany, Greece, Italy and The Netherlands.
