Erasmus+ KidLe project aims to promote the inclusion of migrant children through intercultural games

The Erasmus+ KidLe project - Developing an intercultural game as a pedagogical tool for the inclusion of pupils with migrant background in new learning environments - had its kick-off meeting in January 2024.

Over the course of two years, the project team will co-construct, together with educators, teachers, parents and children, games that aim not only to integrate, but also to promote the development and learning of migrant children.

Among the possible impacts of the project, its coordinator, Cecília Aguiar (CIS-Iscte) highlights "the promotion of social, communicational and intercultural skills in children between the ages of 4 and 8". It also aims to promote the intercultural skills of educators, teachers and parents, as well as their ability to use games as educational tools.

The project team is made up of 6 institutions, based in 5 different countries, with diverse and complementary profiles. It includes two higher education institutions (Iscte-Instituto Universitário de Lisboa and the University of Limassol, Cyprus), two NGOs (Inter Aktion, Austria; and Sirius, Belgium), a company (Eurospeak, Ireland) and a public kindergarten (Agios Spyridon, Cyprus). In addition to Cecília Aguiar, the team at Iscte also includes Joana Alexandre, Nadine Correia, Patrícia Arriaga, Ricardo Rodrigues (CIS-Iscte) and Isabel Alexandre (IT-Iscte). The project manager is Leonardo Sousa (CIS-Iscte).

After a first session in December 2023, the project kick-off meeting, held on January 15 and 16, 2024, at Iscte, had the main objective of defining the key actions to be implemented throughout the project. "Playing for Inclusion" will be the central motto of the KidLe project.

KidLe project is funded through the Erasmus+ program (action "KA220-SCH - Cooperation partnerships in school education").
