We are happy to announce that the The Center for Inclusive Schools (ZIS17) joins WYRED as a new partner. This Center is one of the few locations in Vienna that offers a multitude of special and supportive educational settings such as family classes, classes for children with special needs and elementary school integration, as well as multi-level integration classes on secondary 2 level. School life in the Center is characterized by a maximum individualisation and differentiation.
Our 18 new participants are already experienced in political participation as they took part in a co-creation process in the student parliament of their district for newly designing the location around their school.
Within two social dialogue-sessions the children already successfully defined the topics and developed the research questions they are interested in.
So what are the ambitious projects they intend to work on in the next weeks? Some will explore the internet to find out how female and male influencers present themselves on YouTube. Some will write a Rap Text about their identities in social media. Others will research the question, how fake-news can be identified in the internet and one further group will define dos and don’ts to be safe when using it. We are very proud to have these young people in the project showing us how inclusion in practice works.
Soon results will be available in their community on the platform – we will go on informing you!
