E-EVALINTO: Evaluation environment for fostering intercultural mentoring tools and practices at school
Early school leaving (ESL) is an obstacle to the socio-economic growth of European countries. One of the targets for the EU in 2020, related to education, is to reduce the rates of ESL below 10%. Tackling early school leaving is a stepping stone towards improving the opportunities of young people and supporting smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. Young people with a migration background are at great risk of ESL. To date, the gap between natives and young people born abroad is still very high. One of the factors leading to ESL is the lack of prevention and early intervention strategies, both at institutional and school levels, related to the need to develop effective methodologies and support for these students.
The objective of E-EVALINTO is twofold. On the one hand, it is intended to promote peer-mentoring actions addressed to both reduce early school leaving in migrant student population (secondary school), and to acknowledge the value of interculturality itself as part of an active and responsible European citizenship education. Secondly, E-EVALINTO aims to develop an ICT framework for assessing, managing and developing activities for intercultural contexts, with a particular focus on taking decision processes and the identification of different patterns that may be induced from the variety of potential situations to be analysed.
