THE INCLUSIVE SCHOOL AND TEACHER TRAINING: AN EXPERIENCE OF HIGHER EDUCATION IN ITALY

V.P. Cesarano, R. Capobianco

University of Naples Federico II (ITALY)
Guidelines for Integration Policies in Education of UNESCO in 2009 state that «the inclusive school is a process of fortification of the education system's capacity to reach all students [ ... ] . A school system " included " can only be created if ordinary schools become more inclusive. In other words, if they become better in the education of all children in their community » .

To make the Italian school an inclusive school the MIUR, the Ministry of Education, University and Research, has launched a series of training courses for teachers of Italian schools of all levels to better spread the culture of inclusion and to share best practices on pupils with Special Educational Needs ( BES).

The Territorial Center of Support ( CTS ) Cariteo - Italico of Naples, on the recommendation of the MIUR - General Directorate of the Student and of the Regional School Office ( USR ) for the region Campania, having been commissioned to manage a regional training activities aimed at school teachers of all levels in the region with the aim of forming a contact BES in every school, it has organized training activities with the SInAPSi Centre of the University of Naples Federico II and the University of Salerno.

The formation, through the flipped learning model, involved the construction of :
• a theoretical path in e-learning, 12 learning objects structured into video lessons, slides, handouts and assessment sections for a total of 18 hours of use, provided the students the theoretical contents and the fundamental legal references, ways in which it was outlined the path of self-study that the students have deepened to better prepare for the laboratorial lessons;
• a series of 4 meetings structured as workshops, a total of 12 hours, through case discussions, simulations and exercises, provided the participants the opportunity to decline in teaching and operational terms what previously learned in remote. The four laboratory meetings were:
LAB1 - Inclusive teaching for pupils with Special Educational Needs
LAB2 - Planning of the school inclusion: PEI - PDP - PAI
LAB3 - Didactic and compensatory technologies for pupils with DSA and other special learning needs
LAB4 - The assessment of pupils with BES (disability, DSA, other BES)

After completing the course, the participants who carried out all the activities provided by the e-learning platform and attended at least 9 hours of the laboratories in the presence, has been released a certificate of attendance.

The course took place from January to March 2015. The recipients of the training organized by the SInAPSi , has covered the whole province of Naples, as many as 17 groups of teachers, each consisting of 30 units, which have been accompanied and supported in the development of design skills and methodologies to support the processes of inclusion that every school is called to accomplish.

The SInAPSi with an interdisciplinary team composed of academics, educators, psychologists, bio-engineers and with the support of an expert teacher, has prepared this modular training path partially available on line and in part in the presence with four meetings workshops at the CTSs' schools.
