Περίληψη: The objective of this project was to actualize an exploratory research study on students’ participation in school life and its role with regard to students’ citizenship education. Research was centred on the first part of secondary school (lower secondary school) for two reasons: firstly, as a point of transition between primary school and upper secondary school, it is important for students’ socialization at the secondary school level; secondly, there is very little research on students’ participation in lower secondary school, as is documented by the paucity of information found in the search field. The project included a comparison between two European countries, France and Greece. The comparison between these two countries was not a goal in itself but aims to introduce a theoretical and methodological reflection on cultural, political and educational factors that influence the effectiveness of \"participatory democracy\" in lower secondary schools.

Εκδοτικός οίκος: ΠΑΝΕΠΙΣΤΗΜΙΟ ΘΕΣΣΑΛΙΑΣ
Περίληψη: This paper focuses on the need for teacher education programs and particularly post graduate education programs to include courses on issues linked to diversity in our society. Including diversity and specifically multiculturalism is important as teachers need to work success fully with diverse learners at the ideological level, practical level, political level and methodological level. This paper examines how Greek Master’s degree candidates taking a Multicultural Education course understand the diversity around him and how it influences identity and citizenship. A description of the course, student activities and student-professor interaction is presented. The paper also includes an excerpt from a student’s reflective journal and general observations from the analysis on the development of their knowledge, skills and awareness of diversity. From the analysis we note that an opportunity for focused, organized and active participation and reflection can positively influence the multicultural awareness of post graduate education students.

Περίληψη: The aim of the portion of the Swedish project implemented by the University of Patras teacher education course was to adapt and test the material and models developed by the project originators on continual assessment. The pilot project sought to examine the subject of developing the teacher education students’ professional competence with respect to issues of multiculturalism, diversity and teaching through the use of real life situations and simulations, continual assessment of the professional approach in authentic situations. Our goal was to test the viability of using the Swedish material with a group of Greek university teacher education students in an effort to address the issue of melding theory to practice. Our intention was to both examine our own flexibility with respect to using an innovative approach to assessment as well as by doing so to make assessment more meaningful and allow students the opportunity discuss to adapt. Through this project instructor-student and student-instructor discussion and reflection provided both interesting and important insight on the issue of how assessment changes can make course subject matter more vital as well as more meaningful. Key words Assessment, authentic professional scenarios, citizenship education, professional teacher education, simulation, multicultural education and diversity

Περίληψη: The aim of the present study was to assess the cultural sensitivity of a sample of Greek University Elementary education students using an adjusted version of Chen and Starosta’s Intercultural Sensitivity Scale, which is based on Bennett’s Inventory on Intercultural Sensitivity. Results show that Greek student intercultural sensitivity is already high, but that they feel they are not well enough prepared by their training for future educational work that might demand intercultural sensitivity.

Χρονολογία έκδοσης: 2007

Περίληψη: As prime socializers of the young, teachers are particularly challenged by the expansion of multicultural diversity in Europe. Helping teachers deal with diversity and tolerance lies in an exploration of their concerns about teaching in multicultural settings. Based on this, the current study aimed at analyzing the problems Greek kindergarten teachers’ encounter in teaching multicultural classes. The content analysis of the written texts of twenty-two Greek kindergarten teachers revealed six thematic categories of problems in working with children from diverse cultural environments. This paper addresses the issue of multiculturalism, diversity and tolerance and kindergarten teacher practices. This paper contributes to the ongoing discussion about multiculturalism, diversity and tolerance and how teachers regard these from the perspective of their teaching practice.
