Pre- Conference Amsterdam 2013
Education for everyone was the theme of the European Forum Pre Conference in Amsterdam, August, 6 2013.
Europe is a multilingual continent, where the diversity of languages, cultures and traditions is highly valued. This diversity is evident in the education systems, culture, assessment methods and values.
In our Forum Pre Conference some aspects with which the countries in Europe are dealing when making sure that education is for everyone was discussed. What do the countries have in common? What are they doing differently? How do we Europeans accommodate the diversity of methods and experiences in schools or school systems, multicultural education and teaching? There were inputs from a number of countries and we had lively discussions amongst the participants.
European Forum Goals:
- to unite the European members, and celebrate their diversity
- to give opportunities to discuss, in an open situation, issues of educational importance.
