On January 16 and 17, the Poblenou campus is launching a meeting for the launch of a new international European project Erasmus +: Blended Learning for Inclusion, which has the title BLENDI. The consortium is made up of five centers coordinated by the University of Applied Sciences Diaconia (Finland) with the participation of Laia AlbóPatricia Santos i Davinia Hernández-Leomembers of the Technology and Education Research Group (TIDE) of the Department of Technologies of the Information and Communications (DTIC) of the UPF.

BLENDI's goal is to empower educators to use mixed learning in schools, in an attempt to address the social and educational exclusion of students from disadvantaged backgrounds

The project is based on the fact that students from disadvantaged and / or migrant backgrounds often have less access to digital technologies and how these technologies are used. In turn, this situation implies less participation of these young people in the different spheres of society, economic, social, political, cultural, spatial and institutional.

The project has been designed for addressing specific national and European needs, regarding the project’s target groups, namely students and teachers, as follows:

- To develop an innovative practical digital toolkit and a blended training course that will help teachers in using blended learning in schools based on the principles of inclusive education.

- To foster the digital skills of teachers based on the European Framework for the Digital Competence of Educators

- To empower students in expressing their views about their learning in a digital pedagogical context, enhancing in this way the collaboration between teachers and students in digital environments.

- To contribute to the effective and permanent inclusion of all students, supporting their right for education, equality and self-realization.

The BLENDI approach involves a combination of the BLENDI platform, the BLENDI toolkit, a blended training course for teachers, guidelines for creating dialectical-synergic blended lessons plans (co-creation of lesson plans between teachers and students) and the creation of such lessons plans. Teachers will be trained in using the BLENDI approach which focuses on the use of blended learning in schools based on logic of inclusion while students will be supported in decision-making regarding their learning process in digital educational contexts.
