INTERACTed is a project funded by Erasmus plus program (KA2) that works to support primary schools educators towards integrated Interactive Digital Narratives (IDN) to develop the student’s socio-emotional intelligence and empathy.
INTERACTed is about:
To support school-teachers to learn how to provide playful and engaging social emotional learning (SEL).
To support children affected by COVID-19 disruption.
Covid-19 has deepened the severity of the need for digital transformation and to learn how to learn effectively in this ‘new normal’. Many children, in a European context, do not have easy access to technology and this can become an obstacle to the realization of an inclusive digital education.
Emotions play a significant role in a wide range of human cognitive processes including learning. For children affected by COVID 19 the disorder becomes important to find playful strategies to motivate them and thus involve them in all kinds of learning.
To provide a practical guide to deliver professional development courses for primary school teachers on the use of interactive digital narratives for developing students’ emotional intelligence and empathy.
To enrich their digital capacity towards integration of interactive digital narratives for developing students’ emotional intelligence and empathy.
Students aged 6-12, engaged with novel digital tools for cultivating the socio-emotional intelligence and empathy.
Ministries of education, interested to adopt the INTERACTed framework with its accompanied elements, toward inclusive digital education at a primary level.
