One of the last conferences to take place, before the COVID-19 pandemic cancelled all large group gatherings, was the national conference organized by Scotland’s Generations Working Together, which took place on 4th March 2020 in Glasgow.
Anne Fitzpatrick and Carmel Gallagher, members of the TOY Consortium from the Technological University Dublin, Ireland were fortunate to attend. Read their report of the event here.
On Monday 10 February, Giulia Cortellesi (TOY) participated in the kick-off event of the Storytellers Project in Empoli, Italy.
The Storytellers Project is a concept for a new library service connecting a community of senior readers to children and their families for remote reading aloud sessions. Children use the Storybell robot at home to connect with seniors willing to read. The Storybell robot transmits their reading live allowing them to speak as if they were on the phone.
Are you interested in bringing older adults and young children together to share knowledge, skills, values and have fun?
If yes, then the TOY online course “Together Old and Young: An Intergenerational Approach” is what you are looking for!
TOY for Inclusion is now a case study for the Inclusive Education in Action (IEA) initiative (UNESCO and European Agency for Special Needs and Inclusive Education)!
Our project has been selected to be among the online resources for international policy makers working to develop equity and equal opportunities within education systems globally.
