This Thursday, May 28, the Piaget Institute promotes a webinar dedicated to the theme of distance education and inclusive education, integrated in the Piaget Digital Talks cycle. Access is free to all interested parties, upon prior registration that can be made through the news published on the Institute’s website, with the event taking place from 6 pm.
With the closure of schools as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, the central role of the school in the lives of communities and society in general became evident, as well as the importance of education as a public good that goes far beyond academic learning. The purpose of this Thursday’s event is to take stock of the difficulties felt, the experiences lived, the opportunities and the solutions that have been created for inclusive education in a non-classroom environment.
All of this happened in a context in which, as everyone’s life was greatly altered, in Portugal and in the world, the majority of the players mobilized themselves so that the school could remain present in the daily lives of students, both children and young people, avoiding greater inequalities. .
The event will be attended by David Rodrigues, president of Pro-Inclusion – National Association for Special Education; Raquel Raimundo, president of the Southern Regional Delegation of the Order of Portuguese Psychologists; and Carlota Brazileiro, professor of the Special Education graduate program: Domain of Early Childhood Intervention.
This virtual roundtable will be moderated by the coordinator of the Special Education graduate program: Cognitive and Motor Domain, from the Piaget de Almada Institute, Domingos Rasteiro.
The Piaget Digital Talks webinar cycle started last week and aims to be a broad debate on current and relevant topics in the digital world, open to public intervention. Events always take place on Thursdays.
The first webinar debated the issue of the emergence of digital transformation, with André de Aragão Azevedo, secretary of state for digital transition, as special guest. The debate also included Filipe Frasquilho, business director at IP Telecom and coordinator of the CTeSP for Cybersecurity, Networks and Computer Systems, at the Piaget Institute in Almada, and Rui Tomás, general secretary of the Piaget Institute.
