Spaces for Intecultural Learning: an interactive ebook - Carolina Carotta - darmowy ebook
Opis

This ebook is the product of an Erasmus Plus project, “Spaces for Intercultural Learning”. The partnership be-tween six partners was born thanks to the new on-line platforms, mainly EPALE - Electronic Platform for Adult Learning in Europe. After a first contact through mail, the six partners - representing six European countries - were ready to start designing the project and exchanging their ideas and work methods through steady online meet-ings (GoToMeeting). With the good news of the project acceptance by the Eu-ropean Commission, the partnership officially started with the kick off meeting in Craiova, Romania. This meeting was followed by other workshops and meetings in Belfast in May 2017, Turin in September 2017 and Poland in 2018. The aim of the project was to promote intercultural learn-ing by developing new arts-based and action-oriented methods for intercultural teaching and learning. The goal of the e-book is to deepen teachers and educators’ under-standing of intercultural learning and show how intercul-tural competences can be effectively taught and learnt. Additionally, it is a complement to the guidebook Spaces for Intercultural Learning: Methods for teaching Intercul-tural Competences through Art and Action.

Theoretical Framework

Theoretical framework: Defining diversity and eradicating stereotypes

By Carolina Carotta, Enrico Dolza and Sofia Mastrokoukou, Istituto dei Sordi di Torino, Italy

Stereotypes and prejudices are interrelated concepts that affect our perception of people and our intercul-tural relations.

Question 1

True

Explanation

tereotypes are generalised, oversimplified or exaggerated beliefs about a group of people. A stereotype is a mental image that can determine how one views an individual just because that person belongs to a cer-tain group. A stereotype is not a category, but a fixed idea or belief about that category: a cognitive representation of a social group and its members. Stereotypes are born from the need to classify the world into clear and simple groups.

When perceiving others based on stereotypes, people classify others by a few easily identifiable aspects and believe that most people in that category are similar to one another, but dissimilar to people in other

categories. The stereotype functions as a filter of information and attributes a standard of be-haviour to all members of a particular group. This filter triggers prejudices and blocks the possibility of a real dialogue between mem-bers of cultural groups that perceive them-selves as different. Prejudices are negative attitudes of rejection towards members of a group, based on the simple fact that people categorise as belonging to that group.
