Supporting the participation of migrant families in Flipped )   Learning

EU-Programme: Erasmus+, KA2, Strategic Partnerships for VET
Coordination: LE MONDE DES POSSIBLES ASBL (Belgium)

Duration: February 2022 – January 2024




Parent involvement in children’s learning strongly influence student achievement, engagement, and motivation. However, parent involvement decreases in the case of migrant families, as they may face multiple obstacles to become involved in their child’s schooling: language barriers, insufficient understanding of the functioning of schools in the host country, and lack of time or money to invest in their child’s education.

The Flipped Classroom pedagogical model transfers the work of certain learning processes outside the classroom and uses class time to facilitate and enhance other processes of acquisition and practice of knowledge. An insufficiently explored approach to overcome the difficulties to involve migrant parents in the education of their children is Family Learning, namely any learning that includes more than one generation of a family.

FLIPPMI partners truly believe that Intercultural Mediators can play an important role to create positive relationships between migrant students, their families and the wider school community therefore this Erasmus+ project will strength the participation of migrant families in Flipped Learning through Family Learning methods by equipping Intercultural Mediators with the necessary skills and resources to support the process.
