SHARMED is back in schools with new activities to promote innovative and inclusive teaching and learning! In SHARMED activities, students – with support from teachers and
facilitators- use photographs to narrate and share their personal and family memories and build a real intercultural dialogue based on respect for diversity.
During the next months SHARMED researchers will analyse classroom activities, interview teachers and meet schools and parents to share plans and results. In the meantime
the SHARMED team will start building the web archive which will make available to further and future beneficiaries the photographs, written texts and videos collected
during the project.
Consortium meeting at the University of Suffolk, in Ipswich
Last 13th November 2017, the project partners met in Ipswich (UK), hosted by University of Suffolk to plan the next steps of the SHARMED project and to report on past
activities and achieved results. They also analysed, together with the representative of the Education, Culture and Audiovisual Executive Agency (EACEA) in Brussels, the
strong and weak points of the project as they have been highlighted in the Interim Report assessment by the appointed evaluators.
SHARMED in Modena
On the 1st December a workshop has been held in Modena to illustrate SHARMED activities and results achieved in school year 2016-17 and to present to schools and teachers
those planned in 2017/18.
In Modena, 12 classes from primary schools “Cittadella” e “Gramsci” and lower high schools “Calvino” e “Marconi” have been involved in SHARMED, and so far have contributed
with 622 photos taken by pupils or brought from their family albums.
On the same day the project coordinators Prof. Baraldi and Prof. Iervese from University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, organised a press conference to present the project

SHARMED in the UK
Last 4th November the SHARMED team from Suffolk University presented the project at the TACTYC Conference
http://tactyc.org.uk/. Tactyc is the most important association for professional development of educators working with young children in the UK , but its scope reaches
professionals working with children of primary school age, therefore very relevant for SHARMED. The aim of TACTYC conferences is to enable people interested in the
promotion of high quality early childhood services to meet together and to share opportunities for the highest quality professional development, to offer and receive
mutual support and to encourage debate and discussion.

SHARMED in Germany
On December 4th the SHARMED team from Germany presented the project at a Symposium of the University of Jena and the Tsinghua University. The Chinese delegation was very
interested in the project and the symposium led to some fruitful discussions.
Together with the teachers and headmasters of the schools participating in the SHARMED project, the German team collected ideas and ways of implementing SHARMED in the
regular lessons. Many teachers are experimenting with SHARMED methods at the moment!
