PROJECT DURATION: 1. 11. 2021 – 31. 12. 2022
The Inklucentrum is starting its first Erasmus+ project by collaborating in a small partnership with the organization Inclusion in Berlin. Our joint project is called “New dimension and network of inclusive education” – InkluNET. In it, we will exchange our experiences on the topic of inclusive education in schools in Slovakia and Germany.
- Morning circles
- School support team
- Mixed-grade classrooms
- Non-violent communication
- Crisis intervention
- Group facilitative learning
In themes we produced educational videos and published brochures. All videos are available with subtitles in DE/SK on YouTube channel.
On 16th and 17th May 2022 colleques from the Inklucentrum visited the Picasso Primary School and the Evangelische Schule Berlin Zentrum. We were interested in how inclusive teaching in mixed-grade classes is implemented, in these two schools in grades 1-3 and 7-9.
We went home fulfilled and with a clear mission: in the future, we would like to build an inclusive school in Bratislava and gradually introduce mixed-grade learning there.
We are very grateful that the teachers and school administrators in both schools in Berlin took time for discussions and allowed their Slovakian colleagues to observe them in their classrooms. We had a special meeting with the former headmaster of Picasso Primary School, Michael Verworn. After the fall of communism in 1990, he already had the vision of a school for all and built it up with a lot of commitment.
During the visit, we made video recordings in class at the Picasso Primary School and spoke with the headmaster of the Evangelische Schule Berlin Zentrum. The video recordings were used to create short films during the project.
Experts in both inclusion and the Inklucentre are practitioners who have been working directly in the field for years. We will therefore present their approaches to the general public through short videos.
They will serve educators well as inspiration for their own practice or as a small guide on how to do it. They will see how differentiated teaching, reflective and facilitative learning or artephyletics or morning circles take place.

Inclution gUG – is a non-profit organization operating in Berlin in the field of inclusive education, involved in many European projects. They are dedicated to the advocacy of inclusivity in education by raising awareness of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and inclusive approaches (Person-centered thinking) in school administration and legislation and in the fight against segregation. They also focus on the transnational transfer of inclusive practices into schools, e.g. through human rights education for children and youth to the development of storytelling methodology for strengthening social inclusion in schools. They create educational projects about participative processing of the history of Nazism and through the art with young people at schools. The organization is run by experienced parents Stana and Stefan Schenck. https://www.inclusive-solutions.org/
Activities are part of bilateral cooperation of Inklucentre and inclution.org in Erasmus+ project InkluNET. Co-founded by European union.
