IMAS II “Improving Assistance in Inclusive Educational Settings II”
The project IMAS II is financed by the Erasmus+ program of the European Union and implemented by nine partner organizations from six European countries. The main goal of the project was to develop five web-based knowledge boxes to different relevant topics for learning support assistants in schools. The effects of the knowledge boxes were evaluated by participatory research with experienced school assistants and pupils with and without disabilities. With the provided knowledge boxes, the project aims to contribute toward further development and enhancement of inclusive competences of school assistants and other educational staff by assisting them to learn how they can best support the learning and development of children with disabilities.
