The INCLUSIVE MEMORY project fosters the construction of a shared and collective social memory through an inclusive system within the museum. The core of this project is a close connection between new teaching methodologies and the implementation of new digital tools, in order to encourage the development of cross competencies at all museum users’ disposal, especially for the disadvantaged sections of the population and also to reinforce contacts and instruments of the linguistic and cultural mediation
The INCLUSIVE MEMORY project involves seven Departments of the University of Roma Tre: Education, Engineering, Foreign Cultures, Languages and Literature, Political Science and Business Studies. Researchers participating in the project were divided into six different working groups focused on different research fields and activities.
The project is funded on the idea of museums conceived as an educational sites, not only from a canonical point of view (museum as an exhibition site), but also referring to the concept of social and cultural integration. It has been a while, indeed, since the focus on museum education for users, the analysis of different social targets and the evolution of personalised teaching (Parry, 2010) deeply influence visitors’ experience as the new core of the latest research in this sector. Becoming a teaching site, a museum evolves into a contest of social integration, where all social categories manage to interact within it and to develop skills such as critical thinking, communication and cooperation.
ResultsStudy and research activities on the project, training activities for teachers and museum educators, workshops with students and museum visitors will be carried out in order to promote the social inclusion of visitors and groups of people usually excluded from non-formal and informal educational contexts.
Involved museum institutions will receive documents, assessment tools, teaching units and learning activities at the end of the project, in order to identify any shortcomings or problems and to improve the performance of future replications of the experience.
Results and research reports will be shared in order to promote training and teaching activities, both in national and international contexts.
Data collection and analysis on the linguistic and cultural mediation tools, development of cross competencies for museum visitors, use of digital tools and innovative teaching methods.
