The first meeting of ADVOST project, held on 16-18 March online, was very successful and gave a great start for project.
The programme of three-day kick-off meeting included introductions and getting to know each other, presentation on baseline audit results, discussion on theoretical and methodological frameworks and discussion on the project schedule, dissemination plan and other practical issues.
The project includes three case studies in three countries, and comparison between the cases. Finnish case study focuses on Sámi language distance education for young children. Canadian case is about play- and land-based pedagogies in enhancing storytelling by using arts-based approaches. UK case aims to support practitioners in working with diverse communities in a way that permit all the voices of all pupils to be better heard.
The meeting was planned to be held in Rovaniemi, Finland, but it was changed to online meeting due to the travel restrictions related to COVID-19 virus.
