Young Children on the move: experiences and educational issues
Recently, the economic and social crisis in many countries has led to concerns about childhood, access to education, social and educational integration. Additionally, the large number of refugees and migrants have re-ignited the debate on the role of education and the ability of the school to respond to new realities and children’s diversified needs. Formal and informal educations need to be proactive both for the individual child and the society.
This Special Issue provides an opportune forum for international researchers and practitioners to report on research and debate issues about the experiences and educational needs of refugee children in the field of early childhood education. The aim of the special issue will be to provide a set of papers, which theorize, evaluate and extend international community experiences of educational responses, within formal and informal education, for children on the move.
- Literacy practices for refugee and migrant children
- Education policy for early childhood education for refugees and migrants
- Pedagogical and inclusive practices in formal and informal education for refugee and migrant children
- Social representations about early childhood education in times of crisis
- Family schooling practices in times of crisis for displaced children
- Social and cultural dimensions of the integration of refugee children into education
- Teachers training for displaced children in formal and informal contexts
- Refugee children's talk about education
