Am Italian project aim to normalize prison schools and create equal conditions as other schools outsite prison
They to with the aims to
- Allow students/prisoners to experience success and a sense of self-efficacy in a field, new to many of them, which is a scientific culture and giving students the new identity of trainers;
- Promote the exchange of experiences between “inside and outside”. Mutual enrichment in terms of human experience is expected from the meeting between students and teachers from outside and students inside;
- Spread good teaching/learning practices in the field. The teaching method used, is in line with recent research in mathematics education. This will allow the prison school of Bicocca to become a point of reference for the school realities of the area, and the visiting teachers to replicate the teaching experiences learned in their schools.
