The Melody project has been delayed by the travel restrictions and measures taken by partner countries to prevent the spread of the Covid-19; the closure of schools in particular has resulted in a number of unavoidable delays for the project specifically in relation to the completion of Intellectual Outputs 4 and 5.
In consideration of the challenges to the project resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic, the project was granted a 3-month extension by the Italian Erasmus+ National Agency.
The Melody Project Completed on 31st March 2021 with the closing conference held on 29th March 2021 as an online event.
The Melody Project Partners are very pleased to report that notwithstanding the challenges of Covid-19, the project aims, and objectives have been met with all intellectual outputs completed to a very high standard with project materials and resources available on the Melody platform. We are confident that these resources and tools will support teachers in their work with students with learning disorders and contribute to the prevention of their early school leaving.
MELODY – Methods for Learning Disorders in Youth was developed as a “new melody” to listen, interpret, share innovative methods at European level and best practice at school level that support young people with learning disorders who are at risk of early school leaving.
The melody project overview
About the melody project
Young people with learning disorders have additional support needs that necessitates additional time and teacher support in the main classroom/curriculum context and also individual learning support provided in a small group setting or individual sessions.
The MELODY project responds to three priorities of the Programme:
SCHOOL EDUCATION: Supporting schools to tackle early school leaving (ESL) and disadvantage;
SCHOOL EDUCATION: Strengthening the profile(s) of the teaching profession;
HORIZONTAL: Social inclusion
Melody MOOC Platform
The link below will take you to the Melody MOOC platform. Here you will find the single e-learning modules and single toolkits. You will also find a feedback section.
Teachers are the primary target group of the MELODY project, a new method of approach with young people with learning disorders and provide them with a toolkit, a distance training module and guidelines which will be available at the end of the training and the MELODY Charter for all the contributions.
These can be used in the classroom and both assist them in the relationship and management of young people with learning disorders and, address the risk factors that make these young people more vulnerable and at risk of early school leaving/ school dropout. These young people are the final beneficiaries of the MELODY project.
