DIALLS’ first policy brief includes recommendations for European and national policymakers. It is based on DIALLS’ analysis of education policy documentation that revealed how cultural interactions are often narrowly framed in policy documents ignoring dialogue as a process of learning and empathy as its core disposition.
This document presents a detailed description of the functional recommendations for the design and development of the DIALLS online platform for cultural literacy learning. These recommendations are based on a critical review of computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL) systems in dialogue and argumentation research and co-design workshops with future users of the platform.
This document details the process by which the 45 core texts to be used in the Cultural Literacy Learning Project (CLLP) were selected from the broader set of 145 texts (see Bibliography of Cultural Texts below). It includes a description of the process to gain feedback from classes of appropriately aged children; the criteria used to then make the final selection and reports of the student perspectives that were gained.
The Bibliography of Cultural Texts is a collection of 145 wordless short films and picturebooks that reflect the key themes of the Cultural Analysis Framework. The accompanying spreadsheet can be used to filter and select the texts according to themes and importantly appropriate age range with which they might discussed in classrooms.
The Cultural Analysis Framework contains a systematic analysis of European and national education policies dealing with intercultural dialogue policy documentation.
