Art Based Learning of Language of Origin through Didactic Innovation

Objective: The ALADIN project aims to revolutionize language education for migrant families in France and Germany by introducing innovative, participatory teaching methods. Specifically designed for educators and families with migrant backgrounds, ALADIN strives to promote inclusion and diversity in education, addressing the challenge of limited access to language learning opportunities for specific languages of origin.

Implementation: ALADIN focuses on offering learning activities in languages such as Polish, Romanian, Arabic, and Hungarian, as well as bilingual methods incorporating French and German. Through artistic and cultural content, the project fosters intercultural understanding and social cohesion. It empowers educators with creative teaching tools and encourages collaborative, blended learning approaches.

Expected Results:

Enhanced Language Education: ALADIN will provide interdisciplinary learning resources, including visual and digital art tools, musical techniques, and performing arts activities, to improve language skills.
Cultural Connection: Educational materials will incorporate cultural content for each language, strengthening children’s connection to their heritage and boosting self-esteem.
Educator Development: The project will equip language teachers with creative and blended teaching methods, enabling them to engage migrant families effectively and facilitate intergenerational learning.
Parental Involvement: ALADIN aims to empower parents to support their children’s language learning journey through art and game-based exercises, fostering stronger parent-child bonds and enhancing language skills.
Target Groups: ALADIN targets language teachers, trainers, and social workers supporting migrant families, particularly those from linguistic minority groups. Parents with migrant backgrounds will also benefit, using the learning tools at home to reinforce language skills and cultural heritage. The project addresses families from East European countries, Ukraine, and the Middle East settled in France and Germany.

ALADIN addresses critical gaps in language education identified by partner organizations, aiming to empower migrant families and promote cultural integration. By providing innovative teaching methods and resources, the project strives to bridge linguistic and cultural divides, aligning with European recommendations on language maintenance for migrants. Transnational cooperation enriches the project, ensuring the development of adaptable and high-quality learning materials tailored to diverse linguistic contexts.
