In the event we were raising awareness among teachers in Ovanåker, Sweden, about the project rhythm4inclusion and its theme and objectives. The event was blended due to corona restrictions (groups attended in sections online). For the break all participants were invited for outdoor mingle, coffee and snacks. We presented results of the project, such as Project Curriculum. The tools for rhythm learning were described and hands on training introducted (konnakol) in order to be further explained in the final conference August 2021. Continuation of rhythm pedagogy and its methodologies will be further adapted in fall 2021 with the coordination by headmasters Anders liljemark and Jörgen Edström, Viksjöfors skolan and Alfta RO.
The participating teachers had the opportunity to get informed about the results of the piloting activities and see practical examples of how rhythm-based inclusion can be achieved with Music and Dance. They were informed about types of children with Special Education Needs that can be effectively addressed as well as the project outputs and results including the Online Training Programme and the project Platform and how they can use it to access all the training materials.
Throughout the presentation we shared videos for illustrations and guided how to find rhythm material in Swedish on https://artinedviksjofors.se/
