Federico Farini, Claudio Baraldi

Research output: Contribution to Book/ReportChapterpeer-review


Children’s experiences are multi-layered and may extend to peer-relationships in the classroom and outside the classroom, relationships with adults in the family and at school, intercultural and interlinguistic communication in different settings. It is therefore important to dedicate a section of the volume to illustrate how the many layers of children’s experiences were considered in the planning of SHARMED to develop construct innovative educational practices that were sensitive to the social and educational experiences of children. To explore children’s experiences in the classroom and in the family, a survey was undertaken involving to the 48 participating classrooms. The analysis of data from 938 children’s questionnaires and 1004 parents/guardians’ questionnaires allowed SHARMED team to consider several aspects of children’s experiences from the perspective of children, teachers, social workers and parents/guardians, which are presented in this chapter.
