The integration of socially and financially disadvantageous, typically Roma students into the education system, and the prevention of the early drop out of these student from the school system is a central problem in Hungary, Romania and Slovakia as well. The main reason of the school drop-out is that the members of these groups involved already lose their motivation for learning in the third or fourth grade of primary school. According to surveys, the rigid education system plays a major role in this issue since it is unable to handle students who have special issues deriving from their disadvantageous backgrounds and can focus their attention more difficultly.A further significant factor is that the methodology employed in school is not always interesting enough for the students. Last but not least, Roma students do not find familiar cultural patterns and traits in the curriculum, thus, they feel excluded and the learning environment remains unfamiliar. The objective of our projects is to develop an experimental methodology and curriculum which handles these three issues at the same time. According to our experience, in the case of disadvantageous students who are the most likely to drop out,it is the success/failure experiences acquired in the third and fourth grade of primary school that mostly influence the factor of drop-out. This is the age when the students develop their learning skills and habits related to school – these habits (whether they are recipient or rejective) are difficult to change later on. In view of these, we aimed at developing a methodology focusing on the fourth grade of primary school which is innovative in several aspects: 1. We will develop an educational methodology tailored for the special needs of students living in geographically secluded places, or having socially and financially disadvantages, mainly Roma students. This methodology will build on the potential services/ opportunities provided by the most recent but still affordable ICT devices (tablets, Cloud based m-learning software that need minimal client side capacities and maximize the potentials of mobile devices); 2. In the development of the methodology, we include pedagogues who work on a daily basis with the target group of students since they know their needs and they can represent them well; 3. After the developing the “beta” methodology, we test it as part of a pilot-teaching to be held during afternoon programs: it will be a 30 hour practical teaching in three countries, at three locations; 4. As a part of international cooperation, we include target groups and teachers with similar social but different cultural backgrounds in the development of the methodology in order to ensure that the methodology itself will work in different linguistic and cultural environments; 5. When designing the visuals and compiling the content for the material, we will strive to make the curriculum serve social acceptance and to display cultural values that are familiar to Roma students. Methodologically, the project builds on coordinated workshops and on the creative work of teachers, experts, m-learning material developer specialists and designers. The expert team (with the active participation of the included teachers, pedagogues) will deliver the following outputs within the framework of the project: O1: Harmonized/Reconciledcurriculum-structure: the document recording the methodological and content structure of the curriculum; O2: M'Inspire Beta 30 hour curriculum package, test version, with M'Insp LMS system which enables the tracing, monitoring and documenting of the usage of the curriculum; O3: M'Inspire Beta testing reports which summarize the experiences of the 30 hour pilot teachings at the three location, in the three countries (one report for each); O4: M'Inspire 1.0 – the final version of the 30 hour curriculum package; O5: M'Inspire methodological handbook for teachers. As a complementary action, there will also be educational activities within the framework of the project: there will be a methodology training for teachers and a pilot-teaching for the target group students. The outputs delivered during the project will be freely available on the project homepage.The results of the project will be disseminated according to the dissemination plan: on professional conferences, events, through social/conventional media and with direct online dissemination methods. From the project, we expect the following benefits: it will have a significant impact on pedagogue/teacher communities working with disadvantageous, especially Roma children; it will contribute to the paradigm shift in the education policies in the participating countries; and the methodological innovations of the project will be applicable in different school utilization fields of m-learning all over Europe.
