Giving voice to the newly arrived migrant pupils

At the first International Conference on Multilingualism and Multilingual Education (ICMME17) in Braga, Portugal, the EDINA project was represented by Emmanuelle le Pichon and Deborah Cole from Utrecht University. In one of the parallel sessions on May 11, they presented the voice of Newly Arrived Migrant pupils at the EDINA partner schools, compared to the voice of teachers and faculty members. How do both parties view education?

Their goal was to show the dynamic complexity in representations of multilingualism, language policy, and language power in our data; to include the voices of the children in representations; and to present how we translate these scientific insights into policies based on a report on the progress so far of the EDINA project.
