ΗORIZON 2020, SC6 TRANSFORMATIONS 2018-2020, ‘SMOOTH: Educational Common Spaces. Passing through enclosures and reversing inequalities’
(2021-2024), PI for Aristotle University, coordinator University of Thessaly.
SMOOTH intends to introduce the emergent paradigm of the ‘commons’ as an alternative value and action system in education for children and young people. The project critically draws out the implications of the commons for refiguring education and for social change in general, on a footing of equality, sharing, participation, togetherness, caring and freedom. It sets out to study if ‘educational commons’ can operate as a catalyst for reversing inequalities through various methods such as pedagogical documentation, pedagogy of active listening, ethnography and discourse analysis.
