Ms. Evmorfia Gamoulou (a Greek post-graduate student) is conducting a research about the barriers that prevent inclusive education implementation in European countries.
Her survey is directed towards European school social workers and school psychologists who work closely with students with special educational needs.
The aim of her research is to uncover the inclusive practices that are implemented in European countries but also to identify the parameters of social inclusion that take place in mainstream schools.
The survey exists in Dutch, French, Greek and English.
The questionnaires should be completed until 25th of June 2011 and can be sent to morfoula1981@hotmail.com. All provided information will be kept anonymously and confidential.

On 25th and 26th October 2011, Nottingham Trent University will organise the “Interactive Technologies and Games: Education, Health and Disability 2011” event in Nottingham.
The aim of the conference is to bring together academics and practitioners working with interactive technologies to explore and innovate within the areas of Education, Health and Disability. We have a particular focus on the use of gaming hardware and software to implement accessible solutions, interaction design using new input/output devices and the increasing impact of ubiquitous computing on our everyday well being.
The conference provides an excellent opportunity to showcase practice and to mainstream research ideas and outcomes. It will introduce a wider audience to key findings and products from research and will illustrate how practice feeds back into and informs research. The conference will create a forum for two-way communication between the academic and practitioner communities and particularly welcomes user led presentations and workshops.
The programme will include presentations of papers, workshops, a doctoral consortium and an exhibition space for demonstrations and posters. This event is held in partnership with GameCity – the World’s best-loved videogame festival and delegates are welcome to attend all GameCity events including the opening drinks reception.
Those wishing to present papers or hold a workshop should send abstracts, to a maximum of 500 words. For those hoping to exhibit or produce a poster, a 300-word abstract is required. The deadline for submissions is Friday 17th June, 2011 to be sent to: karen.krelle@ntu.ac.uk .
Final copies of accepted papers are required by Friday 30th September 2011
