The aim of this project I HAVE THE POWER is to contribute decrease the rate of early school leaving of disabled pupils in the 11–15 age group. The first reason why this project should be carried out transnationally is to move the issue to the European dimension. The European Union’s 2020 strategy aims to withdraw the early school leaving under the rate of 10%. Our goal is to exchange measures and good practices about educational games with each other for tackling the absenteeism and early school leaving of the SEN students. For this reason, we want to develop new methods together and share our experiences about tackling early school leaving. The Strategy takes into account the experience of the Disability Action Plan (2004–2010). Its objectives are pursued by actions in eight priority areas. One area covers Education and training. The aim is to promote inclusive education and lifelong learning for students and pupils with disabilities. The European Commission adopted on 15 November 2010 a new strategy with the overall objective being to break down the barriers that prevent people with disabilities from participating in society on an equal basis. This collaboration began with an eTwinning project which aimed to educate our pupils through international cooperation between schools from countries with different cultures. This partnership intends to improve our pupils’ social, cultural, and language skills. We will combine our actual teaching strategies and methods with playing and exchanging experience. We want to empower our pupils with disabilities to enjoy their full rights, and to remove everyday barriers in life. We believe that disabled and unhindered students are members of the same community and should learn to live together. Schools are places where students spend most of their time, they gain experience and socialize. We aim to provide the students’ integration. We will get help from the local government, municipalities, non-handicapped students, parents, and non-governmental organizations. We will organize various seminars to raise awareness for the disabled in society. Special educations are designed for mentally, physically, socially, or emotionally delayed students. This delay places them behind their peers. Due to these special requirements, students cannot be met within the traditional classroom environment. All partner schools think that special education programs should contain teaching methodology and instruction to meet the appropriate needs of each child. The third reason why this project should be carried out transnationally is related to teachers’ teaching improvement in schools. Teachers will have an opportunity to observe the teaching and learning methods and techniques on the spot. They will have an interaction with colleagues of partner schools so that they will share their teaching experiences with each other and they will revise and strengthen their teaching profession, use more innovative teaching methods in their schools.
