Aula Intercultural

The web portal aulaintercultural.org is an interesting resource for multipliers dealing with intercultural communication and intercultural learning. The theoretical texts as well as the projects presented provide important ideas. It is a multi-lingual web portal on education in multi-cultural societies. The web portal, available in Spanish, English and French at http://www.aulaintercultural.org is developed and updated by FETE-UGT (Federación de la Enseñanza - UGT). It is supported by IMSERSO (Instituto de Migraciones y Servicios Sociales) and CIDE (Centro de Investigación y Documentación Educativa). The web site aims at creating a virtual space for the discussion of questions related to multicultural education.
