Inclusive Phygital Learning Approaches and Strategies for Students With Special Needs
Recent research highlights the extraordinary significance of educational leadership for the motivation of teachers about the development of inclusive rationale in the school context. At the same time, due to the increased incidents of violence at schools, the need for inclusion of vulnerable groups seems to be constantly rising, as well as the need to develop cultural competence in both teachers and the student population. The purpose of this study was to measure the cultural competence of educational leaders as well as the effectiveness of their intervention strategies to enhance the cultural competence of teachers. For the study, a mixed method was used using a tool to measure the cultural competence of teachers and at the same time conducting semi-structured interviews with both teachers and leaders. The results of the research showed that there is a gap between the participants' self-assessment of their cultural competence and the effectiveness of the leaders' intervention strategies.
