The role of teachers, and specifically those of support, is increasingly important in the new horizons and new strategies desired by the PNRR in response to the pandemic crisis that has affected every dimension of public and private life and which requires a new vision of contexts. of training that are respectful of the new needs of social justice and inclusion. In this direction, the reflections of this contribution move, which point the magnifying glass on new functional paradigms aimed at redesigning a new ethical awareness that rests on broad and informed skills that are necessary for the design of inclusive learning contexts.
