Always the same story - not in the school concert, not in the yearbook, not invited to parties - school communities just never get the point of  embracing inclusion.

Flipped classrooms go hand in hand with the use of ICTs in the classroom. Revolutionises the role of the teacher and leaves more time for individual support.

“In order to create an inclusive society, inclusive schools are a must,” says Purnima Kayina, headmistress of Cherry Blossoms School who asserts that in mainland India differently-abled children who grew up in specific special schools are not able to integrate well into society. “In the classroom and playground, they are all equals. When they are treated equally their confidence level also comes up. They have to fight and do their homework like the rest of the children.” Purnima further adds.

How Teaching Is Changing: 15 Examples

How Teaching Is Changing: 15 Examples | inclusive education | Scoop.it

"It’s tempting to say that no matter how much technology pushes on education, every teacher will always need to know iconic teacher practices like assessment, curriculum design, classroom management, and cognitive coaching.

This may end up being true...Below are 15 tasks that are less skill-based. and a bit more conceptual, collectively representing how teaching is changing."

I suspect that every teacher has seen major change over the last few years. This post provides a look at changes that have happened, or are in the process. The first seven provide the change and a look at the old, the new, the difference and a short summary. One example from the post is quoted below.

Personalization

The Old: Administer assessment, evaluate performance, report performance, then–maybe–make crude adjustments the best you can

The New: Identifying, prioritizing, and evaluating data for each student individually–in real time

The Difference: Precision

There are many websites on the Internet that now offer FREE of charge learning materials. Now even the poorest people could afford to be better educated than many of Harvard’s graduates, all they need is access to a computer(does not even have to be personal one, it could be the one that the local library offers for public use)

"A poorly written DSM criteria set is useless. The essential prerequisite to an accurate diagnosis is that different clinicians can agree on whether it is present or absent in a given individual. If the definition lacks precision, different people will interpret it in their own different and idiosyncratic ways."
