If cooperative learning fails it is because it is not correctly managed. Curriculum differentiation can hardly be described as a fad as it is a crucial mechanism for teachers to teach children who perform at various levels within one lesson.

Uncommon Sense: Goliath v. David, AAC style

Uncommon Sense: Goliath v. David, AAC style | Inclusive Education | Scoop.it

Last week a large, profitable company sued a small start-up business for patent infringement. As a non-legal person, I can only guess that this sort of thing must happen fairly often. I would also guess that the large companies, which have the means to hire crackerjack legal teams and drag cases out, must often win. And while I guess I feel bad for the small businesses, I’ve never really cared before now.


Because this time, the stakes are high. This time, it’s my daughter’s voice on the line. Literally.

Inclusive Education

Inclusive Education | Inclusive Education | Scoop.it
Inclusive education is based on the right of all learners to a quality education that meets basic learning needs and enriches lives.Focusing particularly on vulnerable and marginalized groups, it seeks to develop the full potential of every individual. The ultimate goal of inclusive quality education is to end all forms of discrimination and foster social cohesion. Today, 75 million children are excluded from education. Seven out of ten live in sub-Saharan Africa or South and West Asia. Sixty per cent of them are girls living in Arab States and sixty-six per cent in South and West Asia. The main reasons for exclusion are poverty, gender inequity, disability, child labour, speaking a minority language, belonging to an indigenous people, and living a nomadic or rural lifestyle. 'Vulnerable' and 'marginalised' are loose terms encompassing many different individuals and groups deprived of their right to education. Below is a small selection of groups as well as interventions and publications that identify solutions to their integration.
