Inclusive teaching and learning
Many learners struggle to engage with formal education. This can be for a range of reasons and there's no simple answer to any of them. This site is about reducing the barriers to engagement wherever possible. It will often focus on technology but that's only because technology has a lot to offer in many contexts. Other 'human based' approaches can be just as effective so they'll also get space when they cross the horizon.

alistairm 's insight:

Always useful to have an alternative to Skype! I like the option to record and upload to YouTube.

NounProject

The Noun Project collects, organizes and adds to the highly recognizable symbols that form the world's visual language, so we may share them in a fun and meaningful way.


The aim is to produce a simple graphic for every noun in the English language.

 

Images are posted as high-quality vector files that can be imported, resized, and modified by any photo editing software.

 

The images are in the public domain or shared with Creative Commons licenses. 

 

The possible uses for these images, by educators, are endless: bulletin boards, signs, learner projects/asignments, labels are a few ideas that come to mind withpout much effort.
