UN Sustainable Development Goal 4 aims to "Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all".

United Nations has set 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) to be reached by 2030.

SDG 4 aims to “Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all”.

Through this short interview, we realize how important it is to allow everyone to learn together, regardless of visual ability and prior braille knowledge.

Ryan is speaking about inclusion but not in the same way as we usually see inclusion. He is happy to be part of the braille community even if he reads in large print!

As with all activities, offering “Battle” in an inclusive setting enriches learning. Each child has their own technique for building the starting tower.

A tower can be assembled in their hands, on the baseplate, adding one or more bricks at a time… All strategies are good!

Interactions allow finding personal techniques which work best. Therefore it is important to ask children to explain their strategy or technique.

The ability to work inclusively with LEGO Braille Bricks promotes equitable, quality education for all!
