  • A great and a very useful course. I have enjoyed it.
    Thank you very much!

  • Yes you are right, inclusive education is our shared responsibility and we can all do something to make inclusion happen at our school. While I was moving from topic to another, and exploring all the downloadable materials, in the last week in this course, I discovered my own class room wasn't reflecting the practices of inclusive education. So I think I will...

  • I like to make a friendship with my students. That help me to know them very well, and work as their key person. So having a truthful relationship between a child, his parents and myself, helpe me to identifying barriers and design an affective adjustments very easy.

  • Yes, you are right, that is all universal design principles in education mean, sharing the same learning and experience.

  • Yes, you are right, that is all universal design principles in education mean, sharing the same learning and experience.

  • I think all students benefit from the use of universal design principles in education, because it makes learning goes beyond accessible design for people with disabilities to make all aspects of the educational experience more inclusive for students, parents, and educational staff.

  • Monica you are right.

  • That it really a fantastic idea. Sadly we only find a big play ground like that with it's all wide possibilities in the modern rich countries only, not here in Africa.
    In my country we have many small public parks and entertainments places that every body can enjoy.

  • When I look back on my time at elementary school , I remember I have had difficulty to understand the teacher giving directions, auditory messages while my classmates were talking, due to that I have changed my sitting place many times.

  • Now days in our modern world there're In Africa many families who feel pity, and even feel cursed because they have a disabled children. Many families in Africa are still keeping their disabled children in a hidden places inside their houses with closed doors, because they feel shameful of them. If we don't talk no thing of that will ever change. talking about...

  • Very interesting! We need to change our attitudes toward people with disabilities. We need to start from our own homes.

  • Fantastic video!

  • Yes, language is a powerful tool. It can hurts and it can cures too. We should be aware of that.

  • While I was growing up, all the schools that I have attended, no one of them was designe in a ways that allowed people with disabilities to get into, out or move around very easy. When I think about it now, that wasn't fair.

  • Good. I am ready for week two. Thank you!

  • Good. I am ready for week two. Thank you!

  • I have been watching disabled young children treated unfairly, because of their societies misunderstanding. I think now is the right time to start to correct and change a harmful beliefs and opinions.

  • I think Daniel's school has adopted segregated practice, because although he was in the classroom with his peers, but he was given different activity from others and he was using different resources.

  • Very interesting!

  • I am from Eritrea, but I am living and working in Sudan. The Eritran have fought for a long years until they got their freedom in 1991. With only 7 million of population, there was one or more disabled people in most family houses . So since 1991 the Eritrean government provided equal opportunity for all, before rectified the CRPD in 2017, but education in...

  • I think we have taken a big steps to ward inclusive education for all.

  • Useful information. Thank you!

  • They have been a great two weeks, I really enjoyed this course, and I have learned a lot.
    Thank you very much!

  • Gerat! Thank you!

  • Daniel is in the class room, but he is not learning, because the teacher and his assistant aren't giving him the same attention like the other students. This is not inclusion.

  • Great. Thank you!

  • It is important to listen and empathise when a student comes to you even if that is all they need from you at that time. Yes that is true.
    As a matter of fact before starting this course I have had a different ideas and a wrong ways to manage bullying problems at my preschool.
    I will be a champion and I will try my best to change my colleagues ideas about ...

  • I think I will teach phonics to my students in the future using contextually with commercial products, because they are the best, and available.

  • I prefer to use both of them. We use a play-based activities to teach phonics and words, specially when we work in groups, and we use a child-led play at any time of the day when they finish their class work, and at their two break times. We engage with them, show our interests and interact with out controlling the activities.

  • We use Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin, and Dr. Seuss books, but most of the time when we teach phonics we use big alphabet picture cards, and the jolly phonics videos.

  • An alphabet book with a video CD, so children can see how the images look like in the real life. So they can talk about them.

  • I love the activity, but we don't have laptops for children's use at our preschool, so we have made a game just like yours. We use pictures and letters flashcards. It is a matching game. It is good, but not very exciting like the above game.

  • My favourite book for supporting phonological awareness is Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is a book written by Bill Martin.
    My class children love to repeat the words Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and look for the letters.

  • I am working with a young children, so I clap for each sound, than I encourage them to join me and we clap together, or stand up and stamp our feet while saying the sounds. For example like car= k-a-r.

  • I like teaching through both adult- lead play, because it is good to teach a child a new alphabet letters and sounds, and child-lead play, because I can build naturally on what children already know. So I repeat phonics and words or a song while joining in thatever activities that interested them, I show my interest and interact meaningfully. We teach,...

  • Our class teaching strategies are very simply. We play different phonics videos songs, flashcards, magnetic lette, ABC puzzles boards, play dough, they sound out their names, games, storytelling, rhymes, match words to pictures or plastic toys, we put ABC in order and we use crafts to colour or docorat a letter and say it's sound.

  • I am working with a very young children, so I prefer to work with play-based, child-initiated model, because I learned that children learn best new words or alphabetical letters, when we interact with them purposeful while engaging and enjoying playing their favorites activities.

  • At my preschool children report bullying to their class lead teachers and teachers assistants, while parents report bullying to the class lead teachers. If she doesn't help, they report it to the principal, and talk with the school specialist who can deal with bulllying situations better than teachers.

  • We have a class roles. Like sharing, being nice and kind to each other..atc. So every morning in our circle time we talk about them for same minutes, and we encourage the children to talk about what behouver is nice and kind, and their feelings.

  • I might wait until Jinhai finish talking, and than ask him what is the best way to help him.

  • I think starting with my own class is a good idea.

  • Great! Thank you very much!
