Welcome to the Inclusive education

Inclusive education is a system of education in which children with diverse needs and different abilities are enrolled in regular schools and are provided with equitable learning opportunities based on their specific needs. It is based on the premise that all school children in a given community should learn together regardless of their socio economic backgrounds, gender, impairments and different abilities. Inclusive education acknowledges that all children have the ability to learn, recognises that childrens’ learning abilities vary, provides space for learning and develops educational methods and teaching aids to meet the educational needs of all children. Schools recognize and take into account the diverse needs of children and barriers faced by their learners, adapt to different styles and rhythms of learning and provides quality education through the appropriate use of resources, entitlements, school organisation, study plans as well as partnership with the community.

A short note on the genesis of Inclusive Education in Karnataka



Featured ICT resource

In this section, we will explore useful digital resources for teaching mathematics.

This week, we are featuring a video on how to prove Pythagoras theorem, using Bhaskara's dissection proof. This can be a very useful activity to be given under the Vidyagama program.

Interesting read

In this very interesting article, "engineer-mathematician" Dr Barbara Oakley talked about how mastering procedural fluency, combined with language fluency helped her master mathematics, even when she began learning advanced math at the age of 26!

How I rewired my brain to become fluent in math

Barbara Oakley is a professor of engineering at Oakland University, Rochester, Michigan, and the author of, most recently, A Mind for Numbers: How to Excel at Math and Science (Even If
 You Flunked Algebra). She is also co-instructor, with Terrence Sejnowski, the Francis Crick Professor at the Salk Institute, of one of the world’s largest online courses, “Learning How to Learn,” with Coursera.

Resources for hands-on activities

This is a collection of hands-on activities that can be used for Vidyagama program. Check regularly for updates.

Romping in Numberland is an extremely interesting book where you can find some simple activities for introducing the joy of numbers. This is a great resource for bridge course or even for students to explore numbers and will help them in their number skills and operations. Click here to download.

Learn Visual Programming

Turtle Blocks is a logo based programming environment for introducing students to the basics of programming.

We can use this to develop visualization, logical reasoning and algorithmic sense in students by performing various operations with the Turtle. This can help in the building of computational thinking and you can also introduce some geometry through this.
