KD international school of Vilnius experienced Erasmus+ teacher mobility project for the first time this year. The main idea of taking part in the project was the opening new opportunities for the whole school community to prosper the education system. Taking action from this perspective, the primary teachers of KD international school of Vilnius have chosen the actual need of teaching- inclusive education. Going through the suggested courses for teacher mobility, the Italian inclusive education model was more attractive to pursue the new teaching approach in this concept. The goal of inclusive education is to meet the learning requirements of all students, regardless of their abilities (physical, cognitive, academic, social, emotional…).
Diversifying teaching approaches can accommodate students with varying abilities, past learning experiences, cultural backgrounds, learning styles, degrees of motivation, and so on. The training was held in Bologna from October 9th to October 15th, 2022. Participants hailed from all throughout Europe.
Our teachers were able to learn about the Italian inclusive education model, as well as special needs laws, the principles, benefits, and key values of inclusive education, how to improve the learning of students with special needs, and even visit an Italian school that works with young people with physical and learning disabilities to debate teaching methods, tools, and approaches. They have discussed and exchanged their personal experiences and best practises related to working with people who have learning difficulties.
It is critical to include kids with special needs in the classroom. Every child has the right to a good education and to learn. Inclusive education occurs when all kids, regardless of their problems, are put in age-appropriate general education classrooms in their own neighbourhood schools to receive high-quality instruction, interventions, and supports that enable them to attain core curriculum goals (Bui, Quirk, Almazan, & Valenti, 2010; Alquraini & Gut, 2012).
