The scientific inclusive approach based on the basic scenario of the inquiry-based learning and Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles.

UDL is an approach that combines the knowledge on how the brain works with a set of principles further materialised in the format of guidelines. It is divided in 3 main strands: Engagement, Representation and Action&Expression.

Inclusion is a big word. UDL (Universal Design for Learning) is a new approach to education. It is a holistic way to minimize barriers, respecting individual values and choices, enabling multiple opportunities for personalisation and differentiation. Please try the inquiry lesson developed by Rosa Doran and her team (NUCLIO):
Universal Design for Learning in Practice
The Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is an approach that allows educators to create inclusive environment. You can incorporate Universal Design for Learning into their STEAM curricula using our lesson plan, where the UDL principles are assimilated in Basic inquiry learning scenario using its five major phases: Orientation, Conceptualisation, Investigation, Conclusion, Discussion. Each above-mentioned phase includes a set of recommendations of the UDL principles for achieving the best inclusive results.
You can consult with the lesson plan in a PDF format [inSTEAM_UDL_LessonPlan]
