Output 4 – Shaping supportive environment
Education, whether marked as inclusive or not, may have an important impact on the development and learning of a child “experiencing barriers to learning”, as well as on typically developing peers and on the teachers. We want to provide teachers, educators, principals, parents with a more environmental perspective.
In the presented collection of best practices, we want to give samples of the beneficial use of mediated learning experience in real life, answering the question: how can we change the environment so that it will encourage, reinforce, and create in the student the will, the need, and the ability leading to important academic achievements. We want to focus on creating an environment that encourages learning. The home, classroom and afternoon clubs may be organized to accelerate cognitive adaptation. This includes structured interactions resulting in maximum benefit to the child, accelerating the thinking and learning processes.
