Solutions for Inclusive Education

Welcoming and supporting every student in our classrooms

What does inclusion in education look like?

In its most simple form, inclusive education means accepting, understanding and catering for students’ differences and diversity whether that’s physical, cognitive, academic, social, or emotional. The goal of inclusive education is that students spending time outside the regular classroom environment is an exception rather than the norm.

In well established inclusive education environments, students feel welcomed and comfortable in our classrooms and are supported throughout their education.

The role of technology in inclusive education

Everyone thinks and learns differently. That’s at the very heart of inclusive education. When we know where each student’s strengths lie, and how they like to learn best, we can start to provide tools, and technology to support their style of learning.

Texthelp tools are designed to support every learner in your classroom. Each tool has a range of supports to compliment learning in the classroom and at home. Helping you to create an inclusive learning environment.

Supporting SEN students

Students in special education groups often form a significant part of our varied and diverse classrooms. It’s important that we provide each student with special educational needs with the tools they need to access the curriculum every day. Helping them to learn, engage with resources and their peers, and demonstrate their mastery in a topic area.

Read&Write

Read&Write is particularly useful for supporting students with special educational needs. Specific accessibility tools alongside the reading and writing tools, help to create a level playing field for everyone.

Equatio

Equatio gives SEN students many ways to engage and show their understanding in maths. They can choose to type, handwrite or dictate their maths problems and answers, as well as hearing maths read aloud when coupled with Read&Write.

Orbitnote

SEN students can use OrbitNote to make inaccessible PDFs and documents readable and editable.

Engaging every learning style

Every student learns and understands information in a different way, that’s what makes our classrooms, so brilliant and diverse. Since a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work in today’s varied classroom environment, it’s important to provide instruction, lessons, and additional resources in multiple formats.

Our tools can help provide options for students in how they engage with content, and demonstrate their understanding.

Read&Write

Read&Write provides students with access to a suite of over twenty different reading support tools, where and when they need it. Giving them choice in how they access and engage with content and helping to improve their reading and comprehension skills.

Equatio

Equatio improves learning experiences in maths and science by giving students choice in the tools that they need to succeed. This includes having maths read aloud, using “maths-to-speech” and visualising maths and science concepts digitally.

OrbitNote

OrbitNote allows students to express their understanding in many flexible ways. They can type or draw their thoughts on the page, which can aid planning. Both teachers and students can use their voices to send thoughts and feedback, and finally students can add shapes and images to their work.

Making the maths class inclusive and engaging

To make maths lessons inclusive, we need to anticipate what barriers to taking part and learning particular activities, lessons may pose for students in our class. In planning we need to consider the accessibility of our lessons and ways of minimising or reducing those barriers so that all students can fully take part and learn. We want all of our learners to foster independent learning techniques.

Equatio

From learners in Special Education to EAL students, Equatio’s accessibility features help students to be more independent in STEM subjects. It lets students visualise, digitise and understand maths with independence and in ways that best suit their needs.
