How Inclusive Education is Reshaping the National Curriculum

05/07/2022

Inclusive education is based upon the idea that everybody is entitled to the same education, regardless of what physical or mental challenges they face. Inclusive education has begun changing the way that the curriculum is taught across the country, as it is recognised that certain changes are needed to incorporate inclusive education into the everyday schooling experience. Let’s take a look at a few of the ways this has materialised.

Course Highlights 
 
Firstly, let’s see how an MA in Inclusive Education from the University of Bolton can help enhance your career prospects in a challenging, yet rewarding sector. 
 
A noticeable issue in education is that while equality of opportunity is important, it’s often overlooked and misunderstood. The future will be in the hands of those who can design and create an education scheme which is going to readily transform the lives of users who have specialist needs. Inclusive education helps these individuals to benefit from the opportunities available to them in wider society.  
 
This course offers: 
 
- A course which has been designed to cater to people from all walks of life, each with different educational insights and perspectives 
 
- Education based around critical thinking and research, helping learners to make sensible, evidence-based independent judgements 
 
- Gain a new understanding of the diversity of educational practice and how to balance out subject knowledge, both to gain theoretical perspectives and professional best practices 
 
- Unlock a wealth of resources that can be used to enhance your learning and make decisions using a range of resources across the spectrum 

Supporting Students with Special Needs 
 
The way in which the curriculum is taught has been slowly changing to accommodate students that have special needs. 
 
Specialist teachers and training have been made available to work with children who have issues with learning like autism or ADHD, there has been a focus on accessible learning materials to support students with visual or auditory impairments, and a general focus on inclusivity to make sure that every student, regardless of physical or mental challenge can receive a proper education. 

Providing More Flexible Learning Options 

Students were expected to adapt to the way the curriculum was taught, rather than the curriculum adapting to how students learn best. This has changed with the renewed focus on inclusive education, putting an emphasis on giving people access to the resources they need in order to thrive and changing the curriculum to meet those needs.

Incorporating Technology into the Classroom  
 
Technology has always been slow to acclimate into the classroom environment, partly because teaching methods are often quite firmly established, and also because schools often don’t have a huge budget for technology. 
 
However, technology has now begun to find its way into the classroom with more frequency, which is no bad thing because it is allowing for more inclusive education. Providing things like tablets for students that don’t necessarily have the best writing speed will allow them to type and complete work in a more efficient way. It also gives access to more individualised learning resources. 
Focusing on Individualised Learning Plans 
 
These are important to education because they allow us to create specialist support for certain learning requirements that the students may have. This might change the way that information is given to be more inclusive to students with certain learning disabilities, or simply to change existing plans to be more inclusive generally.
