SkriLab in inclusive education
SkriLab is a comprehensive educational laboratory based on the STEAM methodology, consisting of an online platform containing scenarios and teaching aids for teachers, 3D printer, educational robots, sets of building blocks, programming tools, 3D modeling tools as well as educational mats and cards. How can SkriLab respond to the teaching needs of inclusive schools?
Multisensory involvement of students
3D models “revive” the theoretical issues explained during the lesson, support the cognitive processes of visually impaired people, enabling the use of the sense of touch, and activate students manually and physically.
SkriKit construction blocks support the motor development of students, allow them to practice focus and precision.
Classes lead with the use of SkriBots require physical activity, technical knowledge, observation and testing. Robots support the learning process of students with behavioral disorders. Classes are additionally supported by our mats and educational cards.
Creating aids for supporting various therapies
3D printing enables the efficient creation of numerous teaching aids supporting classes during:
Hand motor therapy
Sensory integration therapy
Therapy developing social skills, including communication
Examples of teaching aids that can be easily designed and produced in 3D printing technology.
SkriLab and inclusion
SkriLab and the assumptions of Skriware Academy are based on:
Team work – functioning in a group, working out a compromise, taking into account different points of view and discussion
Putting the student as an active subject in the teaching process > encouraging independent work, experiments and stimulating creativity
Placing the teacher in the role of a mentor > directing activities, organizing and developing knowledge
Activation by enabling multi-sensory involvement of students, apart from verbal content, also with the use of graphic materials, manual work and physical activity
Building social competences, by encouraging students to share the acquired knowledge with colleagues, SkriLab teaches how to listen, notice and respect others
