In primary education, making students aware what it is like to live with a disability, is an important theme, according to many teachers. That is the reason why DST, in close consultation with teachers and students, and commissioned by the Fonds Gehandicaptensport (Disabled sports Fund), put together a package of practical digital teaching materials about sports with disabilities.
How do you learn something about life with a disability? By experiencing it yourself.
Experience a disability first-hand
The package (for grades 7 and 8) is packed with leads and teaching ideas for themed lessons for both classroom and gym. That is because the best way for kids to learn what it means to live with a disability is to experience the consequences themselves and share that experience with classmates. The teaching materials are designed to support and build on existing initiatives of the fund, such as (s)Cool on Wheels.
