VISIT TO JOHANNITERSCHULE IN DUISBURG, GERMANY. FOR EST PLATFORM

  1. 1. PROJECTE COMENIUS 2011-13 Duisburg (Alemània) 7-11 March
  2. 2. LVR – JOHANNITERSCHULE LVR - Johanniterschule( Duisburg, Germany) is a school for partially sighted and blind children and youngsters. Many pupils have got additional moderate and sometimes severe learning disabilities and/or behavioral difficulties. A small number of them has also got additional physical impairments. The school comprises pre-school, primary and secondary education with a special department for pupils with additional learning disabilities from year 3 onwards. There is also a peripatetic service which supports over a hundred children and youngsters in different mainstream schools. About 80 pupils visit the school itself and about 150 are supported in pre- school education. There is an age range from three months up to 18 years, with the youngest ones being visited either at home or at their local kindergartens.
  3. 3. OPTICAL AIDS AND ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY FOR BLIND LEARNERS Since pupils attending Johanniterschule face visual impairments, they need, in some cases, optical aids and specific assisstive technology in order to access their curriculum. Here you will discover some of the resources used every day in the school:

  5. 5. COMENIUS PROJECT “Hear my Voice” ACTIVE LEARNING APPROACH (LILLIE NIELSEN MATERIALS) The philosophy behind the approach of Active Learning is that, if given opportunity to learn from his own active exploration and examination, the child will achieve skills that become part of his personality. The teacher’s task is to lead the child out of passivity to activity and help to achieve motor abilities. They have to create an environment that is appropriate for these children to learn and to develop actively and they help the multiply disabled and visually impaired child to achieve as much independence and autonomy as possible.
  6. 6. COMENIUS PROJECT “Hear my Voice” ACTIVE LEARNING APPROACH (LILLIE NIELSEN MATERIALS) Learning becomes possible if the child: • is given opportunities to learn from the level to which he is developed. • can discover, experiment, and explore with many ways of performing an activity and thus learn the most practical way for him to perform a skill successfully. • has sufficient time to experiment and the opportunity to repeat an action as many times as necessary in order to store the information gained and to confirm that a specific way of acting gives the same result, and so comprehend the reality of it.
  7. 7. COMENIUS PROJECT “Hear my Voice” ACTIVE LEARNING APPROACH (LILLIE NIELSEN MATERIALS) • has the opportunity to compare his experiences. This allows him to discover similarities and differences, to recognize specific experiences, to associate a new experience with others already stored in the memory, to link experiences with each other, and later on to categorize and generalize experiences. • has somebody with whom to share his interest and experiences. This allows him to learn how to initiate interaction.
  8. 8. COMENIUS PROJECT “Hear my Voice” ACTIVE LEARNING APPROACH (LILLIE NIELSEN MATERIALS) Infants and children learn within several areas of development simultaneously. Ability achieved in one area influence abilities in other areas, so that the areas are intertwined and experienced by the infant or child as a small entirety. Through self-activity and interaction with others, this entirety should gradually contain more and more detail as the child comprehends and masters the several parts, becomes able to connect these parts, and finally is able to perceive a bigger entirety. In summary, learning is achieving knowledge by being active.
