No Child Behind nor Singled out? – Adaptive Instruction Combined with Inclusive Pedagogy in Early Math Software
We describe a unique play-&-learn game for early math, designed to provide adaptive instruction with respect to support and challenge as well as to cater for an inclusive pedagogy where no child, whether far behind or far ahead, is exposed as being “different”.
