How images contribute to special education


“Images clarify everything more quickly to my students and that enables them to process the information more easily”, according to teacher and educator Anke Devillé, whose students are affected by speech and language disorders.

Anke teaches in Kasterlinden, a regular school and boarding school in Brussels that offers special education type 6, type 7 and type 9 in pre-school education, primary education and secondary education. “If I teach using the classic methods, meaning I just narrate in front of the class, my students often struggle to understand everything. That’s why images are such a great asset and subtitles can also mean the world to my students.” 

This shows, once again, the ways in which image and sound can assist the teaching practice. This 30.000th teacher using The Archive for Education brings us closer to our goal ‘every day in every classroom’.
