Inclusive education is a process of strengthening the capacity of the education system to reach out to all learners and can thus be understood as a key strategy to achieve EFA (Education For All). - Policy Guidelines on Inclusion in Education (2009), Paris: UNESCO. A New Approach to Teaching and Learning: Project based learning allows students to apply their knowledge of the content and develop mastery of technological skills. International online collaboration with their peers allows students to engage in cross-cultural exchange that will increase their understanding of other traditions and perspectives and build cultural literacy. Exchange 2.0: The Science of Impact, the Imperative of Implementation (2012).,
Universal Access to the core curriculum standards can be achieved using project based learning activities. Authentic Assessment gives students an alternate way to demonstrate their content knowledge. Alternative to traditional assessment allows learners to engage with the curriculum and retain the information in a meaningful way.
