from the students' reflection
- Although the pupils were asked to choose one or two ways of learning, they wanted to experience all kinds of learning options.
All the pupils enjoyed the lessons.
The most popular way of learning was watching short videos that were prepared by the teacher.(some videos were with sign language).
The pupils went from dependent learners to independent learners.
All the pupils asked their teacher to do more “fun” UDL lessons.
