ICT to Support Inclusive Education - Universal Learning Design (ULD)

Education is a basic right and essential for both self-development and access to employment.  However, many disabled people experience barriers to accessing education and consequently have fewer opportunities than non-disabled people.  Approaches to overcoming these barriers include the use of technology, changes in attitudes and legislation.  The focus of this session will be ICT-based learning technologies to support inclusive education and the associated pedagogical issues which can act as barriers or enablers.Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: 

  • Case studies of new technologies and good practice.
  • Critical evaluations of existing technologies
  • Approaches to designing new technologies
  • Accessibility, usability and support issues
  • Design for all approaches.
  • Classification and evaluation
  • Pedagogical issues
  • International comparisons.
  • Accessible multi-media
  • Mobile learning technologies
  • Educational games
  • Methods and tools to support inclusive education
  • Design of accessible electronic materials and eBooks
