Discover how interactive learning technologies can be used to create fully inclusive and collaborative classrooms

Children using a Learning Response System

ICT can facilitate collaborative learning and provide a powerful tool in ensuring inclusivity when integrating special educational needs learners into the mainstream classroom. As ICT is already commonplace within today’s classrooms, integration from an SEN perspective is extremely straightforward. This is because the same technologies can be used with minimal or no adaptation required.

Easy integration

One example of this is a portable interactive LCD panel. While typically used to aid teaching with a large classroom audience, this solution can have profound benefits for children who are visually impaired. By displaying the lesson content from the interactive whiteboard on to a personal screen, these panels allow visually impaired children to see the same as their classmates.
