Assistive Technologies: Inclusive Teaching Guidelines for Educators
In education, assistive technologies include devices or services that increase learners’ independence, participation or achievement to ensure that they reach their full potential. This guide describes how educators using assistive technology can promote an inclusive environment that accommodates the different ways learners assimilate information and learn. It introduces them to a range of assistive technologies that address individual learners’ needs and help them overcome the barriers they face. It is important that educators understand assistive technologies as ‘technologies for all’ and normalise their use in the classroom, thus ensuring everyone benefits and reducing the risk of stigmatisation.
