IncludEdu aims to help educators, parents and guardians make decisions about how they can personalise a learner’s experience through the integration of Assistive Technology into mainstream, small group or individual learning activities.
Following the identification of a specific or additional need, educators, parents and guardians can select relevant Assistive Technology solutions to support, promote and enhance learning.
Within the IncludEdu framework, you will go through various steps;
1 – Firstly you select from four broad areas of need a particular area of learning.
2 – Next, you select the nature of the learner’s specific need.
3 – At the third and final step, you will be asked to select the technology platform/s available to you e.g. Apple, Google, Microsoft.
Your customised solution menu will then appear, a list of relevant add-ons, extensions, apps, hardware and software. As you select a tool, the IncludEdu framework will provide you with an overview and suggested ways of using the tool in an educational context.
IncludEdu is designed for not only educators but also parents, guardians and anyone else supporting a learner, as everyone involved can play an integral role in education and learning processes. Technology by its very nature can be used across home, school and college settings, enabling learners to embed learning across multiple settings.
