ICT is a great learning tool to support children with special needs. It helps to enhance children’s learning and promote independent learning. With the help of ICT tools, children will longer depend on people’s help and this would be able to increase student’s self esteem.
Apart from this, I have read an article about “How ICT support students with special educational needs.” There are four aspects to the ways in which ICT influences upon your work with students with special educational needs which are:-
1) How you teach ICT to students with special educational needs.
2) How ICT supports your teaching of students with special educational needs.
3) How ICT supports special educational needs student’s learning
4) How ICT supports your professional development with regards to special educational needs.
This article would show you some of the aspects and explanation of “How ICT support students with special educational needs”.
Lastly, I would like to share a video on “ICT Enhances Learning for Students with Special Needs: Bridging the Communication Gap” where I also found it quiet interesting.
Enjoy your video.
