The development of information and communications technologies (ICT) during the last decades has been accompanied by their increased use in education, so much so that they have become integral to many educational actions and decisions. Inclusion in classrooms emphasizes the need for ICT integration in real-life classrooms, where that integration, as a means or an end, should reflect the social reality of education. Several approaches to inclusive education have been adopted across the world with respect to conceptualization, implementation, policy, and assessment. Inclusive education should address both the social and educational progress of individuals and should try to develop their skills and competences. Inclusion should aim for the maximum possible participation of students in the teaching and learning process, address existing diversity and differences, and reduce exclusion that is based on educational, political, social or economic factors.
The integration of ICT can play a key role in inclusive education. Digital technologies have created increased opportunities to teach, learn, engage, and motivate all types of learners, to personalize learning, to address individual needs and differences, to remove barriers and make learning accessible to all. The combination of ICT and inclusive practices can lead to students’ participation in the daily life of their community without distinction.
This special issue will reflect the multiple ways in which ICT can be integrated in inclusive education. We invite articles (theoretical and empirical) that address any of the following areas related to ICT and inclusion:
- Attention to diversity
- Digital diversity
- Digital divide
- Intercultural/cross-cultural and cultural diversity
- Educational support for specifics needs (Special education)
- Educational compensation
- Digital competence
- Social equality and inequality
- Universal design
- Teacher education for inclusion
- Other topics related to ICT and inclusion
