Many individuals and groups work with ICT for SEN – Inclusion Networks aims to pull them together, says John Galloway
The Inclusion Networks is a new, developing organisation connecting all the diverse groups and individuals with an interest in the use of ICT to support those with special educational needs (SEN). Whatever labels we attach to learning difficulties – “Dyslexic,” “autistic,” “blind,” “deaf,” “troubled” – technology can have a role to play in supporting these learners.
Some difficulties can be overcome, others are lifelong disabilities, but all have some impact on learning which ICT can ameliorate. This organisation, emerging from the SEN-focused community, is intent on trying to help that to happen and will build on its inaugural meeting at BETT 2012 in Olympia, London, on Friday (January 13).
