Rationale for Technology

Technology is a tool to enable students with special needs to engage in the mainstream curriculum in accordance with the Disabilities Standards for Education (2005) and good teaching practice.

These tools provide a practical resource for students’ to achieve learning outcomes. Technology is not to be thought of as a “time filler” but as an integral part of good classroom practice which supports inclusive and differentiated learning.

While the information we have presented here is current at time of development, technology is ever changing and developing. It is our intention that this project inspires you to meet your students’ learning needs.
