Technology has changed the way children learn in the classroom. Technology has altered how students engage in learning activities, the format of learning materials they use, how tasks are completed, and how they demonstrate what they know.

Technology is not a barrier to literacy and numeracy, but in fact can be an assistive tool to develop these important skills and support students to compensate for their learning disabilities and difficulties.

Technology can support students with learning disabilities and difficulties by providing them with the tools to communicate and learn. This includes reading, writing, organisational, study and research and numeracy tools.
