Some Case Studies Concerning Information and Communication Technology Based Inclusion into University
ABSTRACT
In recent years, a revolution occurs, in both the school and the university, in which many of the traditional education paradigms have been questioned. This phenomenon has been triggered on the one hand by the students, both in the school and the university, who make use of new information and communication technology based learning paradigms, despite the conservative resistance of most of the teachers; on the other hand also because of the inclusion needs of people with disabilities and specific learning disabilities who until now have been excluded from education at various levels or that they have to face their studies with great difficulty. The present paper discusses some examples of applications in which not only we explain how the technology makes these guys able to participate but also what the design methods are by which you define the actions characterized by a multidisciplinary approach individualized.
