Unified approach to e-Learning: Making education more inclusive through ICT
THU, NOV 12, 2015 AT 9:00 AM, Filoxenia Conference Centre, Nicosia, Cyprus
Technology, especially through personalisation of the learning process and creation of learning motivation environments, is a game changer as far as improving the learning opportunities of disadvantaged learners. ICT can facilitate:
- new approaches to developing educational content which is based on inclusion rather than separation.
- educational content made accessible to all learners despite of learning difficulties
Utilising new technologies and tools, both educators and learners can benefit in several ways.
The conference will discuss the topics of inclusive education and personalised learning through ICT. Distinguished speakers will present the latest trends in inclusion and personalised learning environments.

Supporting Inquiry Based Science Education (IBSE) for Special Needs (SN)
During the Management Meetings of the FP7 projects Inspiring Science Education (ISE) and Open Discovery Space (ODS) in Belgrade (Serbia), Helsinki (Finland) and Mulhouse (France) throughout 2014 and 2015 informal talks were held how the Learning Object Sequencer (LOS) of e-Hoop could support Inquiry Based Science Education (IBSE) for learners with Special Needs. The LOS is providing personalised educational material based on the individual profiles of individual learners. It could complement the Authoring Tool for teachers as well as the Delivery Environment for students developed by ISE. It was discussed to submit a proposal on the subject under the forthcoming calls of Horizon 2020 or Erasmus+. It was finally envisaged to hold a joint workshop at the Inspiring Science Education (ISE) Academy, which will take place in July 2016 in Attica, Greece.
