Rapidly changing development in technology requires new challenges of teaching and learning in school to meet the needs of all pupils.
This book, Guide of Good Practices, highlights the importance of the balance between new technology and good pedagogy and is a part of the activities within the project Teaching and Learning in Special Education with Information and Communication Technology (TELESEICT 2016-1-PT01-KA203-022950), a three-year ERASMUS + project in the framework of Key Action 2 (KA2).
This publication has been produced by the partnership and is a collection of formal and informal practices carried out in each partner country, especially in the field of special education.
The combination of knowledge from the partners of the consortium has given the necessary European dimension to the project and all participating institutions in Higher Education have contributed with their experience in
different types of disabilities.
The main purpose of the project was to raise the awareness of the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) — digital competence, when creating good learning environments for pupils in need of special support, also referred to children with special educational needs (SEN). While there is much work to be done regarding technology, this is an excellent first step that can have a solid and sustaining impact for years to come.
Different activities have been carried out during the project time and the fulfilment of the main purpose has gradually been reached, culminating in several intellectual outputs, this book is one of them. The chapters reflect
initiatives of different groups of practitioners, scholars, researchers, and governments, all people with a clear commitment to making a difference in the education of pupils in need of special support, and thus to develop the quality in the provision of services to children, young people and their families.
