Inclusive teaching and learning
Many learners struggle to engage with formal education. This can be for a range of reasons and there's no simple answer to any of them. This site is about reducing the barriers to engagement wherever possible. It will often focus on technology but that's only because technology has a lot to offer in many contexts. Other 'human based' approaches can be just as effective so they'll also get space when they cross the horizon.

Independent life technologies

Independent Life Technologies is a company developing and providing toys, communication and learning aids for special need children and adults at an affordable price.
alistairm 's insight:

There is a significant crossover between technology tools to support independent living/recreation and technology tools to support learning. This website has over 500 products arranged by different categories (for example adapted electronics, mounting devices, sensory devices, capability switches, adapted toys etc) and it might contain useful tools that wouldn't necessarily appear in an educational catalogue.

alistairm 's insight:

Currently very few visually impaired (VI) people progress to higher maths and science and one of the key reasons is the difficulty in hndling symbolic notation. This website is a great starting point for people with VI who are good at maths / science to get a head start on accessing STEM subjects.
