1st Workshop on Open Learning and Inclusive Education Through Information and Communication Technology (OLIE-ICT 2021)

Scope:

Implementing accessibility and inclusion in education must consider each student’s skills as well as their competence. Among the diverse educational challenges, there is a need to include people with disabilities in regular classrooms and provide these people with equal access to learning opportunities. Unfortunately, in current educational settings, the learning resources, platforms, pedagogies and methodologies were not designed well enough to support people with a particular kind of disability. To ensure universal learning, it is necessary to take some actions, including making accessible the learning resources available to all students. On the other hand, it is mandatory to ensure the learning environments, resources, contents, meet quality standards under the universal design principles, the expectations of people with or without disabilities. For inclusive education, the community needs to develop, share and enhance open educational resources, pedagogies and learning strategies supported by technology in line with accessibility guidelines and contextual expectations. This workshop focuses on the application of ICT in improving inclusive education across different contexts. The workshop aims to assemble educators, researchers and practitioners to exchange ideas and discuss the development that pertains to subjects around inclusive education with particular emphasis on contextual case studies and real-world applications.
