The Agency and the UNESCO Institute for Information Technologies in Education have collaborated on a joint project to develop a Review of Innovative Practice – a report presenting concrete examples of practice of the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) with people with disabilities in different educational contexts and settings.
The Review considers examples of practice that can be considered to be ‘innovative’ within the specific educational setting and wider societal context they were situated within.
The aims of the Review are to use international examples – case studies and vignettes – to:
- Highlight a range of different purposes for using ICT in education for people with disabilities;
- Identify possible key messages for policy and practice in this area.
The examples of practice cover different parameters of ICT application:
- Countries and geographical regions - Europe, Asia, Latin America, CIS and Baltic States - in order to show that ICT can be applied effectively in very different economic and ICT infrastructure situations;
- Sectors of education school, vocational, higher and even adult education;
- Types of ICT equipment and their application in educational settings, from simple multimedia tools (such as CDs or DVDs) to the development of new research based software or applications.
The full Practice Review report along with background materials can be downloaded from the Agency publications web area.
