I also believe that newtechnologies will not only facilitate access to the learning of people withdisabilities, but, thanks to new inventions and new resources available overthe years, will help to improve the quality of life of these People, helping tocounteract the disability that they suffer and including them in society,leaving aside all kinds of possible discrimination.
Secondly, I want to comment onthe great contributions that new technologies bring to the field of specialeducation, helping and encouraging access to learning for students who sufferfrom disability. In this way, I think that thanks to the use of new supportsthat the technologies offer will improve the teaching that these students willreceive in the schools, both ordinary and special.It should be considered that ITis becoming more and more present in the classroom and has begun to displacethe traditional textbook, so that changing the physical support of learningalso changes the way teachers teach, and in which students learn, so I thinkthat thanks to the introduction of IT’s and whenever they are used in a correctand responsible way, all the teaching-learning processes will improve.The current students have beenborn surrounded by technology, so from an early age they learn to live togetherand to use all these technological tools. While teachers have had to learn newknowledge about the use of all kinds of technological utensils that areincreasingly integrated into the day to day schools. For this reason, Iconsider it very important that teachers recycle and want to learn every daynew ways and techniques to improve the teaching-learning processes that givestudents, because in this way, will improve the education that these studentsreceive. Fromwhat was stated in the previous pages, I am ready to comment on the conclusionsdrawn from all the information mentioned above: first, we must highlight thenew role that ITs are getting within the system current education, as each timetheir presence is greater at all levels of education. But, for the correctintegration and use of all this educational technology, it is necessary to considerthe two main participations of the education, the teacher and the student.
Conclusionsand overall recommendations Possiblymany can access new technology without adaptations, if given theopportunity to practice long enough. Others will need to add a standardkeyboard or mouse. Some students may need settings in the screen settings, suchas increasing the size of the mouse pointer or the access icons to thedifferent applications. In some cases, it may be necessary to add a standardkeyboard or connect them to a conventional monitor (Luftig & Pavri 2017).Others will require specific support technologies. It is likely that a largepercentage needs the same adjustments that are made to fix the position of anotebook or folder, but this time for the netbook. The teaching and learningprocesses of motor-disabled children and young people are often limited bytheir inability to explore, experiment, and make mistakes to reflect on. Wepropose the use of the computer with flexible and open programs that can leadto multiple interactions, giving the opportunity to try, make mistakes, toreturn on what has been done and find a way to correct it.
It will be a processin which we will all surely have much to learn. As mediator between the studentand the computer, the teacher will propose activities that stimulate: Higherlevels of independence and autonomy of the students, experimentation and thepossibility of reflecting from the error, the development of communication andinteraction skills (See Appendix A for more informationon equipment). Something quite simple and economical can be placed on a tape ofnon-slip material, or change the angle of the support surface considering theneeds of the student both for data entry and for reading the monitor. Inclusionof technology in schools for students with motor disabilities.High-levelimplementation planTechnology or businesspractices used to augment the solutionBusiness process changesBusiness or technicalapproach · AdvancedCommunications: The exclusive connection through computers will give way to awide range of access devices and all countries will be able to access ahigh-speed network.
There is an accelerated tendency to include videophones,text phones, faxes and others. Without a doubt, one of the effects that isenvisaged will be the greater social integration of people who have so far hadlimited access to telecommunications, which will directly reverse the socialdifferences between the population with disability (Krotoski, 2011).· InteractiveMultimedia Systems: Multimedia systems (those that process, store and transmitimages, voice, text and data in an integrated way) offer the possibility to acton the contents of the same, thus emerging the interactivity. People withdisabilities benefit from the existence of multimedia services and applicationsthat will enable them, through the necessary adaptations, to perfect multimodalaccess on an equal basis (Krotoski, 2011). . An article by the Guardian states thatby providing technology support, data in the USA show positive results withpeople who had a mental disability and/or mild autism (Krotoski, 2011). The use of technology systemallows-through mental images created by the computer to eliminate theenvironmental overload of the same ones, keeping visible objects or familiar charactersin the memory of the computer, that can be controlled by the Therapists.
Itscurrent use is limited by the high cost of virtual technology However, thestrong competition and the lowering of the electronic components will allowthis technology to be available in a massive way over the next five years.Benefits ofsolving the problem · AdvancedCommunications: The exclusive connection through computers will give way to awide range of access devices and all countries will be able to access ahigh-speed network. There is an accelerated tendency to include videophones,text phones, faxes and others. Without a doubt, one of the effects that isenvisaged will be the greater social integration of people who have so far hadlimited access to telecommunications, which will directly reverse the socialdifferences between the population with Disability (Burgstahler, 2014).· InteractiveMultimedia Systems: Multimedia systems (those that process, store and transmitimages, voice, text and data in an integrated way) offer the possibility to acton the contents of the same, thus emerging the interactivity (Irvine News 2009).
People with disabilities benefit from the existence of multimedia services andapplications that will enable them, through the necessary adaptations, toperfect multimodal access on an equal basis (Burgstahler, 2014). Because there willbe a modification to the Hope facility there has been discussions of what typeof technology will be installed to help the students. The function oftechnology is to try to solve different needs that people with disabilitieshave, adapting their capacities to the environment. Alternative andaugmentative systems of access to information are aids for people with visualand/or auditory impairment.
Based on Sheryl Burgstahler, we can group aidtechnology into two groups: Discussion ofbusiness problem(s) HopeSchool is an Anaheim Union High School District site and is a school facility andtheir concentration are to help students with physical and mental disabilities.This site has approximately 100 students. Their main goal is that our patientsfeel safe, and listened to, obtaining the best professional, human andpersonalized treatment. The comfort of the school is given by cozy facilitiesand a great offer of medical services, specialties and schedules, which makesus reach all kinds of patients.
Although school is not set up 100% to accommodateall the students with special need, there are plans to get a bond to build a two-storystate of the art facilities that will include modern technology that willassist all students reach their potential with their disabilities. Brief companybackground This research project seeks todiscover, describe and interpret the factors that facilitate, or hinderlearning assisted by computer technology in special education, taking as astarting point the approach of the needs of a School, with a group of studentswith special educational needs due to deficiencies in physical aspects, such asblindness, visual decrease and hearing loss. We are interested in knowing thepossible inputs of informatics that, put into practice from the school, willallow the development and global integration of the people, with the aim ofoffering the possibility to offer a greater development the intellectualcapacities of each of them, regardless of the physical difficulties they maysuffer. Finally, it is an attempt to raise awareness among professionals in theeducational field of the need and importance of introducing computer science inits teaching and rehabilitative task from an inclusive and integrativeapproach, in which it points to the relationship with the computer As a path togreater autonomy of the individual, not only because it is a useful tool, butbecause it contributes to the construction of the knowledge and the valuesinvolved in the process.Abstract
