Inclusion of Mobility-Impaired Children in the One-to-One Computing Era: A Case Study
Mangiatordi, Andrea
Mind, Brain, and Education, v6 n1 p54-62 Mar 2012
In recent times many developing countries have adopted a one-to-one model for distributing computers in classrooms. Among the various effects that such an approach could imply, it surely increases the availability of computer-related Assistive Technology at school and provides higher resources for empowering disabled children in their learning and communicating abilities. New environments are created in which technology is no more a specific solution, but a "matter of fact". This article describes three case studies involving children from Uruguayan special schools undergoing integration projects in mainstream schools. The children could count on a computer technology which did not mark them as "those who need some different tools," but as special users of the same tools as the rest of the students.
