Special education primarily consists of a variation of educational services that address the individual differences and needs of students with physical or mental disabilities, as well as behavioural disorders. This practice ensures a different approach to teaching that is better suited for such students and will allow for increased self-sufficiency and access to learning opportunities previously unavailable to them.
The integration of technology in education is a growing and innovative trend that can greatly magnify the results obtained from the processes of special education. Assistive technology is highly rated as one of the methods designed to make special education more efficient. It refers to the devices and services that are used to improve the functional capabilities of students with disabilities
Amongst others, assistive technology will be one of the key topics discussed at the “Education Innovation Summit”, set to take place on 31 May 2018 at the Hilton, Sandton in Johannesburg, South Africa. Hosted by IT News Africa, the summit is designed to bring together innovation leaders and the academic community to accelerate innovative thinking in education. It will further provide discussion topics about cutting-edge education technology challenges facing the industry today. Moreover, the summit will explore technology innovations that will enhance teaching and learning in the academic institutions.
Under the theme “Transforming Education with Technology”, the Education Innovation Summit promises to create opportunities for valuable conversations as the event will encourage interactive, roundtable discussions and case studies from leading academics, CIOs, regulators, NGOs, service providers and EduTech entrepreneurs, all sharing their experiences on what works and what does not.
