Tools for preparing materials for students with special educational needs

Curricula, teaching methods, and materials are hardly ever investigated as possible causes of
a learning difficulty. However, according to the British Department for Education and Skills, learning difficulties can be caused by an unsuitable environment:

  • inappropriate grouping of pupils,
  • inflexible teaching styles,
  • or inaccessible curriculum materials.

The aim of our January drop-in session is to discuss the principles of materials development for students with special educational needs.

In the first part of the drop-in session Agnieszka Dziecioł-Pędich will talk about page layout, fonts, appropriate line spacing, the colour of the paper, the use of text windows and colourful overlays, etc.

In the second part of the drop-in session the focus will be on free tools teachers can use to modify the appearance of materials for students with special educational needs, including some functionalities of word processors and YouTube you are probably unaware of, online OCR tools, screen-reading software, tools for creating subtitles, tools for slowing down recordings, and more.
