Handbook for Inclusive Digital Education

This will propose a vision for inclusive education that covers contexts of hybrid and blended learning. It will identify drivers of exclusion, which will cover ‘traditional’ exclusion drivers, but also identify new elements of exclusion which may be new to or exacerbated by the response to COVID-19. We will use desk research and expert consultation to then isolate a set of success factors for digital inclusion, backed up by examples of good practice.

Areas we intend to address include:
– Digital Inclusion: how the design and use of digital technologies can promote educational equity
– Innovative Teaching: innovative practices and resources that enhance learning and teaching
– Personal Learning Environments: helping the learner transform their physical and virtual learning spaces to optimize learning
– Distance Learning – optimizing learning when physical contact is not an option
– Learner Voice – listening and acting on the voices of learners
– Learning Activities – using group work, problem-based learning, and games to enhance learning
– Learning in Families – optimizing learning when students are located in a family rather than a classroom environment
