Abstract

There has been much debate in recent years about how to promote regular and effective use of digital technologies for learning in schools. Alongside this, there has been much critique of how inclusive education policies are enacted in schools, often said to amount to little more than integration rather than inclusion. This paper will bring these debates together by exploring pedagogical practice in relation to digital technologies and inclusion. It will draw on a wider project carried out with visually impaired children as an illustration to investigate how disabled children use and experience digital technologies to learn. In particular it will consider teachers’ inclusionary and exclusionary practices with technology to understand the implications. It will call for teachers to be supported further to develop inclusive digital pedagogy.
