Abstract

Inclusive education has grown from the belief that education is a basic human right, and that it provides the foundation for a more just society. All learners have a right to education, regardless of their individual characteristics or difficulties (UNESCO, 2003). The educational needs of people with disabilities (PWD) are diverse. They need to acquire the fundamental knowledge that enables survival in society under the specific demands caused by functional limitations that hinder participation in ordinary education systems. In this setting, information and communication technologies (ICTs) are indeed a powerful tool to support education and the inclusiveness of the PWD. This paper will review the use of ICTs in education for PWD in an inclusive education setting, with the aim to explore the different possible uses of ICTs in inclusive education for PWD in the Asia region.
