Importance of EdTech in Special Education Needs

In the context of COVID 19 and school closure, our SEN students have suffered more. As an educator, my focus is on finding ways of making a difference in shorter sprints. Ed-tech gives me the opportunity to achieve learning gains faster than any conventional method. Digital learning solutions have the potential to give layers of support that can accelerate learning. As an advocate for social emotional learning in education, I am also concerned of the emotional wellbeing of my students.

I have found Ed- Tech plays a vital role in providing emotional wellbeing for our SEN students too. It helps the student have the growth mindset, gives them small opportunities to succeed that builds self-esteem, goes at each individuals pace to keep their interest and motivation in learning, gives them end amount of repetition without bringing the sense of shame or humiliation. Dynamic technological learning solutions that are engaging is what I find serves us best to help our SEN students.
