Abstract:In today's society, the information technology and communication have been incorporated in the educational context as a learning tool attached to the teaching and learning of students. From an educational point of view the paper presents a number of advantages both for students and for teachers. The adoption and use of new technologies within the teaching-learning processes is becoming more demanding and requires more training of teachers and the acquisition of digital competence
The aim of this paper is to address from a practical point of view the implementation of new technologies in the sphere of attention to diversity. From the perspective of the current approach in dealing with diversity (i.e. inclusive education) this paper proposes the use of new technologies as a tool in the classroom. This research provides a response to individual differences and different rates of learning of the pupils.
From this new perspective of inclusive education principles the education is more flexible and adapted to the educational needs of pupils, including the use of new technologies in the classroom. This objective is to develop a learning where the student is the protagonist in building their knowledge. A tour of the various investigations into learning through digital classrooms will provide us with proposals and contributions that underlie them.
The present proposal focuses on digital inclusion of a technological tool to remove any barriers in the educational participation and communication. With the assumption of this challenge we developed our proposal: a digital model of inclusive classroom attention to diversity.
Keywords: innovation, technology, research projects.
