Inclusion of people with special needs in virtual education: the case of Bachillerato a Distancia of UdG
The article presents the context, methodology and advancements of an educational inclusion project at Sistema de Universidad Virtual of Universidad de Guadalajara. More than a decade ago inclusion has been a part of the international educational agenda because of discriminatory practices that have existed since the end of the 19th century (Guajardo, 1999). A pilot group of people with special needs from the CRIT de Occidente has tested the project. They use TIC’s as a means of inclusion. Technological and training needs were assessed through two different mechanisms. Even though the SUV had had inclusion experiences, some issues had not been addressed, especially in terms of accessibility and educational special needs. This article is a starting point to reflect on possible trends to meet a diverse educational demand.
