The 2005 Project had three phases:

Research

Piloting e-learning

Customising toolbox resources

diversity
sensory impairment, involving vision, hearing or speech

physical or mobility impairment

psychological or psychiatric impairment (or mental illness)

disabilities that may result in multiple impairment, such as cerebral palsy or head injury

cognitive or intellectual disability

learning disabilities including Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

medical conditions and other disabilities. 

Diversity
slide6
Students with a disability had:

a lower propensity to undertake AQF Cert. III and above (38%) cf. all VET students (46%)

subject success rates lower than for all VET students (75% cf. 82%)

a lower propensity to complete full AQF qualifications than all VET students (13% cf. 18%)

case studies
to inform e-learning practitioners – in particular the various communities of practice associated with the target learners

to add to the knowledge base and demonstrate the use of e-learning for learners with disabilities

to explore learning issues, motivation, context and appropriate technologies

to gather a range of responses from those involved in the project in different ways and at different times

Case Studies

Putting knowledge into practice

Fun & portable – take the learning home

Confidence

what critical thing have you learnt from this project
I’ve never worked with anyone with any kind of disability so I feel like I’ve personally gained. I was a bit shaky at the start, but once you develop the relationship with the students and a different level of communication and a new approach to teaching, to me it’s a whole new experience

With the new technology, the students are more into it than what they have been in previous years. The students have been a lot more interested.

So many of our students are visual, creative learners. Having a range of strategies caters for that range of learning methods.

There\'s a lot of spill over. It\'s not just what you guys are doing in TAFE. It\'s extended into your home and social lives.

don’t underestimate people with disabilities

I feel like we\'ve just got the tip of the iceberg

What critical thing have you learnt from this project?
more comments
Having a support teacher for the students was important

Being creative with technology.

Seeing someone on TV and saying, "Yep, I\'m going to do that"

Sophisticated and simple technology. The thing I was impressed with is that these technologies are day-to-day things, not just occasional things.
