Why Inclusive Classroom Technology Matters

Inclusion isn’t a checkbox exercise. It’s about fostering a sense of belonging for all students, regardless of background, ability, or learning style. When students feel safe and supported, they’re more engaged, motivated, and ultimately, successful.  Inclusive classrooms benefit everyone, including students with specific needs. They cultivate empathy, collaboration, and critical thinking skills that are essential for thriving in a complex world.

Despite the growing emphasis on inclusivity in education, there are still numerous challenges that educators face in creating truly inclusive classrooms. These challenges include:

  1. Diverse Learning Needs: Students come from various backgrounds and have different learning styles, abilities, and needs. Traditional teaching methods may not effectively cater to these diverse needs, leading to disparities in learning outcomes.
  1. Physical and Cognitive Disabilities: Students with disabilities may encounter barriers that hinder their full participation in the learning process. These barriers can range from physical obstacles in the classroom to a lack of accessible learning materials.
  1. Language and Cultural Differences: English language learners and students from diverse cultural backgrounds may struggle to fully engage with the curriculum if it doesn’t reflect their linguistic and cultural experiences.

ViewSonic Interactive Display Features That Foster Inclusive Learning

Inclusive classroom technology refers to the use of tools, resources, and digital platforms designed to support diverse learners and promote inclusivity in the educational environment. Inclusive classroom technology can help to overcome challenges in the classroom by allowing for personalized learning experiences tailored to individual student needs and offering built-in accessibility features. ViewSonic interactive displays and ViewSonic’s myViewBoard digital whiteboarding software offer a number of features that help to promote personalized learning and accessibility in the classroom including:

1. Live Captions

ViewSonic’s Live Captions displays speech-to-text captions on the Whiteboard for Windows screen in real-time. This can be useful for people who are hard of hearing, environments that are too noisy or the presenter’s voice is too quiet, and classrooms with foreign language learners.

2. Immersive Reader

ViewSonic has partnered with Microsoft to make reading more accessible for all and to better support student reading development. Immersive Reader is a powerful text reader that provides students with a read-along component to teaching materials. In addition, Immersive Reader highlights words while the Read Aloud function runs to make it visually clear where in the text all students can follow along.

3. Smallboards

ViewSonic’s ViewBoards for Education give teachers the ability to split the myViewBoard Whiteboard into up to six Smallboard workspaces. Students can independently draw on their own whiteboard side-by-side, and then share with their peers what they’ve created.

4. Visual Aids for Color Blindness

For those in need of color-blind support, ViewSonic’s myViewBoard Whiteboard offers a variety of different visual filters. There are different types of color blindness, and depending on what type of color blindness a person has will affect their ability to discern and/or differentiate between colors.

  • Deuteranomaly – A type of color blindness that makes green appear redder.
  • Protanomaly – A type of color blindness that makes red look greener and duller.
  • Protanopia and Deuteranopia – These types of color blindness prevent the individual from being able to tell the difference between red and green at all.
  • Tritanomaly – This type of color blindness makes it difficult to distinguish the difference between blue and green, and between yellow and red.
  • Tritanopia – This type of color blindness makes the individual unable to tell the difference between blue and green, purple and red, and yellow and pink. It also mutes colors, making them appear less bright.
  • Monochromacy – Prevents the discerning of any color at all and can also cause the individual to be more sensitive to light, and to have trouble seeing clearly. This is the least common type of color blindness and is known as complete color blindness.
