This volume brings together chapters which collectively address issues relating to inclusive language education and technology. Topics include language teaching to the Deaf, Hard of Hearing and students with dyslexia, benefits of multimodal approaches for language learning, examples of software use in the language classroom, and copyright matters. The book demonstrates not only a commitment to inclusive practices but suggests practical ideas and strategies for practising and aspiring language teachers and those in support roles. The book also provides case studies and relates the issues to theoretical and policy frameworks. In drawing on different European perspectives, the book aims to promote discussion and collaboration within an international community of practice, especially about the role of technology in widening and strengthening opportunities for teachers and pupils alike and ensuring more effective Modern Foreign Language teaching, learning and assessment for all learners.
