Jim is 8 and is in junior school. He has been diagnosed with a visual impairment and, although he wears glasses, has trouble with traditional learning methods.
So, what will Jim expect in 2030?
By 2030, through effective course design that incorporates sound accessibility and inclusion practices as standard, Jim will be able to customise his digital learning environment and resources in the same way as other learners may wish to personalise theirs. Jim would expect his preferred “settings” to be portable and a part of his digital student ID so that whenever he logs on to any device, he is able to access his work. In addition, using data collected through his learning activities, Jim expects to be able to monitor his progress against his own targets and those set by his teachers, tutors and instructors.
