Even in times without a corona pandemic, digital teaching is generally a valuable format for diverse, inclusive teaching. Particularly students with special needs can benefit from digital teaching. However, it also poses certain challenges for this target group, which is why we ask you, as teachers, to continue to ensure the accessibility of digital teaching even in this particular situation, despite the potentially high level of stress that you all might experience now. In the following, we are particularly concerned with accessibility for students with hearing or visual impairments, but also, for example, for students with limited mobility (especially with regards to taking notes), impairments due to ADHD, dyslexia, mental illness, or impairments due to medication.
Keep in mind: Measures you take to increase the accessibility of digital teaching will benefit all students, who have to adapt to new digital teaching and learning formats !
