RSCON#4: Social change, disability and diversity

This is the second time I participate in the Reform Symposium. The first time, in 2011, I participated with Flip cams see; smart phones and digital cameras do. This time I will not be talking about learning technologies, but diversity and disability. 

I have been part of a committee (CAEDEBA) for about 9 years providing support to students with disabilities from the School of Librarianship at Universidad Central de Venezuela. My session will be a sort of reflection in a loud voice about my experience in CAEDEBA and the role , I believe , teachers should have to help integrate and include students with disabilities in the classroom. A place where they are getting more and more opportunities to study and become part of their communities (integration). However, our responsibility to guarantee equal opportunities (inclusion) to them is even greater.
