Abstract

Today, providing all learners with technology-supported learning environments has become important due to the use of new technological advancements in learning environments. All learners have the right to benefit from these advancements in an equal learning environment. One of the factors which play an important role in providing an equal and effective learning environment is learner characteristics. The learning pace and style of each learner are different. Universal design principles and assistive technologies play a big role in providing learning environments in the context of such individual differences. From this point of view, creating inclusive learning and inclusive learning environments which consider learner variety and differences specific to each learner and providing technology-supported learning environments utilizing universal design principles and assistive technologies are discussed in this chapter.
