iSmart project proposes the use of smart ICT based tools (such as smart phones, tablets and smart boards) for all levels of formal, non-formal and informal learning exercises.
ICT is a key tool to help dyslexic learners in the classroom in both learning and teaching experiences as well as accessing or recording written information.
Many of the learning differences experienced when reading, writing, spelling, accessing the curriculum, learning vocabulary, improving phonic skills and assisting recording and presentation, become a smaller problem when ICT is used.
Some dyslexic learners also have co-ordination, sequencing and organisational difficulties. This may affect their handwriting, cause learners to produce less work or take a lot longer than expected. Once they have mastered the keyboard, a portable hand writing device can often liberate them, allowing them to concentrate on content rather than process.
