    Abstract

    The differentiated and individualized instruction in ICT assisted learning environments enhances accessibility and promotes the equal participation of individual learners with a variety of needs, preferences and accessibility requirements. ICT has the potential to provide assistance, compensation and to enable potential, but if the interventions are not adequately designed they can present additional obstacles. Influencing factors in learning in general and in ICT assisted learning are considered to accommodate diverse learners in multicultural environments. Directions and potential topics of research and development in this field are: factors which influence ICT assisted teaching and learning of people with special needs; providing differentiation and individualization of learning resources, instructional methods and modes of delivery, teaching and learning approaches and strategies; design, implementation and evaluation of ICT assisted learning environments accommodating diverse learners; the competence of teachers and learners; the competence of organizations for providing ICT for diverse audiences.
