    Abstract

    Educational technology and Information Communication Technology (ICT) play an important role in creating an effective and adaptable learning environment, especially when teaching students with Special Educational Needs (SEN). This includes students with a range of physical, sensory, communication or cognitive disabilities in learning. This research note focuses on integration of students with special needs into e-learning and m-learning environments and discusses the existing level of ICT integration in blended learning environments, based on a review of state of the art literature. The emphasis for special needs education is on high individualisation and personalization of the study process so the research questions of this note focus on the competence registration of the SEN student in the planning, design, learning process and evaluation. The main objective is the development of a model for competence registration in the design of personalised blended learning environments to aid students' successful integration. Based on individual characteristics and competences, appropriate learning styles and approaches are introduced and planned in the individualised learning process.
