Nowadays, it is widely accepted that Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is used in every step of education. Educators and students face a great challenge and have to cover a distance that separates the knowledge and skills given by schools, today, from the knowledge and skills necessary for the future of the citizens of the emerging knowledge society.
Moreover, ICT under pedagogical conditions can be one of the most important tools for educators and students to develop cognitive, social and technological skills in order to be able to respond critically and creatively, to supplement the needs of the new social and economic reality that is constantly changing. Therefore, it seems to be more important for students to learn how to be able to communicate, to share, to use information and to solve complex problems, instead of using ordinary skills. The crucial case, which is still open, is that students of the twenty-first century will need to be taught different skills than those learned by the students of the twentieth century therefore it is vital for educators to be able to provide those skills.

- Purpose
If we really believe that the resignation and sterile negation are the other side of the same coin, then we need to look for new, original and innovative ideas that could lay the foundation of an alternative and creative approach to addressing educational issues.
Despite various educational policies and decisions, the educators play a key role in the adoption and development of any educational innovation; for this reason, educators are considered to be the most important factor in education reforms. Therefore, the attitudes of educators towards computers have been addressed and have been described as the key to successful integration of ICT in education.
The aim of the course is to provide knowledge on contemporary educational approaches that draw on the principles of inclusive education and promote equal learning, participation and opportunities for all students, including students with disabilities. It is also an approach on the significance of the contribution of ICT use in the classroom as a learning tool and especially in the education of disabled students as it assures accessibility and active participation for all students. In addiction teachers, trainers and education managers will gain an outlook on best practices and concrete ways to use ICT to empower and support inclusive education
