Abstract

This research investigates the potential application and use of ICT in the development of peersupport networks centered on learners with Specific Learning Difficulties at third level education. Utilising a theoretical model based on both the social and medical models of disability, it is intended to develop a system that will allow learners to develop through interaction with their peers actionable education frameworks, adaptive learning strategies and reusable learning resources in a safe and contextualised learning environment. Primary research will be performed with the student population of Waterford Institute of Technology as a case study. The longitudinal goal is the improved retention, resilience and performance of the target population.
