Our Videos & Special Need Students

Often traditional learning and teaching methods and materials do not accommodate the requirements of special needs students. Having the ability to learn at their own speed and independent of the learning speeds of other students is essential if a special needs student is to be helped to reach their full potential.

And this is where having access to our online K-12 curriculum videos can really help to provide those students with special needs, with a very real and tangible learning solution.

While many special needs students and children will require a one-on-one assistance from a teacher or tutor, where our online educational videos stands head and shoulders above most other forms of educational and curriculum based material, is that they provide a much more dynamic way of providing the information to the student. The nature of video is such that it captures and maintains the attention of the student much more effectively than the material that requires reading.

In situations where disabilities such as dyslexia, blindness and sight impairment are involved, the ability to learn by the use of video is a much more effective solution. Zane Education intends to continue the development of this website to a point where a special section of the site will specifically cater for the blind.

However there are those special needs students that can also use our videos to improve their literacy and reading levels, while learning the particular topic or subject of their choice.

All of our 1,000+ online videos utilise a dedicated form of sub-titling specifically to provide options and alternatives for students. This option of being able to simply listen to the presentation, or alternatively read the presentation, or even both, while the video is being watched, enables the student to improve their reading capability, while at the same time catering for the special needs of those students with hearing difficulties or deafness.
