Abstract
Educating people with special educational needs (SEN) is a hot topic these days. Many multimedia educational tools have been generated with the support of ICT to assist children receiving SEN education. Teaching supported by new technologies should guarantee contents accessibility. However, these tools are not 100% suitable because the adaptation process they implement does not take into account all pupils¿ educational needs. In this article, we argue that SEN teaching can be improved with a) better curriculum adaptations, and b) a better definition and use of accessible multimedia tools. We also think that it would be interesting to use semi-automatic tools to help educators to create or select adapted programmes of study for pupils with SEN. We present a framework to support teachers and multimedia educational tools developers in educating SEN pupils and its application to Proyecto Aprender (Learn Project)
