The school closures across the globe during the spread of COVID-19, brought a new reality which forced educational systems to shift towards digital learning. However, the majority of teachers were not prepared for this change, as the majority relied on traditional forms of teaching during the massive school closures. Apart from that, not all students had the core competencies to succeed for the digital learning environments, such as self-regulation skills, motivation to learn, and technical knowledge/equipment. Specifically, research has shown that students with learning difficulties will keep struggling with digital learning environments, since their needs will still not be met during the online sessions. Therefore, six partners from the European educational context work together in the inspiring SLIDE project to tackle the systematic disadvantage of students with special educational needs in digital learning, and thus promote the social inclusion and educational success of all students in digital learning environments.
