Abstract

The purpose of this chapter is to explore the literature in relation to perceptions of special and general education teachers about teaching students with special needs in phygital inclusive environments. Different cross-cultural experiences that dealt with this topic were discussed. Also, some focus group discussions (FGDs) were conducted with general and special education teachers to generate themes that can consolidate our understanding of how teachers address teaching students with special needs in phygital inclusive environments. The FGDs explored teachers' perceptions about teaching during and after the pandemic, how they adapted the students' individualized educational plans, assessment methods, and teaching strategies. Also, the FGDs explored teachers' perceptions in relation to how they addressed the learning loss their students experienced and which innovative strategies they used to address various learning issues. The chapter will include recommendations for teachers and practitioners on how to promote the education of students with special needs in phygital learning.
