Roundtable Discussion On Technology And Inclusive Education For Learners With Disabilities
October 22, 2018
On the 22nd of October at the Policy Innovation Centre, Microsoft Corporation, inABLE, and the Global Initiative for Inclusive ICTs (G3ict) hosted by the Strathmore Law School launched two new inclusive education tools to help education ministers and organisations communicate more effectively with ICT vendors about the need for accessible and inclusive technology in classrooms.
The idea was to bring together a group of leading Kenyan and international experts and practitioners from the technology sector, government, academia, and civic community to explore how education system institutions of all levels (county and national level) can integrate accessible information and communication technologies (ICT) into their policies and practices. The goal is to ensure that in Kenya, these institutions are well equipped to move toward a stronger commitment to making accessibility a part of their classrooms and school systems, including through ICT procurement and by having more productive engagements about digital inclusion with technology vendors.
