Reducing the digital divide: the role of Education
Rapid advances in information and communication technologies (ICT) are changing lifestyles across the globe. However, many people with disabilities and elderly people experience difficulties in engaging with ICT and therefore may be prevented from fully enjoying its benefits.
The ENTELIS seminar “Reducing the digital divide: the role of Education” will be held in Dublin on the 12th of November is dedicated to the role of education in bridging the digital divide.
Universal Design in Education
The drive to increase participation in higher education is often at odds with the need to encourage and develop all students to be technically proficient and yet creative, independent and socially aware thinkers that are engaged with the world outside of the campus walls.
In collaboration the Universal Design in Education conference will be held in the same venue as the ENTELIS seminar. This is a two day conference consisting of a series of workshops, keynote speakers, exhibitions and a 24 Hour Universal Design Hackathon.
