This event is being sponsored by UNICEF, the Global Partnership for Education, the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the UK’s Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office. Dr Lynch who is an expert in children and disability, with a particular focus on the global south, will present an overview of challenges and role of digital accessibility as a possible tool to leverage inclusive education. He argues ‘EdTech must address fundamental issues of equity and support effective inclusion for all, but it is also important to consider the complexity of meeting an individual’s requirements with regard to achieving the right match with the individual’.
