Inclusive Educational Technology
Education is a resource which can transform lives, raise aspirations and build futures. We believe everyone has the right to learning that is inclusive, fair and life enhancing; and that technology has the potential to improve how children and adults interact with education throughout their lives. We will support this through our research into accessible education technology; our practice in East London and beyond; and through our teaching, including our own MSc. As accessible EdTech becomes more disruptive so new outcomes are possible. Too many EdTech solutions focus on the product, or the individual learner, and forget that support for teachers, parents and Governments are essential too. So we will work hard to ensure it is affordable; acceptable to users; of high enough quality; and provided within the systems that make it work, in the classroom and at home. GDI Hub is developing a suite of new technologies to aid inclusive learning - these range from tactile tools to cultural exploration kits and working with partners to identify opportunities for leapfrog technologies to transform the learning experience.
