ICT Landscape review: The use of ICT in improving the educational participation and outcomes of children with disabilities.
Join the World Bank for the launch of ICT Landscape Review: The use of information and communication tech in improving the educational participation and outcomes of children with disabilities.
GDI Hub partnered with the World Bank to design and conduct the research, and author the report, which is a global knowledge product from the Inclusive Education Initiative supported by Norad and FCDO.
Despite tremendous potential, a gap exists between ICT advancements and their large-scale application in educating children with disabilities in low- and middle-income countries. Join us to learn about new findings from a review of the use of ICT in improving the educational participation and outcomes of children with disabilities.
The review explored how ICT supported the continued learning of children with disabilities during COVID-19 related school closures. The report shares insights from the experiences of multiple stakeholders, including teachers, parents and caregivers, government officials, and civil society. Global insights were supplemented with country case studies to draw out examples of what is and is not working across 6 P’s: people, products, pedagogy, policy, place, and provision.
Learn about our Innovation-Enabled Education For All approach that incorporates four interconnected components to harness the potential of educational and assistive technology into tangible and successful learning outcomes for children with disabilities.
