Symposium Four: New Practices : Proceedings from the Ed-ICT International Network
Transitioning to and from post-compulsory education often poses problems on students, especially students with disabilities. The fourth Ed-ICT symposium at the FernUniversität in Hagen aimed at discussing new practices, identifying problems and challenges during transition processes, and developing innovative solutions for both individuals and institutions. A variety of experts has been invited to ensure representation among the key stakeholders such as transition specialists, technology specialists, service providers, faculty, researchers and people with disabilities. Together these experts worked on questions like: How can technology help people with disabilities with transitions in the education system? What are typical problems that people with disabilities experience with technology and the accessibility of technology during transitions? Who are the different stakeholders involved, and do we need other or different stakeholders? What role does technology play in the different settings of the education system? This research report documents the contributions and results of the two-day symposium.
