Information and communication technologies have created significant new opportunities for ensuring that all students can be full participants in regular classrooms and other places where young people learn. But technology is often distributed inequitably across schools and homes, and there is enormous variation in how students are invited to engage with and make use of the technologies that are available to them. Further, many technological resources for young people are developed without sufficient consideration of the requirements of students with special needs. CCT has conducted a range of projects that focus on different aspects of the need for equitable design, distribution, and use of technologies for learning.
