IEL 2010 summary

09./10. September 2010

This week, the 3rd workshop on Inclusive E-Learning took place on Thursday and Friday, 9th/10th September. For the first time the workshop was hosted in the UK by the Department of Education and Professional Studies at King’s College London. Following two successful previous workshops in 2008 (Maastricht/The Netherlands) and 2009 (Rostock/Germany), this year 11 participants from Germany and UK discussed how inclusive systems can provide for both people with and without special needs and where are the limits of these demands. The six workshop presentations addressed a wide range of different topics from supporting deaf people over talking with computers to games helping illiterate people to learn. The results of the following discussions pointed out links between different kinds of special needs and that assistive technology should tackle attributes describing individual needs rather than just dealing with traditional labels like blind, deaf, old, etc. Furthermore the workshop showed how such events can be used to learn about cultural differences in the area of inclusive systems and assistive technology within Europe.

More information about the workshop series can be found at http://iel.mixxt.org. Details on how to order the proceedings of the workshop and what’s next will follow soon. The next IEL workshop is already planned and presumably will take place in Glasgow in September 2011.
