The i-access conference report: Accessible Information Provision for Lifelong Learning is now available online. The main conference of the Agency i-access (Accessible information provision for Lifelong Learning) project was hosted by the Agency and the Danish Ministry of Education.
The aim of this conference was to identify the implications of international and European policy on accessibility for information providers in the field of education.
Approximately 70 participants took part in workshops and discussions:
- Key information providers for lifelong learning (European Schoolnet, International Association of Universities), including decision makers and multipliers (journalists and researchers in the field) nominated by the Agency’s country representatives;
- Representatives of stakeholder groups working with accessible ICT (Adobe, Daisy Consortium, Microsoft, W3C/WAI) and
- International organisations (UNESCO and G3ict).
They reflected on policy requirements and current practice regarding the accessibility of information relevant for lifelong learning. All parties identified key issues relevant for developing a set of proposed recommendations. The 7 identified areas of recommendations as well the conference report are available for download on the i-access project web area.
The Agency’s i-access project is co-financed by a European Community Grant under the Lifelong Learning Transversal Programme, Key Activity 1: Policy Co-operation and Innovation.
