Technology alone will not bridge knowledge divides

There is an interesting article about a conference done by Abdul Waheed Khan named: "Technology alone will not bridge knowledge divides" held in Maastricht.

Abdul Waheed Khan is the UNESCO’s Assistant Director-General for Communication and Information, and in this event celebrated at the begining of this month, he expressed that knowledge societies should not be shaped and driven by technological forces but by societal choices, and told the audience how the educational process will be influenced by the new organization Internet as the main source of information.

mr Khan's theme is quite correct, but in the case of disabled people, accessible technology is a key component of bridging the digital or knowledge divide. To not recognise that in this specifc case that the design and availability of solutions, is in itself an excluding force would be too seriously underestimate the barrier that technology itself can create if poorly planned
