Ainara Zubillaga del Río y Carmen Alba Pastor


As the society integrates the inclusion model in their policies and dynamics, Universities will also articulating measures to address and respond to students with disabilities, and technology plays a crucial role as inclusive tool. The convergence process among technology, disability and education, necessarily involves the reformulation of the concept of accessibility, which has undergone an evolution from models focusing on purely technological issues to contextual approaches in which the educational scenario begins to emerge itself as an own environment. This paper proposes an innovative model of intervention in the processes of planning and development of accessibility, which tries to cover the gap generated by the technological frameworks, providing an educational approach capable of guiding decision-making process in order to implement an inclusive culture in Universities.
