During this interactive session learn about current research focused on the status of digital inclusion of individuals with disabilities. Information and technology are ever-present in U.S. society and across the world, yet individuals with disabilities often face exclusion in their participation in digital environments. This may especially affect individuals of transition age, which is a time when the use of technology as a tool increases, especially in education and employment outcomes. In this presentation, questions about identity, social capital, community participation, human rights, opportunity, poverty, risk, and other areas of concern for students of transition age will be discussed. During this session participants will engage in a lively discussion about how youth are using digital technology, as well as how we might expand these opportunities to support transition to adult life.
