This presentation starts by defining the aims of accessible technology, inclusion and inclusive technology. We will then look at four generations of the development of accessible technologies from the 19th century until We'll continue by discussing an adapted form of the SAMR model of applying educational technology to accessible technologies.

Simon will talk about what is happening at the moment in ground breaking projects that can be described as Inclusion 2.0, to develop what he calls Accessible Technology 4.0. Simon will finish by speculating, given the first four generations, what Accessible Technology 5.0 might look like and investigate what AI, the IoT and what social scientific advances might bring to such future technologies.
