COVID-19 has exacerbated inequalities in access to educational opportunities of marginalized populations, especially learners with disabilities. Yet limited emerging evidence from UNESCO Member States indicates that digital technology solutions can provide learners with disabilities with increased access to educational opportunities. The study will describe the opportunities and challenges related to the utilization of information and communication technology (ICT) to create more inclusive learning environments in Colombia. It will present and analyse key features of the national policy and one or two emerging initiatives. In each case, it will review, for each target population, accessible ICT products and services in formal and non-formal educational settings.
