E-inclusion: Digital equality - young people with disabilities

, : E-inclusion: Digital equality - young people with disabilities. Studies in Health Technology and Informatics 217(): 685-688

The United Nations' position is that digital access is a matter involving equality between groups of people, the securing of democratic rights, and equal opportunities for all citizens. This study investigates digital equality in school and leisure between young people with and without disabilities. A cross-sectional design with group comparisons was applied. Participants were young people (10-18 years of age) with disabilities (n=389) and a reference group in about the same ages. Data were collected by a survey focusing on access to and engagement in ICT activities in school and during leisure time. The results demonstrated young people with disabilities had restricted participation in computer use in educational activities, in comparison to young people in general. During leisure time young people with disabilities had a leading position compared to the reference group with respect to internet use in a variety of activities. Beneficial environmental conditions at home (and the reverse in schools) are discussed as parts of the explanation for the differing engagement levels at home and in school, and among young people with disabilities and young people in general. Schools need to prioritise use of ICT by young people with disabilities.

In contrast with other species of chironomids (9-12 components) a lower heterogeneity (4 components) of free Hb from the hemolymph of P. danubialis larvae was revealed. A monomeric and polymorphic Hb (Hb 2, a and b components) and a dimeric and po...

Enzymology tends to focus on highly specific effects of substrates, allosteric modifiers, and products occurring at low concentrations, because these are most informative about the enzyme s catalytic mechanism. We hypothesized that at relatively h...
