SETT – A Framework for Making Informed Decisions About Inclusive Technologies Technology is a tool that serves a set of education goals, and if we don’t think about what we want the technology for first, we end up with technology driven solutions that have very little impact on the lives of children and in our educational system Linda Roberts, U.
