Change the Way You Approach Accessibility
Thursday, May 16, 2019 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm EDT
Presented by Jason Don Forsythe, Senior Solutions Engineer, Blackboard
Accessibility is a topic that schools and districts continue to struggle with as learning opportunities and technologies expand our potential to reach more learners in new ways. District leaders have also begun to consider a more holistic definition of inclusivity as they modify policies, requirements, and professional-development expectations. From websites to learning management systems, we are able to create even more instructional opportunities for our students. The content we create and share must take into account this broader definition of inclusivity—learning needs, access issues, and a more mobile and diverse student population than ever before.
Attend this edWebinar to learn how to provide a more accessible and equitable learning environment and experience for all learners. We will share best practices, tips, and tools districts can use to move toward greater inclusivity. This presentation will be of interest to educational professionals, webmasters, superintendents, tech leaders, special-education coordinators, and principals. There will be time to get your questions answered at the end of the presentation.
