EdTech for All: Creating Accessible Digital Content

Wed. September 21, 2022 | 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm CDT

As you shift to more blended, technology-rich instruction, ask yourself these questions:

– Are you creating more digital content than ever before?
– Is your digital content truly accessible to all students?
– Would your content be accessible to students with visual/hearing/motor impairments or neurodiversity?

Digital accessibility isn’t just a recommendation; it’s an imperative. Without it, we as educators risk expanding the digital divide and leaving some of our students behind academically.

Fortunately, digital inaccessibility is not a given. By intentionally and thoughtfully considering accessibility in the initial phases of content design, we can develop content that is available to all learners, based on the latest research-backed guidelines for digital accessibility. Join us to explore the qualities of and best practices for creating accessible digital curricular content. Along the way, you’ll discover how to make titles, headings, formatting, hyperlinks, and visual content accessible, as well as the edtech tools that make implementing robust digital accessibility a breeze.

Illinois educators who attend live can earn 1.0 PD credit.
