As so many teachers have shifted their curriculum to include more blended, technology-rich instruction, 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 impairments or neurodiversity? By intentionally and thoughtfully considering accessibility in the initial phases of content design, we can develop content that is available to all learners. Join us to explore the qualities of creating accessible digital curricular content that works for everyone. With so many avenues for digital content and communication, it can be difficult to know how to make each accessible. In this session, we’ll discuss the best practices for creating accessible titles, headings, formatting, hyperlinks, and visual content across a variety of apps… plus, the edtech tools that will make implementing a breeze.
