Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Making a learning environment accessible for everyone is critical to a successful inclusive classroom. Today's classrooms are diverse and include English Language Learners and students with learning challenges, whether they have been identified or not. Every teacher needs to be able to create and deliver content in a way that is accessible to each individual student. Fortunately, teachers already have free technologies at their disposal to assist with this. Join us as we explore strategies and tools that facilitate an inclusive learning environment.

Session Goals:

Recognize why accessibility is important
Understand the scope of who benefits from accessible materials
Demonstrate 6 free Microsoft tools that facilitate powerful accessible learning experiences
Identify easy new habits, hacks, and tools to ensure material is accessible to all
