From the Center on Technology and Disability

fingers on computer keyboardAs states and districts across the nation increase their use of technology to support instruction and communication, the issue of accessible content for students, families, and community members with disabilities needs to be front and center in the decision making process. Addressing digital accessibility takes a team-based approach.

Join the Center on Technology and Disability on Tuesday, May 23 from 2:30-4:00 PM/ET for an engaging panel discussion to learn how the state of Utah is collaborating across departments to develop strategies to increase digital accessibility at the state and district levels. Panelists from Utah will discuss accessibility challenges, the overarching infrastructure they developed on a state level, and break down the process they’ve established to ensure that materials are accessible to all audiences. Participants will have the opportunity to submit questions prior to the webinar to engage in an active Q&A with the panelists.
