Technology plays a critical role when it comes to school districts assuring that equitable learning opportunities are accessible for ALL students, especially those with disabilities, learning differences, and English language learners, as well as students from lower socio-economic communities. In addition to making certain that all students have access to their needed course content and tools, school leaders need to ensure that the information they provide to the public, parents, guardians, and staff is readily accessible on any technology device. The needs inherent in guaranteeing accessibility for all go beyond meeting the legal requirements defined in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The accessibility policies and practices school leaders implement must be consistently vocal and visible to all within the communities they serve.
In this edWeb podcast, two leading-edge superintendents join with the director of technical assistance at CAST (originally known as the Center for Applied Special Technology) in an interactive discussion around the strategies used to successfully lead accessibility for all. Training procedures for providing teachers and staff with the skills to effectively leverage technology to assist students, parents, guardians, and staff are reviewed.
This recorded edWeb podcast is of particular value to superintendents, K-12 school and district leaders, and aspiring school leaders.
