Wondering how “accessibility” and “usability” apply to digital materials and technologies used in today’s classrooms? If so, join leaders from the National Center on Accessible Educational Materials to broaden your understanding of accessible materials and technologies that are usable across the widest range of student variability. Explore indicators of accessibility and how they apply to both the content and the technology used to deliver the content.
