Find out how smart devices, 3D printers, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, and other emerging technologies can help create Accessible Educational Materials (AEM) — those materials and technologies usable for learning across the widest range of individual variability. Accessible educational materials are a key component in the implementation of Universal Design for Learning as an approach for making the curriculum more responsive to the needs of our increasingly diverse learners. This session will address the implications of emerging technologies as a tool to expand access to educational materials with an emphasis on best practices for ensuring inclusive solutions are developed.
