Over the last five years, the AEM Center at CAST has worked with a cohort of eight states to identify and disseminate best practices related to the availability and use of high quality accessible educational materials and technologies. In this session, AEM state and district leaders will share their insights, strategies and lessons learned for ensuring the smooth roll-out of AEM and technology, including what potential partners can do to facilitate the process.
