    If you’re an AEM State Contact and/or a NIMAC State Coordinator, you play a critical role in ensuring that accessible educational materials are provided in a timely manner to the students in your state who need them. Whether you’re new or have a history in this position, please join the NIMAC and the AEM Center as we discuss the importance of these roles, responsibilities, and the technical assistance and resources available to you. We’ll reserve plenty of time for your questions. This is the first of two joint webinars to support the work of AEM State Contacts and NIMAC State Coordinators.

    During the past decade, federal education and civil rights accessibility statutes related to Ed Tech materials and delivery systems have increasingly converged. References to Section 508, WCAG2 AA, Universal Design, and Universal Design for Learning are now commonplace in both federal and state procurement policies. Accessibility support is best designed in rather than added on, and while it exists as a compliance challenge, it can also accelerate product differentiation: personalization is based on learner variability, including students with disabilities, ELLs, and those in poverty. This session offers guidance and resources from the National Center on Accessible Educational Materials (AEM Center) and its work with SETDA to facilitate product designs that, while essential for some students, expand opportunities for all.
