S.02, Ep.09: Emphasizing Accessibility in Virtual Learning Programs
In this episode, CAST Disability & Digital Inclusion Lead Luis Perez chats with Mia Murphy and Chris Smith from the North Carolina Virtual Public School (NCVPS). Mia and Chris have been great partners in supporting the work of the technical assistance centers at CAST, especially the Center on Inclusive Technology and Education Systems (CITES). In 2022, CITES launched its Virtual Learning Project to learn about promising practices related to educating and supporting students with disabilities in virtual learning programs and their families. The CITES team connected with a number of school districts and organizations dedicated to virtual learning and we are excited to share the work of one of them, the North Carolina Virtual Public School.
