Build With Us
Students and teachers, we need your input as we build CISL tools to make sure they meet your needs! You will act as partners in the design process by experimenting with features and contributing your opinions. Our aim is to design tools that provide students with and without disabilities access to engaging, high-quality digital learning materials, and to do that we need to hear from you.
Co-designer students and teachers will have a say in the features, functions, and design of our software. As a co-designers, you and your students can:
- Try out and critique existing software with similar features
- Brainstorm possible new features
- Sketch ideas
- Vote on alternative mockup concepts
- Discuss pros and cons of different features and design choices
- Help prioritize software enhancement ideas
- Test prototypes
Students will get first-hand experience being part of a software design and development team. The time commitment for co-designers may be in the range of 1-4 hours a month.
In order to meet the needs of a wide range of learners, we hope to recruit a group of co-design partners that reflect the diversity of the country’s students and teachers. We anticipate that CISL users will vary in respect to ability, gender, race, comfort with technology, primary language, and many other factors. We welcome these differences in the design of our tools.
Want to create with us?
We need student and teacher volunteers to co-design products now, and to act as beta-testers once tools have been developed. Please fill out the CISL Interest Form to let us know how you’d like to be involved.
