Creating digital tools to empower students
Digital technologies, if fully harnessed, can transform education for all students, especially those with disabilities. CISL, the Center on Inclusive Software for Learning, is creating a suite of innovative tools. These tools are designed to support today's diverse learner needs by making digital educational materials accessible, flexible, and engaging for all students.
The CISL Suite
Students find out what preferences and options work best for them in CISL’s learning preferences discovery tool.
Students apply their learning preferences in CISL’s flexible, adaptive and customizable digital reader.
Educators and curriculum developers create accessible, engaging digital materials in CISL’s supported authoring tool.
The promise and the challenge
Digital resources are available, but are they accessible? Digital materials have many benefits for schools and students and are increasingly used, but it’s challenging to find quality digital educational materials that work with promising assistive technologies to make them accessible for all students. We are currently researching accessibility features that we plan to apply in a way that puts students in control of their learning.
