Equity4All: Access and the Narrative of Frederick Douglass

Inclusion Collaborative Conference

Technology in education holds promise for creating more accessible learning environments for students with disabilities, but is this promise being delivered? Too often digital learning materials are just as inaccessible as pen and paper. The CISL Project at CAST is creating a suite of innovative tools, including the Clusive Learning Environment to harness the power of technology to support the diverse needs of today’s learners. These tools will provide not just accessibility, but also learning supports, scaffolds, and adaptivity based on the principles of Universal Design for Learning, to create improved learning opportunities for all.
In this session we will explore how a challenging core literary text can be accessible to all learners. This session will start with an overview of the tool as well as content as it is expected that not all participants may be familiar with the material or the technology.
