    Accessibility & Your Website

    Description: Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, school websites must be accessible to all individuals. This includes those who are blind or have low vision, are deaf or hard of hearing, have cognitive disabilities, and so on. By making adjustments to improve the accessibility of your website, you are creating a resource inclusive of all of your stakeholders - your students, their families, the community, and the public at large.

    In this session, you will learn why accessibility matters, find a tool to check the accessibility of your website, discuss the considerations that need to be made when designing and editing your district’s website, and practice creating accessible pages.

    Captions for All: The Writing's on the Wall

    Through demonstrations and tool exploration, you will learn how to implement the use of captions in your classroom as you facilitate each of the UDL guidelines - engagement, representation, and action and expression. Come with questions and walk away with the tools needed for captioned access in your classroom tomorrow.

    Open Your Windows & Let in the Accessibility

     With a new CEO and mission “to empower every person on the planet to achieve more,” Microsoft has really upped their game when it comes to the built-in accessibility features throughout Windows and Office 365. Join Jena Fahlbush to explore some of the latest features that could improve your students’ access to the curriculum. Text suggestions, dictation, and captioning are a few of the tools that will be highlighted. 

    Please note - to access these features, you must have the 2016 version of Office 365 and Windows 10 version 1803. In many cases, Windows can be updated to the latest version for free.

    Twitter Isn't Just for Your Students

     Learn how to create a Twitter account, use hashtags, follow leaders in education, and participate in Twitter chats to support UDL in your classroom and your personal learning network.
