Abstract

This presentation will highlight the approach that's in progress to engage K-12 systems in addressing the accessibility of digital curriculum and instruction. We will share the process we used in engaging a cohort of "early adopters" in a collaborative learning model as a non-threatening approach to improving each system's digital accessibility. Attendees will hear from the organizers and cohort participants and will come away with tools they can use to address digital accessibility in their own organizations.
