Join Adam Wilton and Andrea Wallace for a lively presentation about digital accessibility and technology, and the integral roles these have in student success. School closures due to COVID-19 and the quick move to virtual instruction placed a spotlight on the accessibility of classroom materials and the role of educators as creators and curators of learning content. Further, the shift to virtual learning highlighted the high importance of access technology skills among students with visual impairments. This presentation will focus on strategies and approaches to championing digital accessibility in K-12 learning communities as well as integrating access technology instruction and programming into hybrid learning spaces (e.g., in-person and virtual). Participants will learn how to be a champion for accessibility and promote the creation of "born accessible" materials, as well as learn the importance of introducing technology early to students with visual impairments.
