Determining the Accessibility of K-12 Digital Materials: Tools for Educators
Smith, Sean J.; Stahl, William
Journal of Special Education Leadership, v29 n2 p89-100 Sep 2016
This article explores the manner in which teachers and district leaders can further determine whether or not the digital materials they are considering are accessible for all learners--particularly those with disabilities--and appropriate to the accommodations and modifications provided in the brick-and-mortar school environment. The article introduces the issues of how to consider accessibility, discusses tools that have been created to assist in the evaluation of accessible digital materials, and reviews ways in which district leaders and individual classroom teachers can further determine whether digital materials used for blended and fully online learning experiences are appropriate for the learning demands of students, particularly those with disabilities.
