Having had a training session this morning with a group of Teachers at Christ the Redeemer Primary School, Accessibility was a topic of discussion. So, it is very timely that my friend and colleague, Ray Fleming, has just posted this on his blog site. Rather than rewrite it, I thought he wouldn’t mind if I just copied and pasted it.
From Ray’s blog Teaching Ideas and Resources:
Accessibility guide for teachers
We’ve just issued the third edition of our accessibility guide for teachers, and it’s available as a download from our accessibility site. The site also includes a number of accessibility video case studies.
The Accessibility: A Guide for Educators has been updated to include information on Windows 7 accessibility features, and current assistive technology product recommendations for teachers
This guide provides information about accessibility and accessible technology to help teachers ensure that all students have equal access to learning with technology, specifically:
- An understanding of accessibility and how it impacts the classroom
- Definitions of impairment types and technology solutions for each type of impairment
- Guidance on choosing accessible technology solutions
- Resources for more information
I wish everyone a very Happy Easter.
