Accessibility to Learning: Removing Barriers for Students

16 Nov

My purpose for this PD session offered at the ATLE (Alberta Technology Leaders in Education) Conference was to share the many resources and tools available for students and staff to allow diverse learners to


explore and

create in their learning environment.

I have three categories of accessibility resources that I am sharing: software, mobile devices and online. For software one can look at Windows 7, Office 2010, Read & Write Gold (v10), Audacity, Dragon Naturally Speaking (v11). With mobile devices, I am showcasing iPad, iPod and smartphone capabilities. And finally, in the online world, Internet Explorer 9, Google Chrome, and Phonecasting.

Please check out my presentation notes at

I hope that my information gives you some assistance and ideas in supporting students within your schools. And that this support doesn’t have to be expensive, time consuming or difficult.
