2023 Pennsylvania Department of Education (In-Person) Conference
37. Exploring Hidden Usability Features in Common Technologies
Thursday March 02, 2023 2:15 PM - 3:15 PM - Hershey Lodge and Convention Center
Educational experiences can be designed with inclusivity in mind. Flexibility is at the core of designing instruction to meet variable needs. There are several overlooked features built into commonly used educational tools such as those created by Microsoft, Google, and Apple. Participants will explore these features along with how they can be used to provide options to craft equitable, accessible, and empowering experiences for all learners. You'll be guaranteed to leave thinking, "I can't believe these features were here the whole time and I never knew it!"
General education and special education administrators and teachers, paraprofessionals, school psychologists, professional development staff, and families of students with disabilities are encouraged to attend.
Reasonable efforts will be made to accommodate individuals who have special needs as addressed by the Americans with Disabilities Act and who need assistance at this event. Contact: Debra Jordan at (610) 878-7224 or firstname.lastname@example.org
