The Long Road from Reactive to Proactive: Developing an Accessibility Strategy - YouTube

The Long Road from Reactive to Proactive: Developing an Accessibility Strategy

Implementing accessibility policies in higher education is no easy task. For many, it is easy to get caught in a cycle of reactive accommodation where larger accessibility policies are never implemented. So how do you transition from reactive policies to proactive policies?

 

Korey Singleton, the Assistive Technology Initiative Manager at George Mason University, will walk you through their two-year process of moving from reactive solutions to proactive accessibility policies. His own experience with how difficult it can be to shift campus climate and administrative support towards proactive accessibility is incredibly useful for other universities struggling with the same thing.

Is your institution proactive or reactive when it comes to accessibility?  Recent Accessibility lawsuits files against Harvard and MIT signal a significant challenge to all higher education institutions: it's time for a change. 


This webinar presents the hard earned wisdom and experience of the Assistive Technology Initiative at George Mason University.


The question of the moment is, do we act now or wait to get sued?

Case Study: 21CIF Scoop.it Magazine

Case Study: 21CIF Scoop.it Magazine | Technology and Teaching | Scoop.it
Teaching Information Fluency describes the skills and dispositions of information fluency adept searchers. Readers will receive in-depth information on what it takes to locate, evaluate, and ethically use digital information. The book realistically examines the abilities of Internet searchers today in terms of their efficiency and effectiveness in finding online information, evaluating it and using it ethically. Since the majority of people develop these skills on their own, rather than being taught, the strategies they invent may suffice for simple searches, but for more complex tasks, such as those required by academic and professional work, the average person’s performance is adequate only about 50% of the time. The book is laid out in five parts: an introduction to the problem and how search engine improvements are not sufficient to be of real help, speculative searching, investigative searching, ethical use and applications of information fluency. The intent of the book is to provide readers ways to improve their performance as consumers of digital information and to help teachers devise useful ways to integrate information fluency instruction into their teaching, since deliberate instruction is needed to develop fluency. Since it is unlikely that dedicated class time will be available for such instruction, the approach taken embeds information fluency activities into classroom instruction in language arts, history and science. Numerous model lessons and resources are woven into the fabric of the text, including think-alouds, individual and group search challenges, discussions, assessments and curation, all targeted to Common Core State Standards as well as information fluency competencies.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, March 21, 1:26 AM

Of course, more and more teachers are using technology today, and any survey will show how active technology, or interactive technology is gaining precendance over static technology. Technology is not just the projector and the white board, rather it is much more than that. While the use of powerpoint and word might be on the decline, current use of technology is aimed at developing online surveys, blogs, google spreadsheets, and google docs. My mentor checks answer sheets, and thesis papers online. She does this for multiple drafts as competently as if she were checking notebooks! The effective use of technology however also depends on back end support from the organisation and institution that encourages the use of technology. This includes software and hardware support to teachers who adhere to the BYOD concept. I have known of organisations that restrict updates of operating systems and antivirus software because they feel that updates might eat into bandwidth. Unfortunately, the BYOD devices of the teachers started to give trouble as lack of updates and patches were not available on time.
