October is National Disability Awareness Month, and to support the effort, Atomic Learning is offering a free online workshop, “Accessibility: It IS Important,” through Dec. 15, 2013.

The training was developed with these goals for educators:

  • Understand the requirements to provide accessible materials and assistive technology under IDEA
  • Understand how to meet those requirements as it relates to classroom materials
  • Practice creating documents and forms that are accessible to students using assistive technology
  • Build awareness of the barriers assistive technology can help students overcome

Atomic Learning is encouraging all educators to take a pledge to create accessible instruction. Those who submit the pledge will receive access to the free training in a series of follow up emails. The pledge can be found here: http://www.atomiclearning.com/k12/pledge
