Accessibility and Inclusive Education
Educators today are faced with the challenge of integrating technology into the classroom and teaching students of all learning styles and abilities, including those with accessibility needs. By providing accessible technology in the classroom, students with a wide-range of learning styles are given equal education opportunities. Find out how seven Canadian teachers have successfully incorporated personalized learning in the classroom at: http://aka.ms/7educators. Microsoft is dedicated to building accessibility into its products and to providing accessibility resources for educators, fostering learning for all. To encourage tech familiarity and adoption, Microsoft has launched a series of free Accessibility Workshops for educators across the country.
