Microsoft accessibility tools for inclusive classroom and students learning experience

Are you interested in learning about Microsoft accessibility tools to create an inclusive classroom and learning experience for your students?

The Inclusive Classroom is a series of webinars that will aim to improve your knowledge of Microsoft accessibility features and embed use of these in your inclusive teaching practice. The sessions will be delivered by Troy Waller, learning delivery specialist and accessibility lead for Microsoft Australia Education. The diversity of learning needs of students requires schools, VET and Universities to provide inclusive, accessible learning environments that inspire confidence and encourage independence differently for each student. In session 1, you will learn about the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework, Microsoft’s vision for the Inclusive Classroom, and how technology helps personalise learning. You will also be introduced to the Ease of Access centre on Windows 10 devices.
