As part of their mission, they have created an online self-assessment tool that allows one to obtain immediate feedback for school district analysis in six areas - Vision, Communication and Collaboration, Infrastructure, Funding, Professional Development, and Instruction and Assessment. These areas are believed to be critical to ensuring that students have access to technologies that support engagement with the curriculum and promote learning. The survey takes less than ten minutes to complete and provides instantaneous analysis, comparison to other school districts that have completed the survey and resource information. It is possible to quickly determine where your district strengths and weaknesses are.
The goal of this initiative is increased achievement and success for all students through the unlimited and effective use of accessible technologies.
It is our core belief that accessible technologies and the close collaboration of assistive technology (AT) and instructional technology (IT) services at the school district level will enhance and facilitate learning for all students – those with disabilities and those without disabilities.
Gather your tech team and your administrators and complete the online survey. Analyze the results and explore the resources for best practices. Move your district forward through collaboration and evaluation. There is so much that can be done and this tool will help you identify the areas that require district energy and resources to improve learning opportunities for ALL learners.
