Accessible Computing Education: From Multiple Perspectives

Who: Earl Huff

When: Wednesday, February 17 at 10 am Pacific/1 pm Eastern

Where: Join via Zoom

As current efforts work to increase the integration of computing education in K-12 schools, we must ask if the curriculum and tools provided meet ALL students' needs. To ensure an inclusive computing education, we must examine the suitability and learning experience of existing curricula if they accommodate students with disabilities, especially those blind or who have low vision. This webinar provides an account of the learning and teaching experience in computing education for persons with visual impairments from different perspectives: blind or visually impaired programmers, teachers of blind or visually impaired students, and blind or visually impaired students. A summary of all accounts is provided and potential solutions for improving accessibility in K-12 computing education.
