Explore the Quality Indicators for the Provision of Accessible Educational Materials and Technologies (AEM) and self-assess your school’s edtech procurement system. Quality Indicators with Critical Components for the Provision of AEM, developed by the National Center on Accessible Educational Materials, guide K-12 state and local agencies, higher ed institutions, and workforce development programs in planning, implementing, and evaluating dynamic, coordinated systems for the timely provision of AEM. A comprehensive procurement system that includes accessibility can streamline the provision of AEM by addressing multiple factors, including compliance, timely delivery, written guidelines, learning opportunities, data collection, data use, and allocation of resources. Come to this session to reflect, discuss, and take away a self-assessment tool that you can bring back to your school for monitoring continuous progress.
