The Educational Leadership Team: A Promising Practice on Promoting Accessible IT

The Educational Leadership Team: A Promising Practice on Promoting Accessible IT

DO-IT Factsheet #1270
/articles?1270

In an effort to determine the best ways to promote the use of accessible information technology (IT) the Southeast Disability and Business Technical Assistance Center [1] formed an Educational Leadership Team (ELT). The ELT is composed of 21 key stakeholders in educational information technology throughout the southeast region of the United States. Each fall members meet in Atlanta, Georgia, to discuss initiatives and to plan new approaches to promoting accessible information technology.

During its initial meeting the ELT identified fourteen key areas where members of the ELT could work together to support the use of accessible information technology in education. These fourteen areas are:

Working together, ELT members provide information, technical assistance, and training about universal design and accessible information technology for people with disabilities. Drawing on the unique strengths of its members throughout eight states, the ELT represents a promising practice for promoting the widespread use of accessible information technology across educational entities.
