New AccessComputing Resources (AccessComputing News - January 2014)

Brianna Blaser, AccessComputing Staff

AccessComputing has just launched a redesigned website with a new look and feel as well as new navigation, search capability, content, and features.

The new Choose Computing

(www.uw.edu/accesscomputing/get-informed/why-choose-computing) area encourages high school students with disabilities to pursue computing and IT careers. There you’ll find profiles of successful computing students and professionals who happen to have disabilities, resources to learn more about careers in computing, and examples of computing projects. 

With the new website, we’ve also launched our AccessComputing Replication Packages (www.uw.edu/accesscomputing/get-involved/educators-employers/replication-packages). These packages provide everything that educators or professionals need to replicate activities that have been successful at working towards AccessComputing’s goals of increasing the participation of individuals with disabilities. In addition, there is new improved searching capability in the Knowledge Base

(www.uw.edu/accesscomputing/search-accesscomputing-knowledge-base).

Check it all out at www.uw.edu/accesscomputing.
