Accessible Computing Education: From Multiple Perspectives
Speaker: Earl Huff (Clemson University)
Date: Feb 17, 2021
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.
