Sharing The Load: Toward A New Accessibility App Vetting Rubric

Monday, 28 June — 1:00–1:45 p.m. ET

Vetting edtech solutions for accessibility is time-consuming and resource-draining. The 1EdTech community has undertaken the development of a rubric to alleviate some of that effort. This session will discuss the initiative and its goals, and review the emerging draft rubric with the intent of soliciting feedback and input.
