Accessibility on Mobile Devices: Accessibility Features in iOS9 and Android-based Devices


Meeting Description:

You have a smartphone, or a tablet, or maybe both – but do you really know just how smart it really is? By law, mobile devices must include support for persons with vision, hearing, learning, physical, and motor disabilities. For example, did you know that you could set your device to read a selection of text to you? Did you know that you could limit student access to just one App? There is a plethora of wonderful (and free!) accessibility features in tablets and mobile devices that are not being used because owners simply don’t know the features exist.

In this webinar, participants will be guided through the accessibility features offered on iOS9 and Android-based devices.  You will learn about the basics of accessibility and easy applications to teaching and learning. You will also be provided with some great resources to assist students in accessing educational content through their tablets and mobile devices.

Dr. Jennifer Courduff is an associate professor at Azusa Pacific University in the School of Education: Teacher Education and is currently the Program Director for Azusa Pacific University's Master of Arts: Digital Teaching and Learning program. In this capacity, she develops and teaches courses, working with pre- and in-service teachers in the process of deep integration of technology into learning activities. Her publications and presentations bring to light the unique technology integration challenges found in diverse learning environments. This theory extends the constructs of TPACK to more clearly define knowledge, skills, dispositions, and belief necessary for authentic technology integration to occur in special education instruction. Her theory has been applied to revision of in-service professional development AT/AAC certificate training in the county of San Bernardino, and in pre-service coursework within the Digital Teaching and Learning Master’s at Azusa Pacific University.
