Framing the Future of Learning with Technology

What works when bringing together education technology (EdTech), information technology (InfoTech) and assistive technology (AT) for students with disabilities? CITES, the Center on Inclusive Technology & Education Systems, is partnering with school districts from across the country to answer that question. What we learn will inform the development of the CITES Framework of evidence-based practices for creating and sustaining inclusive technology ecosystems in school districts.
