Framing the Future of Learning with Technology
The goal of the Center on Inclusive Technology & Education Systems (CITES) is to empower school districts to create and sustain inclusive technology systems that serve all students, including students with disabilities who require assistive technology or accessible educational materials. To do this work, we are creating and disseminating a framework of evidence-based practices to enhance the successful use of technology by all students. We provide technical assistance to districts, educators, and families to ensure that students with disabilities are able to use the technology tools they need to foster learning and life success.
Note: The framework development process is ongoing and therefore the content of this site will be continuously updated. For more information on the status of the framework development, visit the Framework Development Process.
Build effective teaching practices that promote inclusive technology and education systems with our new downloadable guide.
Visit the Teaching section of our website to learn how our partner districts optimized systems that support teaching with inclusive technology.
We focus on sharing knowledge and experiences, problem-solving barriers, documenting lessons learned, and celebrating successes. All are welcome!
Technology supports access to learning.
The CITES Framework offers district leaders the opportunity to collaborate so that all learners with disabilities have the supports, scaffolds, and tools to be and feel successful.
