Building a Foundation for Inclusive Technology Systems
Explore the conceptual building blocks needed to begin building and sustaining inclusive technology ecosystems through this video series. And remember, the future is inclusive.
The What & Why of Inclusive Technology
In this first video, you will explore and connect the “what” and “why” of inclusive technologies in your context. Whether working in a virtual learning program or offering an array of learning experiences, education leaders will understand why designing learning experiences using inclusive technologies is important, including the impact of implementation on learners with disabilities and their families.

Cultivating a Culture of Inclusive Practices
In the second video, you will be reminded of antiquated mindsets and exclusive cultural practices that have created barriers to learning for children and youth with disabilities. By the end of the video, you will have a handful of activities to implement immediately to begin to cultivate a culture of inclusive practices in your district.

The CITES Framework
The third video provides district leaders a way to build an ecosystem of inclusive technology by exploring the CITES framework. The CITES Framework provides the “what” and the “how” of building inclusive technology ecosystems through a series of evidence-based practices. By the end of this video, you’ll have a map to begin your journey toward building an inclusive technology system.

Inclusive Technologies in Multi-Tiered Systems of Support
Finally, the fourth video investigates how the CITES Framework practices align with and support the implementation of multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS). From the procurement of instructional materials to designing the universal level of instruction, inclusive technology practices support each area of MTSS. By the end of this video, you’ll have reflected on how to build considerations for inclusive technology into your MTSS.
