Rachel and Don also demonstrated several methods of making instruction more accessible for all learners using mobile devices.   Particularly popular was their presentation of preexisting accessibility features like speak selection on the iPad and other iOS devices.

The TN AIM Center wants to thank the great audience in Nashville.  We appreciate the great questions and passion they had for our topic.    We hope grow our services to address the needs of educator in TN by presenting a variety of resources, tips, and tools to support the decision making process of educators in TN.

We also want to thank the State Department of Education, Steve Sparks, and our presentation facilitator Martha Murray.   We hope to keep working with educators in Tennessee to make the curriculum accessible to all students!
