Contemporary educational media producers aim to create equitable products that are accessible to audiences with disabilities. Using academic frameworks, such as Universal Design for Learning (Center for Applied Special Technology, 2012) and other research based best practices as well as practical examples from industry, producers are broadening product and program design, production, and outreach/distribution. Producers from PBS Kids, Schell Games, and Twin Cities PBS will share their teams’ processes and perspectives for making media projects more accessible to children and adults with disabilities.

Learn effective, practical, and innovative approaches for expanding audiences with equitable tech-centered engagement.
