Steve Noble, Accessibility Research Consultant (Guest Author)
Next week I'll be presenting a webinar hosted by EASI--Equal Access to Software and Information. I'll be discussing the results of two research studies where middle-school students with learning disabilities used eText containing MathML with assistive technology. Using MathML, students were able to use the same assistive technology in math class as they did for all their other subjects. Furthermore, these studies indicated improved academic performance in mathematics for students using digital instructional materials created with MathML.
The webinar will be held on Tuesday June 17 at 11:00am Pacific time (2:00pm Eastern). To register for this free webinar, go to http://easi.cc/clinic.htm#june and click on the link for the June 17 webinar.
For some helpful suggestions on how to get accessible math materials for use by students at your school, please see What can you do to help promote math accessibility?
