Increasing Accessibility and Fostering Inclusive Classrooms

At Microsoft, our Mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. With more than 1 billion people in the world with disabilities, there is no limit to what people can achieve when technology reflects the diversity of all those who use it. Hector Minto, Senior Technology Evangelist at Microsoft and Mike Tholfsen, Principal Product Manager at Microsoft are dedicated to ensuring that we as educators are empowered with the tools to ensure we have inclusivity within our classrooms. Following their presentations on fostering inclusivity and accessibility in the classroom they have made available for us some excellent resources to support us on our own journeys to empowering our own students to achieve more.
