INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES

Today, 3 December 2020, is designated by the United Nations as International Day of People With Disabilities. 

Today, on International Day of People with Disabilities Marino Institute of Education would like to highlight how the application of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) can make a positive difference for all of us here in MIE. 

As you will hear in our video small changes can make big difference.

In the short video below Shane Regan Instructional Designer, MIE explores how you can get more out of Google Chrome and use it to actively aid learners. The video showcases Colour Checker, a tool that gauges how accessible your online learning materials are for students with visual disabilities. The video also explores the Google Chrome plugin Cite This For Me, a handy citation tool that you can promote with learners who struggle with essay writing/ citation skills.

You can access the video by clicking here.

Note: every plugin covered in this tutorial is free! However, you will need access to the Google Chrome web browser to use these plugins.

On this year’s International Day of People with Disabilities, please look out for the following hashtags on social media and use the day to think about how you can make your work more accessible to students and colleagues you interact with.
