Accessible Tools for
Online Learning

This workshop and Q & A is designed for professional educators working in the arts and cultural sector to provide tools to manage teaching students in virtual/online platforms. Covid-19 changed how educators present content. Without direct access to museum objects, performance venues, or historic homes, many have had to master technology, screen-based teaching, and inclusive lesson plans in our own homes. In this one-hour workshop, Art-Reach will share tools collected from special education teacher, instructional designers, teaching artists, zoom experts, and disability advocates. Additional resources and invitation to participate in monthly zoom meetups will be shared.
