An Addendum to
An Educator's Guide To Access Issues
Kim Baker, Amy Craddock, Ann Orwig
Access to technology should be equally available for all students. However, research shows that there are several gaps in accessibility for students. While many efforts have been made in the past 3 years to increase computer access for all students, many complex issues remain surrounding equal technology access. These papers serve to address many of these issues.
In 1999 a set of white papers were developed by graduate students at the University of Illinois. As part of these papers, An Educator's Guide to Access Issues was created. Similarly, these access papers were developed by graduate students with the purpose of updating and explaining recent research regarding accessibility. The papers do not serve to dispute the original data. Rather, they explore new research regarding 6 key areas of technology access.
