World Usability Day 2017

The Inclusive Learning Network celebrated  World Usability Day On Thursday, November 9th with a panel of ILN members who came together to discuss the impact of usability and accessibility on all aspects of their lives – from accessing information for learning to daily living and meaningful employment.

 

Inclusion: different colored figures arranged in a circle, with ones in wheelchairs inside the circle.

Recordings of each presented will be posted here as they are processed.

Kendra Grant shared how she is using Trello, Inpiration and WordQ/ThoughtQ to help her maintain focus and help with writing and organization (executive functioning).

Other Resources:  Tomato Timer, Pomodoro Technique
