Mighty Guides interviewed 20 educational leaders to learn more about how institutions tap technology to improve education and make it available for all students, including those with differing abilities. In this new eBook, these 20 leaders offer their perspectives on challenges, successes, and lessons learned covering the following main categories:

  • Online Learning
    • "Learning spaces can be physical, face-to-face, real-time online, group, or asynchronous. It turns into a melange of students being able to choose the kind of learning style that works for them in any single class" -- Dave Bolman, Provost, University of Advancing Technology
  • Student Engagement
    • "When students can use technology to explore, design, and create, that's where the magic happens." -- Thomas Murray, Director of Innovation, Future Ready Schools/Alliance for Excellent Education
  • Assistive Technology
    • "We essentially make sure that students with disabilities here at George Mason University have equivalent access to all the technology resources used at the school." -- Korey Singleton, Assistive Technology Initiative Manager, George Mason University
  • Instructional Design
    • "Good instructional design doesn't only help those who have disabilities, but is also a win-win situation for the instructor." -- Devrim Ozdemir, Instruction Design Coordinator, Des Moines University
