#OhMyGAAD - Are You Ready for Global #Accessibility Awareness Day? May 16, 2019
Innovative educators can prepare for Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) which takes place on Thursday, May 16th. GADD was launched in 2012 to get everyone talking, thinking and learning about digital (web, software, mobile, etc.) access/inclusion and people with different abilities. This is particularly important for educators because they understand the importance of creating inclusive content for students and families. They also understand that to prepare today's students for modern careers, they too must understand how to create accessible content from basic documents and presentations to their day-to-day interactions on social media.
Recognized on the third Thursday in May each year, this global event inspires a growing list of in-person and virtual events each year.
