The Center on Inclusive Technology & Education Systems (CITES) is teaming up with school districts across the country to find out what works in creating and sustaining balanced, inclusive technology ecosystems. When assistive technology and educational technology work well together, all students benefit.
Our goal: to produce the CITES Framework with promising and evidence-based practices. What we learn through the development process will be scaled nationally to inform technical assistance products and services for school district personnel and families.
“All of the components for achieving synergy between special education and general education technology are available to us today,” says Cynthia Curry, CITES Co-Director. “The role of CITES is to partner with districts to ‘kick the tires’ on a range of high-leverage practices that contribute to systemic change.”
