4.1. Badge #1 Accessibility 101

4.1.1. Description:Students will earn their first badge when they complete Accessibility 101. Accessibility 101 will help students understand the concept of accessibility, different types of users, assistive technologies and standards and guidelines, such as the WCAG 2.0 AA guidelines.

4.2. Badge #2 Disability Recognition

4.2.1. Description:Disabilities can encompass many different forms therefore everyone’s experience with it is different.

4.3. Badge #3 Challenges/Barriers/Evaluation

4.3.1. Description:The advent of the technological age has allowed the basic aspects of daily life to become integrated with technology. However, not all technological tools are built the same and what works for one individual may not work for another. This causes users to experience a wide variety of accessibility challenges and barriers. While there are many factors to consider when thinking about accessible technology, bad experiences often result from design practices that fail to account for differing means of perception, operation, and understanding. Students will recognize potential barriers to accessibility in various technologies.

4.4. Badge #4 Implementing ADDIE/Assistive Technology

4.4.1. Description:Now that we have identified the challenges and barriers no accessible sites and tools, we now need to address how instructors can build designs that are based on best practices for accessibility. As an instructional designer one of the earliest design principles you learned about was the ADDIE model. How can the ADDIE model help with Accessibility design? ADDIE comes into play when implementing new technologies to help those with disabilities. ADDIE can be used to implement new technologies such as Assistive Technology. Individuals with disabilities often employ alternative technologies and tools that can assist them in completing everyday tasks. These tools, collectively known as "assistive technology" or "A.T." provide ways for users to experience and interact with websites, documents, forms, and other technologies.

4.5. Badge #5 Universal Design

4.5.1. Description:Besides the use of ADDIE and Assistive Technologies, there is another framework that can be incorporated to make sure our websites and the tools that we are implementing are accessible to everyone. The Universal Design concept ensures that the techniques and tools are created, optimized and accessible to meet all learning styles or needs and different abilities because all students learn differently; not one size fits all.

4.6. Badge #6 Design Phase 1: Word Accessible Document Creation

4.6.1. Description: At this point we are now aware of the components needed to create an accessible website, tool or course site. For Phase 1, students will need to design a word document that incorporates the elements of accessible design.

4.7. Badge #7 Design Phase 2: PDF Accessible Document Creation

4.7.1. Description:At this point we are now aware of the components needed to create an accessible website, tool or course site. For Phase 2, students will need to design a PDF document that incorporates the elements of accessible design.

4.8. Badge #8 Design Phase 3: Accessible Image Creation

4.8.1. Description: At this point we are now aware of the components needed to create an accessible website, tool or course site. For Phase 3, students will need to design a document with photos that use the Alt Text function that incorporates the elements of accessible design.

4.9. Badge #9 Final Project: Inclusive Project Creation

4.9.1. Description:Digital citizenship is a powerful enabler of inclusion in social, cultural and civil society. The final portion of the Badge program will offer students a choice in terms of the final project. Students can build a completely accessible website that incorporates all of the components of ADDIE, A.T. (Assistive Technology) and Universal Design. The website can be created on any platform the student chooses (Google Sites, Wordpress, etc). Or Students can produce a text of their choice (poster, film, concept map, presentation etc) that promotes and respects the values of Digital Citizenship.

4.10. Badge # 10 Digital Citizenship Badge
