D’Arcy’s Make It Accessible
Task: An essential component of being a responsible and compassionate “digital citizen” (and educator) is making sure that your works are accessible to an audience whose abilities fall across the spectrum. For this assignment, go out of your way to make your materials more universally accessible.
Not-so-secret objective(s): To encourage you to think about accessibility and improve your skills for making materials more accessible.

I added a transcript of my audio Think About Thinking – Rich Reflections.
