Anyone interested in the use of games in education is invited to attend a free educational gaming brown bag entitled “Can Games and Accessibility Play on the Same Team?” on Wednesday, October 22 from noon to 1:00 p.m. in 202K Rider Building, University Park or via a Meeting@PennState desktop videoconference.
Accessibility guru Elizabeth Pyatt will discuss common and not-so-common strategies for providing accessibility within a gaming environment. The good news for educational gamers is that most gaming objectives are the kind that can incorporate simpler accommodation strategies.
Participants can learn about the needs of multiple audiences requiring accommodations, view examples of common accommodations, discuss how the learning objective affects the accessibility strategy, and learn how HTML5 can enable some accommodations.
