The CSforAll Consortium, an organization committed to bringing computer science (CS) education to all K-12 students, highlights accessibility in K-12 CS education. AccessCSforAll partnered with the Consortium on the CSforAll Accessibility Pledge, which will rally the national community of CS education content creators, program providers, educational institutions, researchers, and investors to take immediate steps to achieve accessibility for existing efforts and ensure that future efforts address accessibility within the design phase. Over one hundred organizations have signed the pledge so far.

To learn more and read the pledge, visit the CSforAll website.

In October, the pledge and related accessibility efforts were highlighted as part of the CSforALL Summit. AccessCSforAll PIs Richard Ladner and Andreas Stefik, and several of our collaborators were featured. Find recordings online of the following

AccessCSforAll is a collaboration between teams at the University of Washington and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in partnership with many of the current and future National Science Foundation computing education grantees, K-12 computing educators, and developers of accessible tools and curricula.
