Accessibility Pledge for K-12 Computer Science Education

Elizabeth Lee, AccessComputing Staff

The CSforALL Consortium, an organization committed to bringing computer science (CS) education to all K-12 students, has recently worked to highlight accessibility of K-12 CS education. AccessCSforAll partnered with the CSforALL Consortium on a 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 this 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, as well as several of our collaborators were featured. Find recordings online of the following:

AccessCSforAll is a collaboration between the Allen School of Computer Science and Engineering, DO-IT, and the University of Nevada Las Vegas.
