An IHCD project to create an Inclusive Media for Teens open Badge program this summer submitted to the Digital Media + Learning Competition

Jun 13, 2013

The Digital Media and Learning Competition is sponsored by the MacArthur Foundation, Facebook, Mozilla, the Family On-Safety Initiative, HASTEC and the Born This Way Foundation.

We created a Summer program at the Institute for Human Centered Design to develop with a team of 15-23 year olds with disabilities a new guide to digital accessibility tailored for youth. In an intensive program of deep immersion in the details of designing digital environments that work for everyone, IHCD will develop a new Mozilla Badge that will be earned by the IHCD summer youth team and then shared widely to use the Mozilla open badges to get young developers and editors interested in web accessibility.
