Webinar: The Power of Social Networking for People with Disabilities
This Wednesday, January 13th, the ADA will host a webinar from 2:00 to 3:00 pm.
The focus will be on the explosion of the use of social media websites (like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn), which can be powerful tools for people with disabilities who may not have had the opportunity to connect so freely through more traditional or in-person means. The webinar will examine what social networking is all about and how it can be leveraged successfully to enhance communication and to break down barriers to full participation by everyone in the digital age.
The speaker will be Mike Paciello, founder and president of The Paciello Group, LLC, a software accessibility consultancy. For more than 25 years, Mr. Paciello has served as an international leader, technologist and lecturer in the areas of emerging technology, usability, technical & legal standards, and accessibility.
CPPS will be hosting the webinar in the Collaborative Work Lab (IIDC Building L). Alternatively, you may participate in the webinar on your own. There is no cost, but you must register at http://www.ada-audio.org/Webinar/AccessibleTechnology/.
