How It Relates to the AODA legislation: 

The Software for Classroom Management section relates to the following sections of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) Integrated Accessibility Regulation


Accessible Formats and Communication Supports
Training on Accessible Course Delivery and Instruction  

AODA Significance: 

1. The Software for Classroom Management section describes how educators might utilize inclusive technologies to teach, communicate and share information.
2.  People interact, learn and communicate in diverse ways. Learning opportunities are increased when flexible ways of engaging with learning materials are provided. Considering how people communicate is important for knowledge to be exchanged. Alternative formats take into account diverse ways of exchanging information.
3. The AODA legislates that educators, teachers and staff are to learn about accessible course delivery and instruction and be knowledgeable at interacting and communicating with people with disabilities who may use alternative formats.
