CFDA No. 84.327S

Application Deadline: July 5, 2012

The purposes of the Technology and Media Services for Individuals with Disabilities program are to: (1) Improve results for students with disabilities by promoting the development, demonstration, and use of technology; (2) support educational media services activities designed to be of educational value in the classroom for students with disabilities; and (3) provide support for captioning and video description that is appropriate for use in the classroom.

Examples of such tools include: Web- based learning and assessment materials, instructional software, assistive technology devices, methods for using off-the-shelf hardware and software to improve learning, and methods for integrating technology into instruction. In addition, the Department’s Institute of Education Sciences (IES) now supports projects to develop and evaluate innovative technology tools. The Stepping-up Technology Implementation program will build on these technology development efforts by identifying, developing, and disseminating products and resources that promote the effective implementation of evidence-based instructional and assistive technology tools in kindergarten through grade 12 (K–12) settings.
