Built for All: Inclusive Design for the Classroom

This on-demand series consists of five one-hour challenges to increase access for ALL students in the classroom. By the end of the series, educators will have the knowledge and tools needed to ensure their materials and classroom experiences are designed for equity and inclusion. Inclusive design concepts are used everywhere in the world to ensure products and services are truly accessible for all. Why should the classroom be any different? By creating materials and planning lessons, teachers are already acting as designers. "Built for All" empowers educators to make guided, informed decisions when crafting learning experiences. This knowledge not only saves preparation time, but increases classroom results by actively removing learning barriers for students.

Lauren Heil

Lauren’s career actually started in the graphic design and art direction arena. When she found herself craving a more fulfilling path, she started exploring the world of education and fell in love. As it turns out, great design and great teaching go hand in hand! This became her mission in her classroom as a Google Innovator, and it quickly grew to her district and other schools within the US when we all quickly shifted to distance learning. She is such an asset to the friEdOnline team as a Learning Experience Designer creating useful, engaging asynchronous learning opportunities. Lauren lives with her husband, daughter and her sweet dog in beautiful Colorado!
Lauren is a Google Level 1 & Level 2 Certified Educator, Google Certified Innovator, and a Google Certified Trainer.
