On June 17, 2015, the National Coalition for Technology in Education and Training (NCTET) and the Education and Technology and Telecommunications Taskforces of the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities hosted Seizing Opportunity in the Digital Age: The Intersection of Technology and Special Education, a special event to discuss the intersection of technology and special education. Moderator Alexa Posny (former Assistant Secretary for the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitation Services) discussed how special education teachers have led the way for technology innovation, and Project Tomorrow CEO Julie Evans provided Speak Up 2014 data, focusing on 4,475 special education teachers’ thoughts on digital learning. Featured educator panelists Kate Nagle (The Ivy Mount School, Rockville, MD), Caroline Hill (E.L. Haynes High School, Washington, D.C.), and Angela Foreman (Jamestown Elementary School, Arlington, VA) gave insight into how their schools and classrooms have used technology to advance special education and benefit students with disabilities.

This event was made possible by NCTET and the Education and Technology and Telecommunications Taskforces of the Consortium for Citizens, with the live stream provided by Discovery Education.
