Round 2 of Microsoft’s Imagine Cup Touch & Tablet Accessibility Award begins today.
Students are competiting to create a new education application that uses Touch & Tablet technology in accessibility scenarios to expand the possibilities about how a user (student or educator) interacts with the computer. Round 1 began in January and now ten teams advanced to Round 2, where those teams will finalize storyboards and build functional prototypes of their software applications. Of these ten teams, the top two will be invited to compete in the final round, which will be in Warsaw, Poland in July.
Congratulations to Round 1 participants for your unique approaches to improving accessibility issues in education. Now, it will be exciting to see how the top 10 progress! Good luck!
