Cooperative agreements to USA and Territories IHEs, nonprofits, LEAs, Tribes, SEAs, and for-profits for programs to improve the classroom learning experience of children with disabilities. Funding is intended for technology, teacher training, and the development and implementation of new activities and technologies.

The purposes of the Educational Technology, Media, and Materials for Individuals with Disabilities Program are to (1) improve results for children with disabilities by promoting the development, demonstration, and use of technology; (2) support educational activities designed to be of educational value in the classroom for children with disabilities; (3) provide support for captioning and video description that is appropriate for use in the classroom; and (4) provide accessible educational materials to children with disabilities in a timely manner.

For FY 2020 and any subsequent year in which awards are made from the list of unfunded applications from this competition, these priorities are absolute priorities. Applicants may apply under both absolute priorities but must submit separate applications.

  • Absolute Priority 1—Providing Technology-Based Professional Development to Trainers of Special Education Teachers to Support Children With Disabilities.
  • Absolute Priority 2—Improving Social Skill Development for Students with Disabilities Through the Use of Socially Assistive Robotics (SAR).

To be considered for funding under this priority, applicants, at a minimum, must

(a) Build partnerships with LEAs, at least one of which is in a rural location and that includes public and nonpublic schools, to support teacher in-service trainers in the understanding, use, and delivery of a technology-based tool or approach that will support teacher in-service training for instruction of children with disabilities in PK-12 instructional settings, including classrooms and remote learning environments;

(b) Increase the capacity of teacher in-service trainers to effectively use and implement a technology-based tool or approach that supports teacher classroom and remote learning environment instruction and professional growth;

(c) Develop an implementation package of products and resources that will help teacher in-service trainers to use a technology-based tool or approach; and

(d) Evaluate the effectiveness of the in-service training conducted using the technology-based tool or approach.
