Background {Start after Ice Breaker}: Standards are not just for students but people of all ages including the aging baby boomers to the elderly. Through two federal legislation acts, the Section 508, as an extension of the American with Disabilities Act (ADA), and No Child Left Behind (NCLB), technology is supposed to be accessible to all. Although Section 508 covers accessibility for people with disabilities, it really encompasses more as people age they are more prone to require some type of adaptive assistive technology. For example, the older you get the more than likely you will need larger text and larger buttons on the computer screens. Many elderly complain now that they don’t like to use cell phones because the buttons are too small. The Section 508 and No Child Left Behind may have been the beginning of the awareness that students with disabilities also have the right to use and have access to technology in the classroom, but there are many other standards that have been incorporated into the use of technology. Many schools, especially in high schools, are requiring that students, in general, learn some technology skills before graduating. For example, the Michigan Merit Curriculum requires students entering 8th grade in 2006, to obtain a minimum of 16 credits for graduation, which could be met using alternative instructional delivery methods such as alternative course work, humanities course sequences, career and technology courses, industrial technology or vocational education courses, or through a combination of these programs (Michigan, 2006). More specifically, students wanting a career in technology related field are encourage to take several computer classes that not only cover basic computer skills and learning word processing but also a web design track that gives them some skills that they can use after graduating.
