Using Technology to Meet the Needs of Students with Learning Disabilities in the Classroom

Wed, 4/19: 2:15 – 3:15
Hynes
Room: 309

It is vital that teachers understand the variety of assistive technology that is available and easy to employ within their classrooms. Assistive technology avails students with dyslexia and other learning disabilities to save time and overcome some of their weaknesses in both the general and special education setting. Technology for supporting reading, learning, note taking, spelling and writing, which have been used successfully in the classroom setting, will be shared.

 

Apps and AT Across the Curriculum: Engaging and Including Diverse Learners in a UDL Environment

Thu, 4/20: 9:45 AM – 10:45 AM
Hynes
Room: 302

Many schools are implementing BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) programs and some are Going Google with Chromebooks. How do you support diverse learners on all devices? These free and low-cost AT solutions support personalizing education for students, as well as engaging and including all students in a UDL environment.

Universal Design for Learning Through the Lens of Cognitive Flexibility Theory: Implications for Teacher Professional Development

Thurs, 4/20: 1:00 – 2:00
Hynes
Room: 300

Despite its prominence, UDL has yet to reach its potential. We contend that the lack of a theoretical framework for applying UDL principles contextually has constrained its impact. We examine UDL through the lens of cognitive flexibility theory and present a model for preparing teachers to better implement UDL principles.
