Sat Feb 20 1700 UTC – Billy Krakower on Classroom 2.0 – Technology for students with learning disabilities
|We are thrilled to have Billy Krakower joining us in this webinar to share some great tips on ways to harness the power of technology to improve learning and engagement for students who have learning disabilities. This is the focus of his new book ”Using Technology to Engage Students with Learning Disabilities” which he co-authored with Sharon Plante(@iplante). The format of this webinar will be a little different. Instead of a presentation it will be conducted as an interview with Paula Naugle facilitating the session. We are excited to learn about teaching tools and strategies they recommend for students with learning disabilities, including gifted students. We’ll be asking about using assistive technology to teach core subjects and study skills, recommendations for tools that provide better content accessibility and ways to help student connect and share through tech tools among many other things. This will be a perfect opportunity for you to join us to ask your questions about working with students who have learning disabilities. The Livebinder will have tons of excellent resources!
