Keynote - Accessing Abilities

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Finding solutions for students with diverse learning needs it extremely important. It
is more than accessibility, it is accessing abilities. It requires providing the
appropriate tools and educational technologies that make the curriculum
accessible to all learners. It is about finding the tools and solutions that provide
students with the opportunities to access their education, their world and their
dreams. Today’s technologies are opening up a world of opportunities for students
with diverse learning needs. Technologies are at the forefront of providing the tools
that are truly making a difference in the lives of persons we work with. Desktops,
laptops and iPads can provide opportunities for the students we work with. The
iPad has been one of these amazing tools especially with students on the Autism
spectrum. In this presentation we will show how many of today’s technologies can
empower students with diverse learning needs. Participants will see real world
examples on how technology can break down barriers and provide opportunities.
We will discuss universal design, (UDL) universal design for learning, and
differentiated instruction. We also discuss meaningful approaches to selecting
appropriate solutions to meet the unique learning needs of all students.
