Session Dates

Wednesday March 01, 2023 2:45 PM - 3:45 PM - Webinar

Are you committed to seeing your students succeed, including those with disabilities? This session will explore technology supports that can be used universally to accelerate student learning. We will discuss using technology as a layered continuum of support via inclusive pedagogical frameworks, such as Universal Design for Learning (UDL). We will also explore universal technology supports in a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) framework, including universal, targeted, and individualized technology for all students. There will be an explanation of the continuum of universal technology supports to assistive technology (AT) for students who receive special education services. Participants will explore proposed models emphasizing strategies for making technology implementation decisions. There will be interactive discussions to help participants discuss and clarify the technology used in MTSS, UDL, and as AT.
