Are you struggling to connect the dots between education frameworks, such as Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and Multi-tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) and your role in embedding technology? How can technology support students with disabilities along a continuum of tiered intervention? Join educators throughout Washington state and nationally to discuss how technology can be woven through these frameworks to support inclusive learning. Participants will gain resources and ideas to share within their districts to help build an understanding of how inclusive technology and assistive technology are integrated into MTSS.
- Compare and contrast how technology supports students as part of UDL, MTSS, and Inclusive Practices in education.
- Discuss how technology can support a student with disabilities as a universal support in general education and as a special education service.
- Identify at least one resource from this session that increased your knowledge about how technology can be embedded as an inclusionary practice within your district.
