Using the book “The New Assistive Technology: Make Learning Awesome for All” by Christopher Bugaj, we will lead a discussion on how AT intersects with UDL to benefit all students across the continuum. Join us for this 4-part book study and learn about the latest trends in assistive technology, lesson design and inclusion strategies to provide a classroom environment where every student can succeed!
1. How to apply the concepts of Universal Design for Learning and differentiation to support all learners in a technology-centered classroom.
2. How to effectively consider and select assistive technology solutions for unique learners.
3. How to support IEP teams in accommodating or modifying lessons to include unique assistive technology considerations and integrate universally designed technology into the classroom
