Increasing Participation for Students with Learning Disabilities with Free and Affordable Classroom Technologies

January 26, 2017
9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
NYC Charter School Center - Training Room
111 Broadway, Suite 604, New York, NY 10006

Presented by Mark Surabian

Innovative educators have literally hundreds of Instructional (IT) and Assistive Technologies (AT) available to them for addressing the many obstacles that may inhibit active participation for their students with learning and accessibility challenges. Students who have dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, ADHD, and other learning challenges (which confound their participation and the independent completion of classroom and homework assignments) may benefit from various technologies which empower them to become and remain active learners. Even though these students receive remedial and therapeutic supports to develop their learning skills, educators are still faced with the challenge of keeping them actively participating because of gaps and obstacles that keep them from being more independent and accountable for their work. The primary goal of assistive technology is to offer support to the student so they can demonstrate their current abilities while not being inhibited by their disabilities, thereby allowing them to take ownership of their learning tasks.

 

This half day workshop will present attendees with information and demonstrations of the most effective technologies available for enhancing student participation in reading, writing, note-taking, math, and organizational tasks. Attendees may bring their own computers or tablets to augment their participation even more.

 

Suggested Audience: General Education Teachers, Special Education Teachers, Deans/Coaches,S chool Leaders, Related Service Providers.
