UDL: Meeting the Needs of Students using Assistive Technologies

Are you looking for ways to help meet the diverse needs of the learners in your classroom? Join us as we talk with Stacy Turke, occupational therapist at Ingham ISD; Phil Booth, assistive technology consultant at Ingham ISD; Holly Engemann, second grade teacher at Queen’s School in Jackson, Michigan; and Keith Tramper, instructional technologist at KRESA. Through the lens of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), the speakers will highlight ways they use technology in their settings to ensure that all of their students are actively engaged and learning. These educators work with young learners ranging from students with IEPs, including students with autism, to exceptionally high achieving students. If you are looking for new or more efficient ways to help your learners gather and categorize facts, organize and express ideas, or stimulate interest and motivation for learning, then this is a can’t miss opportunity for you. Join us for the live webinar on Wednesday, July 20th at 7:30pm. #MAETBridge

Our Hosts: Becky Whitaker, Rosie Mousigian, Stacy Blemaster, Susan Smydra (MAET students at Michigan State University)

The conversation will run live on Wednesday, July 20th from 7:30 to 8:30pm Eastern at http://bridge.educ.msu.edu
