Leveraging Technology to Differentiate Instruction:
Creating Rich Curricula for ALL Students-Spring 2015
Instructors: Lisa Barry and Chris CichoskiKelly
This project-based course is designed for all educators, grades K-12 regardless of technology skills and content area. Each participant will receive an iPad mini and will be gathering information about using it for instruction with their students. Aspects of Assistive Technology (AT), including assessment, tips on implementation and "What is Out There" will be covered, making this course particularly attractive for special educators, as well as general educators who are interested in exploring how they can differentiate and increase access to their curricula for all students.
*Please note that class attendance is very important and missing class without instructor approval and completion of any required make up work will result in a lower grade for the class. Class attendance the final day of class is mandatory.
