At In The Classroom: Empowering Teacher’s Support Staff *

Presented by SPG’s AT Specialists (3 hrs)

As more technology becomes available to schools it is essential that classroom teams are aware of how these tools can support daily classroom academics and activities. An often overlooked asset for embedding these tools in a student’s daily activities are the support staff in the room. This presentation is intended for support staff that wish to provide effective and meaningful tools and supports for the students they work with. Participants will be introduced to a variety of practical low and high tech assistive technology supports that can quickly be implemented in the classroom. All levels of comfort with technology are encouraged to join, there is something for everyone to take away! Demonstrations, hands-on activities and real classroom examples will be included for a fun and engaging professional development. All levels of student abilities will be represented, from low to high support needs, low tech to high tech.
