This event will be rescheduled for a later date (TBA)
Come for the day to take a deep dive and learn about assistive technology
tools that can help students read text easier on a computer screen, talk to
type, record voice notes and more. We will explore several frameworks to
help educators decide what technologies to use with students.
[SETT(Student, Environments, Tasks & Tools) or
WATI (Wisconsin Assistive Technology Initiative) to name a couple]
The foundation of this course will be based on the book "The New
Assistive Tech: Make Learning Awesome for All!" by Christopher R. Bugaj
The technology focus will be on Google Suite add-ons and extensions. A
small portion of time will be spent on specific Chromebook accessibility
features. If you have access to a Chromebook please bring it with you.
Classes are free for districts with PD contracts. Contact your tech
coordinator or treasurer if you are unsure whether your district has a
contract. The fee for this Bootcamp is $100 for 6 hours of training. Time
earned can be applied toward CEU's or graduate credit through Ashland
University upon completing 15 seat hours. The AU fee is $200 for all
participants pursuing graduate credit.
