Description

How classroom devices can foster social and academic growth

Teachers face many challenges in the classroom every day. For special education teachers, these challenges can be compounded by significant behavior management issues, the need to differentiate instruction across a large caseload of students, and the pressure to advocate for student placement in inclusive settings.

Watch this previously recorded webinar as we explore how tablets and educational apps are being used to help special education teachers overcome these challenges and foster social and academic growth.

During this recorded session, we will share:

  • How integrating tablets can empower students with special needs, promote inclusion, and mitigate behavior management challenges
  • Methods of utilizing devices to differentiate learning and support progress toward students’ IEP goals
  • A list of the top apps available for special education that students can begin using today
