Instructor: Mallack Walsh 3 Graduate Credits
Colorado State Course #501
One of the most meaningful ways we can leverage instructional technology is to use it to help special needs learners reach their goals. In this course, taught by a Google for Education Certified Trainer, teachers will explore and analyze a multitude of educational technology tools that can assist and support special needs learners.
These tools can be used by anyone, not just special needs learners. Participants will examine Chrome Browser accessibility features and Chrome Browser Extensions that bring extra functionality to the web for people with disabilities such as visual impairment, hearing loss, and limited dexterity.
Other tools that will be investigated have the ability to assist students with reading and writing, help with behavior and classroom management, and help students on the autism spectrum. Participants will create lesson plans using these tools and share them with peers via discussion boards.
Participants meet virtually via online communities to discuss and share lessons and strategies.
This is a hybrid course with both face-to-face instruction, as well as online classwork.
This course has previously been approved for METHODOLOGY.
