Two months after the COVID-19 crisis forced educators across the United States to leave their classrooms and start teaching online, the scope of the changes and challenges have now become clear, and educational leaders have started to identify what’s working and what still needs improvement. During a recent edLeader Panel the superintendent of one of America’s largest school districts spoke with a former state superintendent and other education leaders about key issues affecting students, parents, and educators, including digital access and equity, online privacy, and funding.
This edLeader Panel focuses on increasing awareness about the exposure and possible dangers districts have in remote learning environments.
Every two or three years, state and federal laws regarding accessibility in education change. However, the goal is always the same: making sure that every student, at every level (classroom, building, district), has access to the resources they need to meet their learning goals. During ClassLink and CoSN’s edWebinar, “Accessibility for All: Creating an Equitable Learning Ecosystem,” the presenters discussed the lessons they’ve learned, especially regarding technology as an instrument for accessibility.
During this edWebinar, we will draw directly from high-stakes assessment questions to discuss methods for engaging students from across cultural and socio-economic backgrounds while accelerating assessment outcomes.
The AEM Center will provide resources and guidance during this edWebinar, and will be available for free technical assistance as educators navigate eLearning Days now and in the weeks ahead.
In this edWebinar, three superintendents share how they are leading the complex issues involved in ensuring accessibility for all.
This edWebinar will provide an overview of the guiding principles of UDL and highlight a wealth of resources to help teachers recognize ways that instruction, materials, and environments can be optimized for all learners.
Individuals with special needs struggle to graduate from high school and earn a diploma, much less pursue higher education or gain meaningful employment. Sometimes, there is a skills gap between the desired career and the student’s training. Many times, though, the problem is also a communication gap. During the edWebinar “Digital Badge Credentials: Preparing Students with Special Needs for Employment,” the presenters discussed how and why digital badges can help students validate their training and verify their credentials with prospective employers.
This edWebinar will explore how teachers are using Digital Badge Credentials to increase opportunities for all students, including those with autism and other special needs.
In this edWebinar learn how to provide a more accessible and equitable learning environment and experience for all learners.
