|Title: Accessibility At The First Bell's Ring!
Description: Summer isn’t quite over; BUT the first day of school is right around the corner. You may have thought about the design of your classroom for positioning and maybe have even made a few trips to IKEA by now. In the midst of organizing all of your paperwork and thinking about lesson planning, you are familiarizing yourself with your student’s IEP. You then realize that you have to meet the needs of ALL of those diverse learners!
Join me to learn about some tools that are quick, easy and CHEAP for transitions and to ensure that your students can access your classroom materials in ways that are accessible for them.
Register for one of the available webinar or on-site dates: July 28 August 4 August 11

Webinar Title: Spontaneous AEM Adaptation
Description: Have you ever realized that some of your instructional materials will not allow all of your students to work independently during a last minute lesson plan change? Even though OUR plans change, our students still need independence and consistency. After all, a universally designed environment is ALL of the time, not just when planning is near perfection. With a few simple tools and the magic of optical character recognition (OCR), you can alleviate potential panic by creating accessible educational materials (AEM) in those spur-of-the moments quickly. In this webinar, Kelli will provide participants with multiple, free or low-cost ways to make that happen.

Time: 3:30pm-4:30pm EST
Webinar Title: “Knock Knock"..."Who's there?"..."It's ME!"
Description: As educators, we want to bring out the best in our students. This isn’t something that we should do FOR them; but by providing our students with a universally designed learning environment, they will be able to facilitate their best “ME’’ independently. In doing so, we must offer students multiple means of expression. In this webinar, participants will have the opportunity to observe at least 5 ways that students who might struggle with various aspects of academics can show what they know through the creation of accessible digital products utilizing free/low-cost apps, software, and websites.
