Great things are happening in our Atomic Catalyst courses, which cover a variety of topics. One of the courses, Intro to the iPad for Students with Special Needs, offers a monthly webinar with a panel of experts, class participants, and others who are interested in collaborating ideas. The webinars allow participants to learn more about the impact of iPads on students with special needs, provide the opportunity to ask about implementation tips or app features, and share what they have learned from personal experience. The stories being shared may be in the form of classroom experience, a white paper, or a case study about a specific student's special needs.
Tomorrow, we will have a special guest in the webinar, student Ethan Och. Ethan is a student with spinal muscular atrophy, a key member of his high school band, and a rock star with iAuthor. Meet Ethan:
Last month, Atomic Learning hosted the first in a series of three show and tell webinar series. The webinars allow you to learn more about the impact of iPads on students with special needs, provide the opportunity for you to ask about implementation tips or app features, and share what you have learned from your experience. The stories being shared may be in the form of classroom experience, a white paper, or a case study about a specific student's special needs.
We are excited to welcome back previous panelists:
Every educator impacts students, but are they able to effectively reach ALL their students? Anyone working with students with disabilities who fails to provide accessible instruction and materials is inadvertently building barriers to learning.
In honor of National Disability Awareness Month, Atomic Learning is encouraging educators to take a pledge to provide accessible instruction to reach all learners. The pledge can be found at: http://www.atomiclearning.com/k12/pledge.
A Facebook cover photo has been developed to show support for providing accessible materials, those who submit the pledge will receive the cover photo by email, it can also be found here.
Atomic Learning promotes the practical application of technology in education.
Thousands of schools, colleges, and universities have made Atomic Learning an integral part of their professional development programs, a valuable curriculum supplement and an anytime/anywhere software training resource.
