Educators Register Today for the Providing Accommodations in a Virtual Environment Webinar
The Florida Diagnostic and Learning Resources System is proud to announce a webinar for educators to learn more about providing accommodations for students in a virtual environment. While providing instruction to students with Individual Education Plans and Section 504 Plans in a virtual environment, it is important to continue to provide them with the necessary accommodations so that they can continue to be successful. This webinar will provide examples of possible digital accommodations that can be used in virtual instruction based on the student's current accommodation needs. We will also discuss ideas for documenting and accessing the implementation of these digital accommodations.
In these unique times, everything about this new version of "virtual learning" is new to us. Teachers are scrambling to figure out appropriate platforms to use in virtual learning and exploring what type of instruction and assessments will work for their students. Learners in the classroom may have support needs that are very complex or unique, therefore, the struggles go beyond issues of instruction and assessment.
In this webinar, Dr. Paula Kluth will address these new challenges teachers and families are facing in the age of e-learning. She will provide five recommendations for making the most out of the virtual classroom. The session includes recommendations for working with families, ideas collaborating with paraprofessionals, and suggestions for connecting learning objectives to activities completed at home.
