iPad Apps for Organization -- Thursday, February 6, 2014
Several technologies that were once thought of as assistive technologies (such as speech-to-text and text-to-speech) have now moved into the mainstream. Apps are ubiquitous, prolific and can be installed in seconds. However, technology alone is not enough; students need to employ effective skills to take advantage of what these technologies have to offer. This workshop will provide training on evidence-based pedagogical practices and study skills that have proven effective for struggling students. Participants will learn how to implement time tested Landmark College approaches to supporting students who learn differently using the latest iPad Apps.
Strategies for Improving Executive Function and School Success -- Friday, February 7, 2014
Why do some bright students with good academic skills appear to “spin their wheels” and fail to achieve their potential? Often it’s a result of difficulty with executive functions, the ability to regulate goal-setting and task completion. This workshop explores the basis for executive function difficulty at school and home, providing educators and parents with insights for designing effective interventions that promote academic success. Participants will expand their repertoire of strategies for meeting the challenges of time and task management, with a focus on practicing a coaching-inspired approach to student self-management.
