The 21st Century Classroom: Tablet-based Pedagogical Practices for Supporting Diverse Learners
Many schools are moving towards campus-wide tablet initiatives that put a tablet in the hands of each student and teacher. Tablets offer a great deal of promise as tools for enhancing student learning, but only when accompanied by effective pedagogical practices. This is particularly true for students who typically struggle in the traditional classroom. When practices don't meet the needs of students at the margins, they can find themselves further behind their peers than they would have otherwise been. This workshops will focus on effective pedagogical practices for supporting students with diverse learning needs and will provide examples of how Apps can be used to enhance and in some instance transform how those practices are implemented in today's classroom.
