Ubiquitous Technology: Using Mainstream App Technology to Support Students Who Learn Differently
Apps are ubiquitous, prolific, can be installed in seconds and can be accessed anyplace anytime. 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. However, access to technology alone is not enough; students need to employ effective study 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.
