Every classroom has students who struggle with learning.

Currently, every single teacher has students in their classroom who are struggling. They may have an identified disability but they may not. Participants will walk away from this session with a solid understanding of the Universal Design for Learning framework AND a wide variety of edtech tools that can be employed in the classroom to help every student learn. They will learn about free, online edtech tools that they can use in order to carry out the best practice strategies in the UDL guidelines. Using the UDL guidelines as the roadmap, participants in this session will walk away with knowledge of some of the best edtech tools and chrome accessibility tools that will make their students successful. I have given many sessions of this type and the feedback has always been overwhelmingly positive.
