The American with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires entities that receive federal funding, including public schools, to provide equal access to their programs, activities, and services to those with disabilities. Schools have recognized this and have made proper modifications to their physical building site but most have not realized this also applies to their website and documents. This workshop is designed to review what modifications should be made to ensure school websites and documents provide equal access to those with disabilities.

Make Learning Fun and Neat with Google’s G Suite--Cancelled Duw to Low Enrollment

January 30, 2018--CCISD

February 2, 2018--GOISD

9 a.m. - 3 p.m. EST

Over the past two decades, Mid-continent Research for Education and Learning, known as McREL, researched strategies successful teachers employ in their classrooms.  The strategies were categorized into nine different topics and placed into a framework for instructional planning. This framework starts with the essential task of creating the environment for learning which includes student engagement. Google’s G Suite offers several free resources that teachers can use to help engage their students, organize learning resources and address diverse learning needs.  During this session, Google Certified Trainer, Steve Kass, will walk participants through some of these tools and how they can be best implemented utilizing the framework for instruction identified by McREL.
