What will teaching and learning look like for diverse learners on the other side of the pandemic?
When children return to school in the fall, having spent so much time away from the classroom during the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be many who struggle to cope with day-to-day learning tasks. This ‘learning gap’ can be particularly significant for children with diverse learning needs. Join Assistive Technology Specialist Rose Racicot and Crick Education Consultant Toni Caggiano for a free webinar in which they will explore some of the key questions that school educators and district leaders need to consider as they prepare for the new academic year, including:
- What do we anticipate being the main challenges for students going back in the fall, particularly those with diverse learning needs?
- What lessons have been learned during the pandemic that should influence our long-term teaching and learning practices?
- How can school districts maximize COVID-19 relief funding to ensure that students with diverse learning needs do not get left behind?
- What equity issues can be addressed by selecting accessible resources that can be easily differentiated for diverse learners?
This will be a 45-minute session. Registrants can join the webinar up to 15 minutes beforehand, and it will start promptly at the below times:
