Join us for this hands-on workshop appropriate for learning specialists, psychologists, faculty, school counselors, and staff. Adaptive and assistive technology for learning is developing rapidly as new digital applications emerge. This interactive workshop presents one school’s use of these tools to help the students bridge the gap between their skills and the tasks that educational and vocational environments require. The emphasis is on matching the right technology to the right student for the right task; training the students to adopt the technology and make it their own. A wide variety of the latest technologies will be demonstrated.
