Google Tools for Effective Instruction for Students with Disabilities and Diverse Learning Styles

Workshop Tile

Workshop provided in collaboration with EDCO Collaborative

This workshop directly fulfills the new DESE Individual Professional Development plan requirement of 15 PDPs in the area of training related to strategies for effective schools for students with disabilities and instruction of students with diverse learning styles. Each session will include a short reading, and an exploration of two or more Google Tools. Also, as part of each session, participants will be asked to contribute to a comprehensive and collaborative collection of lesson plans and ideas that will be shared amongst the group. The goal is to create a resource to be used by all – both within the course and beyond.
