Our first of four webinars for teachers this year was presented by Dr. Sean Smith on ‘Social Skills and Apps for Students with Disabilities’. He described a plethora of tech tools, including many free or low-cost apps, which can be used with any student, but particularly with students with disabilities, to teach social skills. Many of the tools incorporate content areas such as English language arts.
Background on Webinars for Teacher
The Center on Online Learning and Students with Disabilities conducts annual nationwide surveys with various groups, including teachers, administrators, students and parents. In order to get surveys from each state, teachers from every state have volunteered to distribute the surveys to appropriate persons. As one way to express our appreciation to these teachers, we are providing live webinars on topics in which they are interested. These webinars will be archived and available on the Center’s website.
