Presented by: Mike Marotta
Date & Time: Tuesday, April 9, 2019 8:30 AM - 11:15 AM EST

The use of Google tools & Chromebooks continues to explode in education. But how can we use this array of tools to promote a culture of Universal Design for Learning (UDL)? This workshop will focus on the three principles of UDL - Multiple Means of Engagement; Representation; and, Action & Expression - and explore ways to incorporate Google tools into the UDL learning environment. From Chrome apps and extensions to Google tools such as Cardboard, this workshop will highlight ways to support ALL learners in the classroom. Make sure to bring your devices to participate in the learning!

  • Understand a minimum of three core differences between a Chromebook, standard computer and tablet technology tool for education. Participants will also experience assistive technology hardware supports to use with the Chrome platform to meet the diverse needs of all learners.
  • Discuss and identify at least three examples of utilizing G Suite for Education, both in the classroom and at home, to facilitate student learning in the areas of: Literacy, learning, researching and executive function.
  • Through hands on exploration and collaboration with peers, evaluate and determine a minimum of five effective Google Apps and Extensions that will meet the unique needs of each learner in the both the special education and regular education classroom.
