As the COVID-19 pandemic impacted the nation, educational professionals were forced to adapt to online platforms and provide instruction with little guidance and virtually no time to prepare.
As the educational community continues to innovate new strategies to best meet the needs of students with disabilities based on ever-changing conditions, alternatives for typical in-person activities and best practices have started to emerge. During this workshop, the presenter will describe strategies and technologies to enhance the remote classroom to optimize students’ academic learning time. Participants will learn innovative ways to engage students with special needs by incorporating opportunities to respond, manage off-task behaviors while promoting on-task behaviors, and facilitate effective instruction while considering IEP goals and existing curricula. Additionally, participants will be provided with time for application to their own professional setting and discussion with others.
