Event Description

Date: Tuesday, January 22
Time: 3:00-4:00 PM ET
Presenters: Leslie Fetzer, SREB/iNACOL National Online Teacher of the Year and Laura Sampson, EdTech Leaders Online (ETLO)

According to the iNACOL Standards for Quality Online Teaching, a teacher should know how to accommodate curriculum to include all students and understand how to use assistive technologies. With a growing number of students turning to online learning, it will be increasingly important to know how to read an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or a 504 plan and make accommodations for these students online.  


During this interactive webinar, Laura Sampson, Online Facilitator with ETLO, will be joined by Leslie Fetzer, SREB/iNACOL 2012 National Online Teacher of the Year. Leslie is a pioneer in teaching students with special needs in online environments. Laura and Leslie will share their ideas on how to make the online learning environment more accessible for all. Using examples from ETLO's Blended Learning training course and anecdotes from teaching in the field, Laura and Leslie will focus on some techniques to adapt online activities and ways to meet the details of an IEP. Webinar participants will also be encouraged to share their thoughts and experiences with accommodating the needs of all students in online environments.
