These teams will explore a variety of new and old technologies that can help create dynamic learning opportunities for a wide range of students, with participants working together to decide which tools work best to support students’ access to grade-level content and which tools can provide multiple means for students to show us what they know and can do. Team members will start with what they already have in their schools and then learn new tools. Not only will they explore the tools and inquire in their own classrooms about what they can (and cannot) do, they will learn an integrated design approach for technological decision-making and develop expertise at making thoughtful pedagogical decisions based on what works best for students’ learning. Overall, participants will learn ways to integrate technological tools in sustainable and inclusive ways and will have the opportunity to create digital representations of their work to be published in the spring. Each team will meet four times at Teachers College.

Cohort A will meet on 11/18, 12/16, and 1/13

Teacher Assistants or Paraprofessionals are critical participants when creating classrooms that are inclusive of all students. This workshop is specifically designed for paraprofessionals/teacher assistants and the teachers with whom they are paired. This workshop will focus on how to support and encourage the engagement of children with IEPs in classroom activities, while simultaneously facilitating student independence. The workshop will cover techniques for documenting children’s learning, communication structures between paraprofessionals and teachers, and supporting the classroom management routines of the teacher.
