Assitive Tech TDSB: Curriculum PD session spotlight

Professional Development Sessions
This week we launched a new series of PD sessions; ‘Using IWB to support students in DD ISP classrooms’ and ‘Using IWB to support students with ASD’. Both these sessions were available on Key to Learn for registration.
The first session provided participants with strategies and suggestions for using the SMART and Promethean Board to support students with developmental disabilities. Through demonstration and hands on experience, participants explored how to use the IWB to support readiness, reasoning, fine motor skills, language and mathematical skills among their students.

Embedded sound file (right of page) allows for student independence as instructions
are read out loud so students can play file as many times as required. 


Tools like a digital pen and eraser (bottom left of page) can be embedded on the page
to allow for easy student access to tool selection.

The second session provided participants with strategies and suggestions for using the Interactive White Board to support students with Autism. Participants explored how to use the interactive white board to support communication, attention, social skills and participation among their students.


Keep an eye open on Key to Learn for additional sessions throughout the year!
