Supporting all learners using the IWB software tools and peripherals in MathematicsAT Team present at ECOO
Members of the AT team traveled out to Niagara Falls last week to present at the Educational Computing Organization of Ontario's (ECOO) annual conference: Bring IT Together. Highlighting the AT focus of the team, the presentation, "Making Math Mathemagical for all using the IWB" showcased the use of the Promethean Interactive Whiteboard software tools and peripherals to support differentiated learning for Special Education students.
The presentation modelled a three-part Math lesson as the springboard to use digital tools and multimedia resources in a way that is essential to some students and useful to all.
