The Assistive Technology department’s Interactive Whiteboard Learning Communities are in their final week of sessions at Terraview Learning Centre (East) and Burnhamthorpe Adult Learning Centre (West). The focus of this fourth session is Differentiation strategies for Math using IWB tools or Functional Numeracy – depending on the classroom exceptionality.
Our team continuously is updating our Tech and Special Education Youtube site to include videos which model the use of Promethean Active Inspire interactive whiteboard tools with a focus on supporting Special Education students. The videos combine examples of curriculum-embedded activities, IWB tools and student-specific learning needs. Below are just a few that include (but are not necessarily exclusive) to the application of a tool in a Math context. (Click on the image to go directly to the video.)
