Live Webinar—Online Learning & Special-Needs Children

Free Live Webinar:

Reaching Students With Special Needs Through E-Learning
Tuesday, Sept. 20, 2 p.m. EDT
Also available “on demand” any time 24 hours after the event.
Free registration is now open.

Students with special learning needs often benefit from different and more personalized ways of mastering classroom material. More virtual education opportunities are now available to help meet the academic needs of children with cognitive or physical disabilities, those learning English, gifted and talented students, and those at risk of academic failure. Educators are trying to balance the potential of virtual learning with the need for face-to-face instruction for these groups of students. They are finding that assistive technologies, social-networking tools, and multimedia curricula are helping to build e-learning programs for students from special populations that can help improve academic achievement.

Guests:

  • Katharina I. Boser, cognitive-development psychologist; co-chair, Innovative Technology for Autism advisory board, Autism Speaks.
  • Patti Ralabate, director of implementation, Center for Applied Special Technology.
  • Matthew J. Wicks, vice president of strategy and organizational development, International Association for K-12 Online Learning.

This webinar will be moderated by Michelle Davis, senior writer, Education Week Digital Directions.
