The 4-Step Roadmap for Reaching & Teaching Students of All Abilities: The Power of T.H.E. P.A.C.T. (Technology Helps Easy & Practical Accessible Curriculum Teaching)
Students learn best with consistency, routines, predictability, engaging and accessible materials. Technology Helps Easy and Practical Accessible Curriculum Teaching, T.H.E.P.A.C.T., is systems-based instruction that provides a foundation for adapting any curriculum unit to meet the needs of all students, of all ages. Integration of consistent technology tools, color-coding and conventions allow students to focus on WHAT they are learning, rather than HOW they are learning it. This approach to Universal Design for Learning weaves common threads into lessons, while reducing planning and prep time for teachers and therapists.
In this full- day seminar, participants will explore technology in support of the 4 essential language-based modules to Learn About language and individual vocabulary, Read About the vocabulary in sentences and paragraphs to gain knowledge, Write About the vocabulary in concrete visual form, and Talk About what is learned to share knowledge and increase participation. Case studies and templates of instructional lessons will be shared. Individuals will bring their own devices for hands-on creation of activities to support the teaching framework. Attendees will walk away with a tool chest of ideas to integrate technology into any topic.
