1. Webinar | Inclusion 2.0—What’s in Your Toolbox?


    from DonJohnstonInc Added 14 0 0

    Inclusion 1.0 gave students with IEPs physical access to the same education as their peers. But too often the support wasn’t there to make them successful in these settings. Inclusion 2.0 changes this. Instead of stopping at physical inclusion, it focuses on helping students succeed in their classrooms. There are three main shifts from Inclusion 1.0 to Inclusion 2.0: 1) Students must fail before getting support —> Needs are identified with data before students fail 2) Reliance on staff for support —> Personalized accommodations help students become independent 3) Progress tracking is used for compliance and reporting —> Data is used to inform instruction and prove outcomes In this webinar, Ben and Trish will show you how Don Johnston’s tools are designed to help you achieve Inclusion 2.0. First, needs are identified proactively with uPAR. Then personalized accommodations including Co:Writer and Snap&Read give students fluid access to the curriculum across devices. Finally, data from these tools proves outcomes and gives feedback. To learn more about uPAR, Snap&Read and Co:Writer, please visit http://donjohnston.com

Darren made his vision a reality across his 32 school campuses, and in this webinar he shares how he got there. You can learn the steps he took to bring Co:Writer and Snap&Read Universal to his district from vision, rollout, training, to watching his students tackle grade level materials with their new accommodations!

        • Webinar | Thinking Ahead to Testing – What if we get it wrong?


          from DonJohnstonInc Added 11 0 0

          With all of the changes to assessments and expectations over the past couple of years, it is never too early to start thinking ahead to make sure your students are prepared. Think about the potential impact to your students if they are using the wrong accommodations. What happens if their accommodations aren’t determined early enough? From PARCC to Smarter Balanced to STAAR and more, each state has their own rules and regulations regarding allowable accommodations. BUT … No matter what state you are in, certain rules and conditions must be covered to make sure your students are set up for success. Ruth Ziolkowski joins us to discuss what you need to consider as you begin this school year, including a data-driven approach to address accommodations. In this 30-minute webinar, Ruth introduces you to uPAR and shares how personalized accommodations like Snap&Read Universal give your students fluid access to the curriculum across devices. Watch this on-demand webinar (and bring your team!) to learn what you can do now to make sure you are ready when testing season begins. About the Presenter: Ruth Ziolkowski is the President of Don Johnston and a member of several education boards such as Accessible Educational Materials, ATIA, and Bookshare. In addition, Ruth has acted as liaison between the assessment consortia and AT field.

              • How to view augmented reality content in Guinness World Records books


                from Chelsea Wright Added 10 0 0

                Read more about augmented reality in school libraries - via my blog: http://ithappenedinthelibrary.com/2015/08/06/augmented-reality/ Instructions for Guinness World Records books 2013, 2014 and 2015: 1. Download the Guinness World Records app for the year that is associated with your book - there is a separate app for each of the three books/years (download here: http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/seeit3d/ ) 2. Open the app and point your device at a page that contains augmented content. FAQs Q. Which pages contain augmented content? A. There is a listing in the index page. Otherwise, look for the black semicircle on the side of the page (see video) Q. Can't I use the same app for all three books? A. Unfortunately, no. The 2013 app will only reveal augmented content for the 2013 book... the 2014 will only reveal content for the 2014 book... and so on. You will need all three apps on your device in order to view the content for all three books. You will need to flick between the three apps as you view the content. Q. What is "augmented reality"? A. Augmented reality involves a 'digital layer' or animation, which appears on top of the real world. In other words you see the real world, but you also see a digital representation of something infront of you at the same time (as though it were part of the real world). Augmented reality is not the same thing as 'virtual reality'. Virtual reality offers an experience which is entirely removed from the real word and is completely digital.
