As classrooms increasingly have access to new learning technologies, it is important to support professionals in trying to meet the literacy, learning and assistive technology needs of students who struggle with reading and writing. Primary focus is on technology-based instructional strategies that help to differentiate learning. Topics include: Making adjustments to the computer for learner success, Light to High tech tools for access to English Language Arts curriculum, Software to support basic skills acquisition, Differentiated Instruction using the Read/Write Web and Universal Design for Learning, and Multimedia project-based learning. The content for this course is based on the research of the National Reading Panel Report. General principles of Universal Design are a common theme. Designing multiple ways of receiving information is balanced by considerations for multiple means of expression.
