About the event
Session Type: Hands-on Workshop
This hands-on workshop explores the relationship between universal design and assistive technology in an educational technology smack-down battle. The purpose of this “smackdown” is to explore EdTech applications that foster active, experiential learning via a battle royal style competition
Dr. Sherida Habersham will present a lightning demo of at least 10 educational technology applications, followed by audience voting on which apps should be “tabled” and which apps should be further explored. By the end of this interactive, game show-style workshop, one app will be crowned the winner of this no-holds-barred app smackdown. Outcomes: By the end of this workshop participants will be able to:
- Differentiate between specific assistive technology applications and applications that support universal learning design
- Identify at least one app that they would like to implement in the future
- Collect multiple use cases for different apps
- Gain experience with rapid-fire professional development techniques to drive the experimentation and implementation of new education technology tools to support all learners.
