    Supporting Students with IEPs During eLearning Days | SETDA Coalition for eLearning

    5:00PM – 6:00PM ET on Monday, March 23, 2020

    In support of the SETDA Coalition for eLearning, SETDA has compiled and provided resources on eLearning for state education agencies and school districts at no cost with a special section on accessibility. Digital learning environments are known to present physical, sensory, and learning barriers for students with disabilities. As learners and teachers move to fully online environments in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, what are the considerations for students with Individual Education Plans (IEPs) and the accessibility of the materials and technologies selected? What are best practices for supporting students with disabilities remotely?

    Accessibility of an OER means that all students are afforded the same opportunity to learn from a material, regardless of the tools they use for access. Learner variability is the norm, not the exception, so consideration of the ways students interact with digital materials is essential for curating and authoring inclusive OER.

    We know from experience and neuroscience that individuals learn in varied ways. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) provides educators with practical strategies and techniques to ensure that all learners can meet high expectations. In this session, we will explore the foundational concepts of UDL as one component of an inclusive learning environment - the other two being the universal design of the physical space and the accessibility of the learning tools and materials. The discussion will include demonstrations of a number of new tools for making STEM content accessible for a variety of learners.

    AccessATE supports the ATE community in making curriculum accessible for all students and faculty, including those with disabilities. This session will focus on Universal Design for Learning (UDL), which is a curriculum design framework for creating more inclusive learning environments for all. ATE grantees will learn how AccessATE can work with them to create accessible and universally designed curriculum with hands-on assistance, and get a sneak peek at making a UDL syllabus, course media, and OERs.

    Be inspired to learn accessibility skills to make your ATE project and center STEM curriculum materials, including documents, graphics, and videos, more usable for all learners. Led by experts from CAST (the Center for Applied Special Technology), this interactive workshop will focus on practical uses of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), a framework to improve and optimize teaching and learning for all people based on scientific insights into how humans learn. As UDL begins with a strong foundation in accessibility, the first half of the workshop will focus on the four accessibility principles of POUR (Perceivable, Operable, Understandable, Robust). POUR will be applied to STEM-related course content through a series of material makeover demonstrations. Common examples of educational materials will be first displayed in traditional formats, followed by POUR- aligned accessible versions.

    Executive functioning describes the kind of purposeful planning that is needed for complex actions such as writing an essay or solving a math problem. As learners move into high school and college, it’s crucial they have developed executive functioning skills to keep up with increasing time demands. In addition to iPad apps, we will discuss Google Chrome extensions, online tools and even wearable solutions that provide schedules, timers, to do lists and other executive functioning supports.
