This year’s institute will have two learning strands: Accessible Instructional Materials and Social Media Tools. Here's an excerpt from the notice:
Accessible Instructional Materials will explore the world of accessible media, including the laws designed to get instructional materials into the hands of students with print disabilities. Participants will learn about digital formats, how to find and access digital books, and about software and hardware suitable for classroom, home, and therapeutic environments.
Social Media Tools: Facebook, YouTube, Blogs, Wikis, Twitter... If you’re an experienced user of social media, you are invited to share your insights and resources. If you’re quietly guarding the secret that you really have no idea what a wiki is, and Twittering….then this is the place to learn, in educator/parent/disability professional friendly language.
