Facilitator will provide extensive resources through a collaborative online presence.************************************ OUTCOMES: Participants will: · Effectively match student needs to Accessible Educational Materials format in order to access Core Content and classroom materials. · Understand and integrate Open Educational Resources into the delivery of accessible instruction. · Explore a range of technology tools (for all OS platforms) that can be used to create/modify/provide access to Core Content and classroom materials. · Develop a plan for a district wide system for creation, storage and using accessible Core Content and classroom materials..******************************************************************************************************************************************** INFINITEC IS WORKING IN COLLABORATION WITH HILIA/REGIONAL OFFICE OF EDUCATION #17
