Shelley’s Must-Know Technology Tools for Diverse Learners: 2017 Edition (EdRev event)

Technology is often called “the great equalizer” for students who learn differently, and with good reason.  The right tools, coupled with sound strategies, do more than just compensate for learning weaknesses; they also help students tap into their innate strengths, increase independence, and improve self-confidence.

Join assistive technology consultant Shelley Haven as she demonstrates her 2017 selection of game-changing technologies for students who struggle with reading, writing, math, taking notes, attention, organization, and planning.  This session will also help both beginners and experienced tech users get the most out of EdRev’s newly-designed Technology for Learning section.

Time: 9:00 to 10:15am (1.25 hours)

How to "Tech Up" Learning Skills This Summer for Success Next Fall (PEN Speaker Series)

Summer is a great time to introduce technology, as it avoids the pressure of learning new tools while juggling schoolwork.  But where do you start?  How do you “make it happen”?

This workshop will provide practical steps for getting kids up to speed on tools that assist with four important academic areas: reading, writing, taking notes, and managing time and tasks.  Join Assistive Technology Consultant Shelley Haven as she describes a 4-part summer technology plan including:

  • Recommendations of “essential tools” (Mac, PC, iOS, and Chrome)
  • Online and Bay Area training resources for learning how to operate them
  • Strategies for applying the technology effectively
  • Activities to help students practice and build confidence with the tools

Intended audience: Parents, teachers, and other education professionals working with students in grades 4 through college who have learning differences.

Date: Thursday, May 11, 2017

Time: 10:00am to 12:30pm (2.5 hours)

Location: Children’s Creativity Museum, 221 Fourth St., San Francisco, CA

Cost: See PEN registration page (below)
