Distance Learning Challenges: Maintaining Literacy Rigor and Meeting IEP/504 Accommodations with Rosen-LightSail

As you shift to online learning due to the coronavirus, there are new challenges in delivering instruction. In this time of distance learning, targeting the unique needs of each student can be a daunting task for educators. Additionally, it can be even more difficult to meet the needs of our students with learning challenges such as dyslexia and IEP/504 accommodations. The use of the right technology to support literacy can help students navigate text and enable teachers to accommodate students’ individual needs without adjusting the rigor of the curriculum.

Join us in a webinar where we will explore using Rosen-LightSail to offer some tips, techniques, and strategies designed to keep your students learning while providing them with the appropriate scaffolding for support so they can continue to thrive in these uncharted times in education.
