We started a community of higher education faculty members focused on sharing tips and tricks, research-based practices, and strategies for innovative use of educational technology in educator or leadership preparation programs.
This is a place where we build connectedness, share varied opinions, and bring together our knowledge about leveraging technology to support all students.
Network + Connect + Support
"CIDDL will change the culture of tech attitudes, adoption, and use to realize pedagogical promise in terms of practice, outcomes, and innovation." -Dr. James Basham
"We aim to bring together leaders in technology and special education in an expanding human and digital network that allows users to connect, share, learn, develop, ignite, and sustain innovative practices that support all students." -Dr. Jose Blackorby
Faculty and EdTech Learning Opportunities
State and district special education leaders share thoughts on the current technology knowledge and skills needed for special educators entering the field. Panelists will cover a wide range of topics including how to leverage technology to support learners accessing the curriculum, accessibility and AT in the classroom, progress monitoring and data collection, and managing caseloads. By the end of the webinar, participants will identify current needs of state and district education agencies to inform refinement of teacher preparation programs that include relevant technology competencies for special educators and direct service providers.
