I am a teacher for secondary students with special needs in Virginia. I teach 5 classes of Geometry in a collaborative setting and am currently working to implement UDL principles for the upcoming school year. I believe it is important to incorporate the 3 Rs-Rigor, Relevance and Relationships in our instruction to maximize student engagement and learning. I am currently serving as the chair of the Special Education Department at our school as well as a member of the 21st Century Skills PLC.
Presentation Title: Using Web 2.0 Technologies to Enhance Instruction in the Secondary Classroom
This presentation will demonstrate various ways to enhance learning using Web 2.0 tools.It will be designed to encourage those who are relatively new to Web 2.0 to use tools with which they may already be familiar as well as those they do not currently use to make their lessons more interesting and engaging for their students. I will share my experiences this year with Blackboard, Flip Cams, Livescribe’s Pulse Pen and various internet-based technologies in improving student performance in my classroom.
