I am happy once again to be offering the "Technology Links to Language Intervention" course starting in February. This is a hybrid course with a 6-hr face-to-face workshop in Waltham on February 6, 2014 followed by an required online component, offered for PDPs and an optional graduate credit available from Framingham State College (not for official ASHA CEUs). The online activities require about an hour weekly and run through March 14, 2014.
In this class, you will:
-experience models of technology integration with curriculum contexts and IEP objectives
-evaluate web and mobile (iPad) resources according to the FIVES criteria
-learn many tech tricks and practice them with peers
-create pre- and post-activities around technology resources and contexts that further clinical objectives
-access channels for further learning about technology integration in your work.
My favorite part of the course is when I get to step back a bit (but not totally!) and let participants engage with each other around selected articles related to tech integration and language-enriching methodologies, as well as create and share with each other exemplars of work created with web tools and apps.
This course is designed to be helpful to SLPs and anyone else who works closely with language development issues, such as ESL/ELL teachers, literacy specialists, or special education teachers. The course is listed as being geared toward K-8 but has applicability for the preschool and high school populations as well.
You can find all the information and registration materials here! (registration is managed entirely through EDCO) Hope to see some of you there.
