VSTE Goes Green: Over the years we’ve made an effort to reduce the amount of paper waste that gets accumulated by reducing the scope of the printed program. This year we will provide a printed conference program with only a summary schedule of the sessions available during each breakout session. For the full detailed listing of each session we encourage attendees to make use of our online schedule here which will work on mobile devices and all major platforms.

Interactive White Boards are standard in most regular classrooms these days and should be standard in special educations classrooms as well. Coming to the board and physically interacting with the material presented can add another dimension to learning for special education students. Plus differentiating the material in one Interactive Whiteboard Activity is so easy to do. Everyone in the class can participate. In this session the presenter will show practical suggestions for helping your special education students become comfortable using the Interactive Whiteboard and demonstrate many activities that have been used successfully in the special education classroom. The presenter will demonstrate activities made in Smart Notebook, Active Inspire, and Interwrite Workspace. The topics covered will include: First steps – Learning to use the pen or finger to manipulate items on the board. Websites – Internet sites that are easy to use with the Interactive Whiteboards. Designing Activities – Considerations when designing Interactive Whiteboard activities for the special education classroom. Differentiation - Every student in the class can participate in the activity because each page can be planned with individual student’s needs in mind. Documentation – How to capture student performance in an Interactive Whiteboard activity.
