Free EdTech Workshops at NESCA Starting 7/15 for Students with Learning Disabilities

From NESCA

July 2, 2015

NESCA Intern Courtney Rose Dykeman-Bermingham, a rising senior majoring in Neuroscience at Mount Holyoke College and volunteer at their AccessAbility Services (AAS) office, discusses top tech tools students with learning disabilities and executive function challenges to use to optimize educational experiences.

Program Schedule

July 15: Executive Functioning, Time Management & Organization — Learn about apps and web-based programs to help in these areas.

July 22: LiveScribe Smart Pens — Learn about this new format of note taking, where recordings and notes are synced.

July 29: Kurzweil 3000 Firefly — This is more than a screen reader; it can help your child organize their notes and makes finding specific passages easier.

August 5: Evernote — An innovative way to organize materials, it can create compilations of notes, images recordings and more.

Each sessions will include a seminar, relevant demonstrations and a Q&A period.

The use of these technologies would be most beneficial for high school and college aged students, but parents of younger students could also benefit from the knowledge.
