Digital Make and Take: Digging Deeper

Advertisement for Digging Deeper Presconference

Two Day Pre-Conference, January 28th and 29th

 2014 Assistive Technology Industry Association Conference

 with Christopher Bugaj and Beth Poss


How often do you go to workshops, learn about new tools but upon returning home, never have time to develop your skills with the tools in order to use them successfully?

Don’t Sit N’ Get!

Do More. Learn More. Create More. Accomplish More.

We created a two day session which provides you with the opportunity to dig deep, learning how to use various digital applications with guidance and support. Come with an idea for an initiative, program, lesson, or activity that you’d like to start in your educational institution to propagate a change. Brainstorm, cultivate, and formulate that idea into something tangible and actionable using digital tools. Create a resource with the tools to take back home to use with students, clients, colleagues, or other staff. Use the time in this session to see your idea all the way through to fruition with guided practice from the facilitators. This session will minimize talking at you and maximize hands on doing!

Marketing for “The Practical (and Fun) Guide to Assistive Technology in Public Schools”

Hello everyone,

No new podcast episode with this post but I do have some book related news.  The Practical (and Fun) Guide to Assistive Technology in Public Schools comes out in April 2010.  You can pre-order your copy now from www.iste.org/chewat.  Over the next few weeks there will be much more information coming out about the book, the content within, and ways you can help spread the word to other educators about the book.  Here is just a taste of what is coming down the pike, not necessarily in this order:

1. Table of Contents

2.  Book Excerpt – Chapter 6: Choosing Assistive Technology Teammates (.PDF version)

3.  Book Excerpt – Chapter 6: Choosing Assistive Technology Teammates (.mp3 version)

4. “Practical” Video Trailer

6. Bookmarks for Bloggers —>Download the Complete Set of Bookmarks!

and more!

In order to get the word out about the book, it is our hope that you will spread these files around, sharing them with other educators who might be interested in the content.  Feel free to send them out via e-mail, post to your favorite social networking site (like Facebook or Twitter), tell people about them on listservs, have discussions on forums, and  print out paper versions to give other educators!

Thanks in advance and I hope you enjoy the experience of reading the book as well as helping it become a success!
