The Inclusive Classroom (Using tech for additional learning needs) (Southba...
“As a teacher, I am constantly on the hunt for technology and tools that give students with additional learning needs an environment that is personalised, differentiated and yet as close to their peers’ experience as possible… With Windows 10 and Office 365, I have been able to find and use many of the accommodations that I have been looking for making consumption of materials, content creation, collaboration and organisation possible for students using the same technology and tools as their peers.” – Robin Lowell, Special Education, Science and Mathematics teacher.
Microsoft's mission is to empower all people and all organisations to achieve more. The classroom is no different. Microsoft provides a robust platform for students to fully engage with their curricula, classmates, and teachers in powerful new ways. These tools and solutions work in tandem with Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles, among others, and help teachers spend less time creating workarounds and more time working with their students.
