EdTech Associates has been presenting webinars with ISTE and Schools Moving Up the last few years. We have archived some of these webinars for your current viewing pleasure.

ISTE TIP Webinar – April 14, 2010
Math and Technology – Bringing Research to Practice
Presented by Kathleen McClaskey, EdTech Associates

What are the eight learning areas in mathematics? What evidenced-based instructional interventions can be employed to support the continuum of learner differences in these eight areas? How can online tools support student learning in math? In this presentation, participants are invited to learn about how to apply interactive simulations and online tools to what evidenced-based research indicates are the most effective interventions in math. Using evidenced-based recommendations made by the Institute of Education Sciences and the MISTM project, participants will learn how online math simulations and interactive tools can support math instruction while improving student learning.

ISTE TIP Webinar – September 17, 2008
presented by Kathleen McClaskey and Randy Welch

As the field of education experiences an exponential increase in students diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, a new and effective model for instructing students is called for. Interactive whiteboards have revolutionized how teachers engage and teach autistic students in group instruction at a residential special education school in New Hampshire. This technology has offered new opportunities for students with Autism Spectrum Disorders and other neurological impairments to demonstrate spontaneous social learning and increased on-task classroom behaviors. Video vignettes will illustrate how instructional practices have changed the paradigm of a classroom for students with autism and the resulting student outcomes that occurred, both expected and unanticipated.

Schools Moving Up Webinar – May 27, 2009
presented by Kathleen McClaskey and Randy Welch

The significant increase in diverse learners including students with autism spectrum disorders and behavioral disorders with learning disabilities necessitates a new and effective model for engaging these learners. In this webinar, Kathleen H. McClaskey, President of EdTech Associates, Inc., and Randy J. Welch, Chief Program Officer, Spaulding Youth Center, will discuss how interactive whiteboards have revolutionized the ways teachers engage and teach diverse learners at a special education school in New Hampshire. This technology, in conjunction with desktop and online tools, has offered new opportunities for these students to demonstrate spontaneous social learning and increased on-task classroom behaviors while significantly decreasing disruptive and maladaptive behaviors. Video vignettes will illustrate how instructional practices have changed the paradigm of a classroom for diverse learners and present both the expected and unanticipated student outcomes.

Schools Moving Up Webinar - October 24, 2007

Technology provides a new opportunity to remove barriers to learning and improve the literacy skills of all students. Through discussion and demonstration, Kathleen H. McClaskey, President of EdTech Associates, and Joan Sedita, founding partner of Keys To Literacy, will introduce participants to accessible desktop and "no cost" online tools that can be used to support the teaching and learning of reading omprehension and vocabulary strategies. Suggestions will be provided for how these technology tools can be used to develop topic webs and graphic organizers; identify, highlight, and pull out main ideas and details into notes; generate summaries; and support word-study skills such as focusing on word parts and creating semantic webs. This event will emphasize the importance of direct comprehension and vocabulary instruction, as well as how to integrate the technology tools into this instruction.
