Description

How do you enable all stakeholders to positively impact the lives of students who learn differently? As the future of teaching continues to evolve, tools for children in special education and those with learning differences have not adapted quickly. The achievement gap for this population remains high, and research has proven that pure legal compliance does not equate to improved academic outcomes for students with disabilities. In this featured session, you'll hear from experts in the field on how a variety of companies have used technology to tackle learning differences in the classroom. These chief executives will address the future of EdTech as it relates to new, specialized tools in special education. Importantly, they will also address how to apply known technology-based best practices and design spaces to help you adapt to the needs of students with learning challenges.
