Join Jessica Jackson of Digital Promise and Share My Lesson for a webinar on supporting all students while online learning.

Available on Demand

With the sudden shift to distance learning, schools and educators have scrambled to creatively support complex learners with diverse needs. The educators have adapted their communication to families, transitioned IEP meetings to virtual conferencing, and ensured their learners are still able to receive their services through tele-therapy. However, it is also imperative for educators to adapt their instruction to create inclusive, accessible learning environments for their learners, just as they would in a physical classroom. This webinar will focus on these practices and how learners with variability can access and thrive in the distance learning context.

During this session, participants will explore research-based strategies and universal design for learning principles that they can embed in their instruction. We will explore the Learner Variability Navigator’s research-based strategies that teachers can use in the classroom and also adapt for online learning and build teacher “workspaces” using those strategies and other material. Participants will walk away with free resources and concrete ways to address learner variability in their classrooms this fall.


Available for one hour of PD credit. A certificate of completion will be available for download at the end of your session that you can submit for your school's or district's approval. 

On Demand version is available in closed captioning in English and Spanish.
