NOTE: Since April 2020, we have been offering every one of our presentations and trainings in virtual modalities (e.g., Zoom, WebEx, Teams, Hopin, Skype). Reach out if you need specifics, as we’ve optimized the way we engage with our audiences from afar!
This talk will teach participants to:
- Understand the responsibilities of schools which use technology to meet educational needs
- Consider multiple lower, appellate, and Supreme Court cases which provide precedent and guidance when and how to intervene
- Determine how policy should be structured, and whether to move towards a prohibitive or permission atmosphere regarding devices
- Apply the Response to Intervention Model to the school’s current structure and environment
- Assess the existing state of your school climate, and identify what can be done to improve it
