FCTD offers GREAT resources through summer A.T. Institute
The Family Center on Technology and Disability (FCTD) is wrapping up their 2-week A.T. Institute today. The two sessions available this year were:
1. Accessible Instructional Materials (AIMs)
2. Social Media Tools
With its unique format, the A.T. Institute provided a wide range of information in an interactive discussion with professionals of diverse backgrounds. Discussions were led by a team of experts including: Betsy Burgess, Annette Cerreta, Joy Zabala, Chris Bugaj, and Alice Wershing. Attendees particpated by asking questions and/or sharing their knowledge and experience with other participants. The two week course provided the opportunity to discuss pertanent information regarding today's needs for access to Accessible Instructional Materials such as digital text (Books on CD or in MP3 format for example) and eText and Social Media Tools such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and yes... even blogging!
A big THANK YOU to FCTD for providing this opportunity and CEUs all for FREE!!!
