  • Facilitator Participants Who you are? What are your experiences with Assistive Technology? MAKE SURE TO ADD DATE OF SECOND TRAINING SESSION TO THE POWERPOINT SLIDE Presenter says: Thanks for attending this workshop today. We are excited about working with all of you to increase the use of assistive technology throughout the job accommodation process. We are from the Assistive Technology Services department from CP of New Jersey. We have been providing assistive technology services to consumers throughout the state for over 20 years. Today is the first part of this two part training series. We will be back on [say 2 nd date] to complete this training with you. Take a minute and write the next training date on the front page of your workbook. Presenter: Go around the room and have people say their name. Ask participants to describe their experience with assistive technology. Go over layout of the workbook. Explain how each slide has a section below it for notes. Remind participants to complete the front page of the workbook. Include in the training dates and ask them to write their name on the front page. They don’t want to lose their book once they spend time writing notes in it. Go over the sections of the book. Remind them to bring their book to the second session – they will only be given handouts and not another book.
  • Presenter: Review ground rules for the day.
  • Presenter: Review ground rules for the day.
  • Presenter: Remind the participants to have fun throughout the training. Also make sure to remind people that this is THEIR training – ask any question to make sure that this training is beneficial to you. Ask if there are any questions before starting the next section.
  • Presenter: Make sure to take one minute to make sure that there are no questions before moving to the next section.
  • The good news is that UDL is not in conflict with other methods and practices. It actually incorporates and supports many current research-based approaches to teaching and learning, such as the following: Cooperative learning (group work) Differentiated instruction (see TEAL Center Fact Sheet No. 5 on Differentiated Instruction) Performance-based assessment Project-based learning Multisensory teaching Theory of multiple intelligences Principles of student-centered learning (see TEAL Center Fact Sheet No. 6 on Student-Centered Learning)
  • Print out a quiz for AT misconceptions
  • Presenter: Make sure to take one minute to make sure that there are no questions before moving to the next section.
