Reaching all Learners: Common Core Tests for Students with Significant Cognitive Delays  (Register Here)
The Common Core State Standards and aligned tests have brought a momentous change to the way students with severe cognitive disabilities are assessed. Two federally-funded consortia, Dynamic Learning Maps and the National Center and State Collaborative, have been tasked with creating alternate assessments for this small population of students with widely diverse needs. The consortia are also working with teachers on developing common-core-based lesson plans that are appropriate for students with cognitive impairments. Join Neal Kingston, the project director for DLM, and Rachel Quenemoen, the project director for NCSC, as they discuss their approaches to assessing these students and the challenges and opportunities presented by this work.

Empowering Students with Project Based Learning and Google Tablets  (Register Here)
In this webinar, you’ll hear how St. Albans City School is empowering students by putting Google tools into their hands to improve their community. Students are engaging with the local community to improve the region’s trail systems, while reducing the unfiltered phosphates that run off the trails and negatively impact Lake Champlain. Students are directly applying principles contained in the Next Generation Science Standards for schools. Tune in for the details of this learning project and how educators are transforming teaching & learning through some of these Google tools. Starting in the middle of the 2013–2014 school year, St. Albans City School—a preK–8 building made up of approximately 700 students and 150 staff members—began a pilot program with 30 Android tablets and Google Play for Education. They procured affordable Nexus 7 tablets, with accurate GPS, quality cameras, and easy Google Apps integration and implemented a successful program schoolwide.
