IWB Professional Development

Join us for a PD for Teachers using SMART Boards

Join us for an interactive professional development event for Access Point Teachers!

FDLRS Action is pleased to announce a professional development brought to us by Brian Newton​, ​SMART certified trainer. This interactive professional development opportunity will provide participants with ​a strong command of SMART software and hardware. Target audience for this professional development is teachers of students with significant cognitive disabilities working on Access Points or teachers of students who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing. With a better understanding of these tools participants will be able to develop curriculum that may make content more accessible to your students with unique specialized needs​. The day will begin with an introduction for novice users, building on concepts throughout the day, and by the end of the professional development​ you should be a SMART guru!
