Strategies for eLearning

eLearning for students with complex needs requires individualized strategies geared specifically towards that population of students. Here you’ll find a few best practices.

 

  1. Materials are available as PDFs, which are easy and flexible to share through email, Google Classroom, and Learning Management Systems—or print them off for students without devices or Internet access.
  2. Videos—Record yourself reading the leveled graphic novel with the graphic novel on-screen for the students to see.
  3. Jamboard—Create letter tiles to use with the Making Words Phonics program.
  4. Print Center—Limited Internet access? Not a problem! With the print center feature, all materials for the entire thematic unit can be printed in order making it easy to send materials home to students.
