TN Assistive Technology Conference 2013: Preparing Students for PARCC Testing
The Tennessee Association for Assistive Technology has announced an amazing lineup of scheduled sessions for their 2013 conference. Held yearly in Murfreesboro, TN, this is an outstanding event for those who want to learn more about the use of AT in the special education setting. Many of the sessions offered this year are designed to address the use of augmentative communication tools and strategies with language impaired students, while others will focus on using Assistive Technologies to adapt instruction for the new Common Core State Standards. Even better, there are a large number of sessions designed to provide guidance in preparing students with special needs for the PARCC and NCSC related online assessments. PARCC recently released its list of approved assistive technologies that will be integrated into their testing formats and teachers are rushing to find ways to teach students to use these supports. If you’re looking for help with this daunting task, then the TAAT Conference 2013 is the place to be! Session Time Ordered List.
