Virtual Reality Immersive Expo

Tue, 09 May 2017 08:40:47 EDT

There have been many advances in technology that can provide educators with the tools to facilitate deeper learning of complex concepts, and provide students with a more immersive learning experience.

To help facilitate a better understanding of these tools and to bring Maine educators to the forefront of innovative education delivery the Maine Department of Education has invited organizations that are using virtual reality in education to come and demonstrate their education tools on June 19th at the Maine State Library.

There will be booths located throughout the atrium in the Maine State Library, as well as 30 minute presentations throughout the day from organizations, higher education partners and local schools who have already begun to integrate virtual reality into their classrooms. The intent of the day is to provide Maine educators with an awareness of these tools and to start encouraging innovative ideas on how we can integrate virtual reality into Maine classrooms.

Apple, Inc. Supports Autism Awareness Month

Tue, 04 Apr 2017 10:21:24 EDT

In honor of Autism Awareness Month, Apple is hosting a special session covering relevant topics in the field.

In the era of ever increasing screen time and Internet access, participants will explore digital citizenship as it relates to individuals with autism. Attendees will investigate Apple's supports for executive functioning, including incorporating Special Education "Self" words (self-determination, self-regulation, and self-monitoring). We'll uncover supports in the Special Education App Store and dive into Autism Podcasts to hear from leading experts on the topic. Participants will learn how to create customized visual cues for schedules, reinforcers and routines using Apple tools. We'll also discuss strategies for managing challenging behaviors and developing social emotional supports. Participants will explore flexible learning environments, brain breaks and sensory rooms. The day will focus on sharing strategies, successes and struggles as we work towards developing individualized solutions for our students with autism.

This event is intended for current MLTI participants. Please bring your MLTI devices and Apple ID.
