"Confronting Ableism"

Anyone out there read this article?  The ideal educational setting would use the strengths of Learners with challenges to teach to and adapt programs for those Learners rather than trying to "fix the problem"...A very thought provoking article.

Hello all,

My name is Dan Gillmor and I am a SH humanities teacher in northern Alberta. I am currently working on developing meaningful ways to engage my students using 21st C. practices. I look forward to conversations that take place along these lines as well as any others regarding the practice of education in Canada.

Hello Fellow Educators.  I'm a Learning Assistance Teacher in Delta.  I'm excited about collaborating with Teachers in my school and working hard to try and make School Based Team meetings a valuable use of time. UDL, simple action plans where everyone has a role in support and follow-up discussions seems to be working so far.  I'd love to hear about other schools' SBT meetings, how they work for you, ideas/activities that you value or anything else to do with support systems in your schools. :D

Hi Nancy, I'm completing the SFU TLTC Coquitlam!  Happy inquiring!

I'll look through my Diigo kellyjensen and find some resources.  But my fav is simply Etherpad.  Great opportunities for AFL practice.

Best of luck.

There are so many outstanding, free Web2.0 applications that are perfect for writing exercises in primary grades.  Some of the best I've seen are: kidblog.orgstoryjumper.comstorybird.com/teachers/zooburst.com/

myfakewall.com/xtranormal.com/edu.glogster.com/ 

and audacity.sourceforge.net/ (great free audio editor for podcasts)

I'm a gr.4/5 teacher working in Maple Ridge, BC.  I'm in the Teaching and Learning in Today's Classroom module in Maple Ridge.  My field study this term will be looking at how I can use technology to meet my learning goals for writing.  I'd love to hear about how others have used technology in Writer's Workshop!
