AT presents OneNote pilot at Leading and Learning through Technology




The senior staff of the TDSB's Assistive Technology team presented at The Learning Partnership's Leading Learning through Technology Spring mini Summit last week. The presentation entitled: Education for All - Individualizing Student Support Through Technology focused on the A.T. team's OneNote pilot project, which has been concentrating on using the OneNote software to support transitions and organization in special education Intermediate students. While the A.T. team's presentation started off the day, the entire day's program concentrated on having educators and Boards share "evidence-based practices which enhance student engagement and achievement".
