A few years ago I met Alex at an ISTE Conference and want to say that she has a wealth of experience and knowledge in using tools with diverse learners. Alex is  a speech language pathologist with the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) and she will be sharing both UDL strategies and iPad apps that are engaging for ALL students. She will also introduce class profiling as a valuable strategy for teachers.


Don't miss this webinar as you will walk away with ideas that you can use in your classroom tomorrow!
