Reaching Students With Special Needs Through E-Learning This event is scheduled for Tuesday, September 20, 2011, 2:00p.m. to 3:00p.m. Eastern time.

Students with special learning needs often benefit from different and more personalized ways of mastering classroom material. More virtual education opportunities are now available to help meet the academic needs of children with cognitive or physical disabilities, those learning English, gifted and talented students, and those at risk of academic failure. Educators are trying to balance the potential of virtual learning with the need for face-to-face instruction for these groups of students. They are finding that assistive technologies, social-networking tools, and multimedia curricula are helping to build e-learning programs for students from special populations that can help improve academic achievement.
