The pandemic has forced many shifts in teaching and learning. Remote and hybrid instruction has become more prevalent. How have you used Apple technology to facilitate these required shifts? Has this been an opportunity to build new strategies that will continue long after the pandemic? What have your challenges, solutions and successes been? Share your journey with us.
The iTeacher Inclusion category calls for teachers to demonstrate how you have consistently integrated Apple technology within their inclusive and accessible teaching and learning. This is not a single curriculum-based project but rather demonstrates an on-going process and approach of innovation when teaching students with any disabilities inclusing learning, neurodiverse, vision, hearing, physical and motor and anything inbetween. For example, making use of the iPad in remote therapy practices to develop skills.
