      Posted by Melizza Cuizon on Thu, Nov 30, 2023

      December 2nd is National Special Education Day and it holds a special place in the hearts of educators and advocates alike. On this day in 1975, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) was signed into law, reaffirming the importance of inclusive education for students with special needs. As we commemorate this occasion, it's an opportune time to delve into its history, grasp its significance, and explore how technology, such as interactive displays and learning apps, plays a pivotal role in promoting inclusivity in today's classrooms.

      Two Models for Personalizing Learning

      Posted by Kelly Bielefeld on Thu, Jan 23, 2020
