2013 Virtual TechKnowledgy Conference- Archived Video & Handouts from Digital Print Plus MS Word Equals Access…a Winning Equation


Have you heard the word about MSWord? Did you know that you can adjust the cognitive difficulty of print information to provide multiple means of representation, action and expression, and engagement using MS Word and free Internet downloads? Awesome, right? The tools in MS Word plus the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) equals access to knowledge. But wait, there’s more! Using a process called "cognitive rescaling" (Edyburn, 2002) and flexible digital technologies, you can change digital text to engage and support students. Say goodbye to "one-size-fits-all" print resources and hello to access by providing the scaffolds needed to make print information easier to understand by using common features of Microsoft Office in uncommon ways. Note: You will need to sign in to your TTAC Online Account to access this Archived Video, Handouts and Resources.
