Teaching Students with Autism about Digital Citizenship

Monday, January 16, 2017 - 1:00-2:00 pm PST

Most educators realize the importance of teaching digital citizenship to all students, but students with autism face unique challenges. Join Instructional Technology Specialist Jennifer Liang to learn how to differentiate digital citizenship for students with autism.  Jennifer will share the strategies she uses leading the digital citizenship efforts at Cumberland Academy, an independent school that serves students with autism and other neurobehavioral differences.

In this webinar, Jennifer will tackle these issues around teaching digital citizenship to students with autism:

  • What are the unique challenges for students with autism as it relates to media and technology use
  • How can educators draw on the abilities of these students – such as attention to detail, appreciation for rules, and a strong sense of fairness – and draw on those strengths to make connections to digital citizenship?
  • What can educators do to support parents and caregivers of students with autism and make a strong home-school connection with them?

All educators and administrators are invited to this live, interactive event. There will be time for Jennifer to answer your questions after her presentation.
