Making a learning environment accessible for everyone is critical to a successful inclusive classroom. Today's classrooms are diverse and include English Language Learners and students with learning challenges, whether they have been identified or not. Every teacher needs to be able to create and deliver content in a way that is accessible to each individual student. Fortunately, teachers already have free technologies at their disposal to assist with this. Join us as we explore strategies and tools that facilitate an inclusive learning environment. Participants will: 1. Understand the importance of accessibility; 2. Explore Microsoft tools that can be used to create accessible materials; and 3. Identify an easy new habit, hack, and/or tool they can adopt to help make material accessible for their students. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.

tag(s): Accessibility (2), differentiation (53), Microsoft (42), Special Needs (33)

In the Classroom

Explore and learn about biomes through this interactive resource from the biologists at Arizona State University. Choose a particular biome to read and listen to information describing the definition and characteristics of the biome. The show/hide words portion of each section provides definitions of vocabulary included in each part of the site. Other information on the site includes worksheets and coloring pages to print.

tag(s): biomes (139), deserts (18), forests (33), oceans (165), rainforests (21), rivers (25), tundra (20)

In the Classroom

Have cooperative learning groups create podcasts describing each different biome using the scientist's audio from the site as a model. Use a site such as Podcast Generator, reviewed here. Have students use a mapping tool such as Zeemaps, reviewed here, to create a map of biomes from around the world (or country) with audio stories and pictures included!
 This resource requires PDF reader software like Adobe Acrobat.
