This webinar is part of the Spring 2017 ISTE Professional Learning Series. It aired on March 1, 2017 at 4 Pacific, 7 Eastern.

How many times are technology specialists asked to deliver professional development that focuses on functional skills? Is it the training your audience really needs? By focusing on audience needs and taking risks, we can transform typical requests into opportunities for personalized and interdepartmental collaboration. We’ll share a case study of a collaboration between the special education and technology departments.

Presented by the ISTE Inclusive Learning Network.
