Join Mary Judge, Assistant Director for the Institute for Innovative Transition, and Nick Palumbo, a Graduate Assistant for the Institute for Innovative Transition, as they present a webinar on the EnvisionIT web-based curriculum in New York State. This online high school curriculum teaches students skills in four core competency areas: information technology (IT) literacy, transition planning, financial literacy, and reading/writing. Despite the emphasis on higher academic standards and transition services, many students with disabilities continue to leave school lacking these skills. EnvisionIT, which was designed for inclusive classrooms will prepare students both with and without disabilities for successful completion of high school as well as help boost students’ college and career readiness skills. EnvisionIT, which is being tested in classrooms across Ohio and Michigan, is funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s National Grants program.

 

This webinar will provide an overall background on EIT in NYS, a brief walk-through of the curriculum, and a primer on the learning management system (LMS) used by EIT. The webinar will also address modifying the curriculum and the individualized transition portfolio created throughout the course.
