Adapted Learning

I hope you all know about the wonderful Boardmaker sharing resource Adapted Learning. Adapted Learning lets everyone who uses Boardmaker share what they make. In doing so we reduce the work load for everyone. Just this week I logged on and found a fantastic activity about dressing for the weather. Some of my students are struggling with the concept of hot vs. cold and this was just the thing. I downloaded it and made some changes for low vision and voila I had a lesson ready to go!

However I am a little worried when the "Site Activity in the Past Week" section of Adapted Learning's newsletter says "O" for New Messages, Files and Articles. I know we are all busy, but I also know we are all making new things all the time. It only takes a minute to upload something, so why not go ahead and do it? Even if you think you are too new to teacher/SLP/being a para/using Boardmaker, share with all of us. You might be surprised at home much value your activity has for all of us!

  1. Kate,

    Sorry for the confusion. That digest you received had an error in it last week that has since been resolved. There were actually 37 new files posted, 734 new members, and 3 new discussion posts. Over the weekend we were switching over to a new digest format that sends a thumbnail of each of the newly posted items and it had a few issues. Glad to see the community so actively sharing their work. Thanks for encouraging sharing. It really is a huge time-saver for everyone.
