Advanced technologies play an essential role in students' learning. Each student has an iPad, SMART Boards are in every classroom, and a diverse range of assistive and educational technologies allow students to access the curriculum and support an equally diverse range of learning styles.
Learning differences vary, requiring an individualized learning program for each student. When students understand how they learn, they develop strategies to compensate for weaknesses and take pride in their strengths.
