Seedlings interviewed Joy Zabala and Cynthia Curry. They told us about Cast.org and all the work they are doing across the country. What a great show. If you are wondering how to get accessible materials into your classroom, check out this podcast. The resources are great. The show was great and the chat room came alive!
Join us as we discuss accessibility, Universal Design for Learning, Assistive Technology, and how the publishing industry, especially in the education sector needs to step to the plate and provide mulitple sources of accessibility for a variety of readers and disabilities.
Joy Zabala and Cynthia Curry take us on the journey of AIM and helping us understand how we can provide for our students. The recommendations in the chat will prove helpful. Check out aim.cast.org and the aim.mainecite.org
We had a fabulous show discussing UDL, Universal Design for Learning. We believe it is going to be the next best practice adopted by schools around the world. Cynthia Curry, an exceptional educator from Maine, led us through the discussion of how and why this is and should be the underpinning of all classrooms. Join us in the podcast and check out the chat.
One more SEEDLINGS show for this school season, then SEEDLINGS goes on hiatus for the summer season.
Join Bob and Cheryl while we interview Cynthia Curry, from Maine, as she leads us down the path using assistive technology tools in our classrooms as well as why we should all adopt Univeral Design for Learning as our best practice.
Here are the links from our Geek of the Week:
More importantly, here is the Chat which includes many more URLS from the participants in the chat room.
After which, you will want to listen to the SEEDLINGS show for October 2, 2008. Many of our Aussie friends were on break and joined in the conversation. We are hoping that soon there will be a webcast from Australia!
It really was an international show!
Join us on Thursdays at 19:30 GMT, we will be looking for you.

Join Alice, Bob and Cheryl as we chat with Jo McLeay about how her network has been creating a path for sustainability before and after the conference. A little while into the show Sue Tapp hopped into the chat room and then she joined the conversation. It was great to hear about how our friends in Australia are creating virtual spaces for conversations can happen before, during and after conferences. Jo gives some great advice for anyone attending NECC.
