Instructional Strategies:
Universal Design for Learning-Interactive Notetaking & Oral Presentation
I have two Study Skills classes. One class has 17 students. The other class has 13 students. The request is for 17 laptops with the hopes that they can be used between classes whereas the Flash/USB drives needs to be per student. Additionally, while my school has access the laptops, they are poorly maintained and we don't have enough per teacher per class.
