It can also help alleviate some of the frustration that disabled students feel and reinforce positive learning behaviors. Attendees learned about several technologies that will considerably increase the engagement of students with disabilities and other challenging learners. This webinar explored several online student response systems. Some of these programs were Kahoot!, Socrative, Quizlet, and Plickers.
