Late, Lost, and Anxious! – Technology to Support Executive Function
Students nowadays are confronting significantly greater levels of stress and anxiety than ever before. Often times, this stress occurs alongside executive function and attentional difficulties that make it difficult for the student to manage increasing academic demands. In this workshop, we will discuss how executive function, attention, and stress intersect and ultimately impact a student’s academic motivation. We will then discuss assistive technology as a tool to support these challenges, addressing how to identify appropriate supports and how to develop an effective plan for their implementation.
At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Define and understand executive function as a complex set of self-regulation skills
- Understand how attention and anxiety intersect with executive function, resulting in motivation
- Identify 3 factors necessary to effectively implement an assistive technology plan
- Describe key features of assistive technology needed for executive functioning
4.5 continuing education credits or professional development units will be offered for this workshop.
