Have students write a collaborative poem or story using Twitter, IM, Edmodo or Facebook. This way, authors can contribute one word, one line, or several paragraphs.

This website is dedicated to promoting inclusive schooling and exploring positive ways of supporting students with autism and other disabilities. Most of my work involves collaborating with schools to create environments, lessons, and experiences that are inclusive, respectful, and accessible for all learners.

WEBSITE WEDNESDAY: Ollibean

Posted on October 10, 2012 in Families, Inclusion, News

If you are at all plugged into inclusion-related websites, Facebook pages, or tweets, you have probably already heard about Ollibean. This is a fun site filled with articles, links, and cool video clips. Its mission is to connect families, self-advocates, & professionals to one another “to help create online and offline communities…, to share stories and to work together”.

If you need more motivation to visit the site, you can read all about the “I Stand with Henry” campaign at Ollibean. Henry wants to attend his home school (200 yards from his home) and his district won’t allow him to do so. They are insisting he attend a specialized program for students with disabilities instead. So, he is using this site, Facebook, and other social media tools to get his message out. His parents, the creators of Ollibean, have joined him in these efforts. Join them today on either Ollibean or on the related Facebook page and become part of the movement!
