This school year, MDE-LIO will partner with intermediate school districts (ISDs) in several regions across the state to host virtual “swap meets” for school personnel serving children or students who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing (DHH).
Each half-day regional event will consist of a presentation by MDE-LIO consultants, followed by a time for each attendee to “swap,” or share, an idea, resource, tool, or successful intervention used with students. Examples could include a time-management tool, an app, or a successful family event.
After the swap portion of the event, attendees will have time to share challenges and brainstorm solutions in small breakout groups. This will also help facilitate networking among school personnel in each region. All ideas will be captured and shared with attendees after each event.
