It is important both AT and services because while it is good for the student to have the device, if the student does not know how to use it nor do the people in setting that help implement the AT device it is not going to work for well for student. All parties must be involved in learning to use the device efficiently and monitor the progress of the student with the device. 4. Describe three responsibilities of the Implementation
For example, teachers did not put enough effort to help children who are slow learners. The children were looked as incapable of learning. Therefore, .Assistive technology helps disabled student’s to obtain social skills and interaction. This can help enhance their learning development .Also, assistive technology helps disabled children to not depend on others. The author explains how assistive technology programs have increased disabled students participation in classrooms.
Classroom Observation Reflection Abrar Hilal University of Oklahoma Tuesday, February 12 Classroom Observation Reflection Special Education Classroom Report The special education classroom that I observed, included the main teacher, two teacher assistants, and ten students with Developmental Delays. The main teacher uses technology to aid the students to learn easy and faster. A smart board is present in the classroom, but the teacher doesn 't use it often as she prefers to use her own handouts and her specially created activities. I think this is effective as she can modify activities better and so that the students benefit from that personalized touch.
She wrote articles about special education, and mental health problems and solutions. She used her own experience to show that assistive technology is a good resource for students who face challenges in their daily life. Assistive technology has helped her become successful by allowing her to continue with her studies. She shows us that she didn’t give up and found alternatives in order to keep attending school.
We also know that today's new technologies offer the prospect of individualizing education for each child and gearing instruction to the student's particular learning style and most effective means of instruction. We have learned so much about education since today's schools were created. With this new found information we need to use it and create building blocks for our future generations. One which encourages our children to be the best they can
D4: Data-Based Practice or Assistive Technology Tool 1. Have you ever known anybody with a speech and or language impairment? Not that I can recall. What challenges did he/she face? N/A Think about famous people that possess a speech and language impairment.
In the article Making Technology Inclusive, Martin Horejsi gives different examples on how to include all students, specially the ones with disabilities, in activities guided by technology. In this sense, he believes that technology can assist children with different disabilities to perform tasks in the classroom helping them feel included socially, as well as giving these children the extra support they need to learn. Horejsi mentions that there are many great technologies out there, but many of them are out of reach for teachers because of their high prices. However, Horejsi comes up with cheaper and still successful ideas to use technology in the classroom to aid students with disabilities. He mentions that even simple steps such as changing
“In the article Technology in the Classroom: It 's Not a Matter of ‘If’, but ‘When’ and ‘How’” Alice Armstrong describes how the different types of the technology is helping kids learn in school. This articles suggest that when technology is present in the classroom students who use the devices are more likely to be interested in STEMM classes. If students become more interested in STEMM than they have a chance to have better jobs and have a better. Alice says how students who use technological devices in classrooms are more interested in math and science.
Why is it important that students with disabilities have access to the general education curriculum? What are some ways to help these students to access the general education curriculum? If students are limited to only a resource room for their educational experience they run the risk of receiving a narrowed curriculum reduced to practice of individual skills. Exclusion from general education classrooms may also result in lowered expectations because students are not exposed to peers with skills that they are working towards learning.
In the classroom, technology can encompass all kinds of tools from low-tech pencil, paper, and chalkboard, to the use of presentation software, or high-tech tablets, online collaboration and conferencing tools, and more. The newest technologies allow us to try things in physical and virtual classrooms that were not possible before. Today, I cannot imagine how difficult it is to teach without technology and how hard it is to learn without it. Technology plays a major part in our lives as students.
Making content accessible for all students can be a difficult task. Classrooms are filled with diverse learners from all different backgrounds with different strengths, needs, home languages and learning styles. This is particularly true in a moderate to severe special education classrooms where students have varying levels of academic, developmental, communication and social abilities. Over the course of my teaching career and my time at Brandman I have learned valuable ways of engaging and supporting all students’ in the classroom.
IDEA OR PRACTICE BEING USED: The district worked collaboratively with teachers to develop personalized learning for all educators to help with using new technology in their classroom. Educators were given an opportunity to teach learning sessions about something they feel they do well or choose learning sessions relevant to where they were with the ease of using technology using the SAMR model. Teachers could also create a TEPS project that involves exploring an educational project that can improve the classroom, and they earn graduate hours. Domain and Understanding that the ideas addresses: Domain III: Systems for Capacity Building Understanding: 0005 Understand how to use professional development for staff, faculty, and self, to promote lifelong learning and the success of all student
Teacher technology support within the XYZ school district is essential to integrate available technology tools into the curriculum effectively (Helms, 2014). While this school district is making considerable progress in incorporating technological resources within the curriculum effectively, a need exists for further development in leveraging technology within the curriculum (GaDOE, 2008). In 21st Century classrooms, electronic hardware and software can support numerous resources for differentiated lessons to students with access to these resources
Here technology comes handy. It not only makes information more accessible but also eases the knowledge sharing and generation without regard to time and geographical boundaries Technology is not only transforming the way we live but also the way we behave, how we interpret ourselves as a person, friend, group member, employee and citizen. For example, people today are trying to find solutions to difficult questions in life through websites like qoura by answers from other people who come form variety of backgrounds from all over the world.
