Reflecting on my experience in this course, I learned some valuable information and tools that I feel will be beneficial as I continue my path towards getting a degree in Special Education. I feel that I still have some ways to go to feel absolutely comfortable in designing IEP documents and meetings. Creating learning objectives connected to the Nebraska State Standards were a challenge but also a beneficial learning experience for me. I found it to be great practice to find connections between the standards and learning objectives I wanted the student to accomplish. I find it to be really important to think about what tools students bring to the table while also considering what challenges could create valuable learning opportunities for the student. I found it beneficial to reflect with other …show more content…
Example: When I first read about task analytic, I was confused on the idea. It sounded very similar to the Discrete Trial Training. After participating in the video chat, I was able to decipher the difference. Discrete Trial Training uses a response prompt, model, response reinforcement tool. Task Analytic uses fading processes of prompts that will lead the student to becoming independent as the task is being taught. I really enjoyed have PowerPoint, PowToons, or other technology presentations that further explain the concept being discussed in the book. I am a visual learner and I feel the presentations really helped keep my focus centered on the topic and clarified any questions that I still had after reading the chapters from the modules. Some challenges I faced from this course were the demonstrations. I wanted to be able to explain my presentation in a clear and precise way. However, I was not always sure if I was headed in the right direction or if I explained my thinking in enough depth required for the

Unit 5’s reading section covers the various features and tools available in Microsoft’s Powerpoint application (Gambrel, 2014). The first part I found helpful was the section that taught how to create a new presentation. This taught me several things about Powerpoint including how to add, delete, and organize slides. I have used Powerpoint in the past, but everything I know about it is self-taught, so it was good to have an actual training that covered everything from scratch.
In my opinion, the supplemental videos provided in these chapters were very interesting. First, there is the Erie Canal Documentary. I enjoyed learning about the construction of the Erie Canal and its influence back then. What surprised me the most was the fact that the canal engineers were not actually trained as engineers, but they still were up to the task of designing and building the canal, very impressive of them!
The tension between what is appropriate can cause stress on the relationships of the IEP team members (Freedman, 2012). There are many different point-of-view who provide their ideas of what is appropriate for each child. To help rectify this long lasting concern is to find a common definition between IEP members of FAPE. In addition, it is important to hear both side of the argument. I would allow both side to discuss why they believe something is in favor of the child’s FAPE or not.
The Common Core state standard used through this learning segment is 8.EE.A.4: Perform operations with numbers expressed in scientific notation, including problems where both decimal and scientific notation are used. Use scientific notation and choose units of appropriate size for measurements of very large or very small quantities (e.g., use millimeters per year for seafloor spreading). Interpret scientific notation that has been generated by technology. For this learning segment, we will only be covering the first part of the standard where students will be performing operations in scientific notation. This standard addresses conceptual understanding because students must understand the meaning of scientific notation in order to perform operations
The ISTE and Missouri learning Standards influence education in a variety of ways across the United States. The technology programs is based on the standards developed by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). ISTE is an association devoted in educating teachers and administrators on how to add technology successfully for quality student learning and teaching practices. The ISTE Standards serve as an encouragement for students and educators as they navigate the digital world. So, the ISTE standards for student provide guidelines for students and what they should know about technology how they use it.
It was discovered that in education there were certain areas that were universal and common among learning. The two main subjects of concern were English language arts and mathematics. Common core is the new curriculum implemented now in school systems to develop learning. Common Core Standards are a clear set of shared goals and expectations for the knowledge and skills students need in English language arts and mathematics at each grade level so they can be prepared to succeed in college, career, and life. Although, Common Core seems to be here to stay this article addresses concerns in reference to content, instruction, and assessment.
As a Special Education Teacher, I am committed to working with children who have challenging behaviors. My objective is to help students develop self-regulating skills and to be able to function as part of a group. I believe that every child should be given the opportunity to achieve their maximum potential of communication and functional independence in order to build self-esteem and self-awareness. Through the mastering of these essential skills, a student will gain the ability to reach their fullest potential in all aspects of their lives. My overall goal is to make difference in the lives of my students by providing an educational program that will maximize the abilities of my students and prepare them for a more independent setting to
For this outcome I chose the CE 240 Unit 6 assigment. With this artifact a demonstrate my knowledge of appropriate observational and assessment techniques and planning for children and their families. I chose this artifact because it shows how I will prepare and plan for children with a specific disability. In this assignment I demonstrate my ability to arrange the learning environment to encourage children with specific needs to reach their learning goals. Observation is one of the most vital skill for early childhood educator.
Alicia Wilson is and special education teacher that I have known for a year through subbing in the Parkway School District here in St. Louis, MO. She is the lead teacher for all of the staff that services special needs students at Shenandoah Elementary. Her duties not only include supervising those teachers but also leading IEP meeting and communicating plans for special needs children. Starting off my questions, Wilson described a stakeholder during an IEP meeting are the people that fill the room. This group includes the school administration, parents, the school board of education, teachers, and even the student themselves.
A student in my third grade class has a scheduled IEP coming up to address his mild hearing disability. As an integral part of the IEP team I will make it a priority that I document his strengths and areas for improvements when in my classroom. I will also make sure to communicate with other faculty that has him at various times to see what they have observed or noticed. Lastly, I will make sure to bring data that I have collected regarding his capabilities and have he has be doing in class as well as his attendance. It is always important to consider the following before making any recommendations to the IEP team; review the effectiveness of past interventions and current interventions in place, the educational history of the student, behavior
Every student with disabilities is also obligated to an IEP specifically for the student’s needs between the ages of 3 and 21 under IDEA. The IEP is created by a team of six or seven, depending on the age of the student. The six members are the parents, an individual that can explain the assessment results, keep in mind, the faculty of the school must not under any circumstances conduct the evaluations without parental consent. Also included is the general education teacher, a local representative from the local education department, the special education teacher and of course the student, who must be included in the meeting if the student is fourteen or older. In this IEP meeting the team members go over what has been planned for the IEP
Furthermore, the community will have a chance as well to be involved at the workshop and gain a better understanding of the technological advances that have been made over the years. For many teachers and students, technology is not their strong point and they tend to stray away from those courses that require interacting with technology. Many online courses are offered at Fresno State, but many students tend to shy away from them because they are unfamiliar with the technology nowadays. With these workshops, students and faculty will be able to get a grasp on how to use a laptop, iPad, tablet, etc. in their designated courses.
ECE 280 Inclusion of Children with Special Needs Learning Module 2 Engage and Learn Requirements: 1. For this assignment you will interview someone who assesses the development of infants or toddlers ( birth through 3 years of age) This could be a pediatrician, an occupational therapist, a speech and language pathologists, an early interventionist ( someone who works for the Division of Developmental Disabilities or AzEIP), a social worker or family support specialist(someone who works for the Department of Economic Security(DES), Child Protective Services (CPS), etc) , a nurse or early childhood teacher. Ask them to respond to the following questions: • What is your role? Explain the work that you do.
My initial goal of getting into the Masters of Art in Education Technology Program (MAET) and working towards a master's degree was to use technology to prepare students for 21st century learning skills. These 21st century skills are the learning, literacy, and life skills necessary for students to possess and use in the future job world. I presented a PowToons for my admittance application to Michigan State University as a way to explain my goals. Another goal I expressed in the video was how I wanted to prepare my students to use technology as a way to solve problems with others, communicate verbally, and follow instructions independently. This goal was created specifically to better prepare students with disabilities to be successful in the future job force and as a member of society.
