The SAMR Model In 120 Seconds - teachthought

The SAMR Model In 120 Seconds - teachthought | ICT with Special Educaiton Needs (Intellectual Disability) | Scoop.it
This is not a post about the SAMR model (a way of thinking about how to teach with technology that uses an acronym as a mnemonic device)–well, not in any way that’s going to further the conversation around it, or push your thinking about the ins and outs of using it.

In December, we shared a post that used Starbucks as an analogy to illustrate the SAMR model. We also shared a post about using the SAMR model for more effective teaching with apps. We’ve even offered a kind of alternative to the SAMR model with our Stages of #edtech Disruption.

So why share a simple video of the same model we’ve already covered in more detail elsewhere? Because, in lieu of the slightly murky analogy involing cheese and tennis balls, the video does a pretty good job of explaining the idea in less time than it takes to watch Apple make another $18-billion-of-profits-in-a-single-quarter announcement.

The concept of special education

The concept of special education | ICT with Special Educaiton Needs (Intellectual Disability) | Scoop.it
Special education teachers teach students who have physical or mental disabilities and thus have special needs.

 

Special education teachers teach students who have physical or mental disabilities and thus have special needs. They are a lifeline to children with special needs since children with special needs are constrained in their learning process because of their disabilities. It is just because of the special education teachers that they acquire the basic skills in education and life overall, and may learn to live independently. Special education teachers adapt the general education curriculum to suit the unique needs of each student. 

 

Thus, special education is a lifeline for those students who have special needs. They personally take care of the special needs of the students by modifying or changing the curriculum accordingly to the extent of disability, wether mild or moderate. With students having severe disabilities, they tend to teach such students basic skills so that students with disabilities can lead their lives independently and teach them basiccommunication skills and mathematics. 

Special education teacher assess the strengths and needs of each student and set their teaching goals accordingly. They help develop Individualized Education Programs (IEPs), which outlines the kind of education each student with special needs will receive. Special education teachers need to be calm, patient, organized, inspiring and accepting. Special education students can come with a varying degree of disabilities and from various backgrounds.

Special education teachers, hence, have to be understanding and have very effective communication skills, as special education students have difficulty in conveying their needs and ideas. Special education teachers help the students with special needs to feel comfortable in social situations and be aware of socially acceptable behaviour. 

Preparing the special education students for life after school is an important part of the work of special education teachers as they teach their students some basic skills which help them to live independently. Thus, special education teachers are doing a great service to the nation by catering to the needs of students with disabilities and help them live a near normal and dignified life.

It is great to have special education teachers and you can't thank them enough for the job they do in turning around somebody's life. Education is a big part of kid's future, and special education teachers give everyone a fair chance to succeed in life.

Luke French's comment, May 11, 2014 9:07 PM
Special education teachers are, as Michael said, invaluable. These teachers make nigh-unfathomable differences in these children's lives, and, in my opinion, do not receive due credit.

ICTs in Education for People with Disabilities - Review of Innovative Practice

ICTs in Education for People with Disabilities - Review of Innovative Practice | ICT with Special Educaiton Needs (Intellectual Disability) | Scoop.it

In 2010, the UNESCO Institute for Information Technologies in Education (UNESCO IITE) and the European Agency for Development in Special Needs Education agreed to collaborate on a joint project to develop a Review of Innovative Practice – a report presenting concrete examples of practice of the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) with people with disabilities in different educational contexts and settings. In particular, the Review was targeted at considering examples of practice that can be considered to be ‘innovative’ within the specific educational setting and wider societal context they were situated within.

Fadzilah Abdul Rahman's curator insight, March 4, 2014 6:51 PM

I think one of the first tip is, don't be afraid as technology is always going to change. If you have access to technology, just get in the classroom and use it. The children will help you, should you get stuck. It's an incredible learning experience for both, the teachers and the students. It's about building a community of learners!
