Teaching All Students: Apps by Mayer-Johnson - I'm disappointed...

"I am a very heavy Mayer-Johnson product user. I have and use Boardmaker Plus on a daily basis in the classroom (and have for years). I have several other products/devices in my classroom that I use on a regular basis, and I'm a fan of the new Boardmaker Studio (even though I don't have it). That being said, I'm disappointed in the latest news from Mayer-Johnson."

Steven Blomdale's curator insight, March 9, 2013 12:28 AM

Students with disabilities and impairments can develop critical general capabilities components such as personal and social capabilities (PSC). This can be achieved through digital technologies. Special education teachers can implement augmentative and alternative communication (AAC). This includes all forms of communication (other than oral speech) that are used to express thoughts, needs, wants, and ideas (ASHA, 2013).  This would assist non-verbal students to develop personal and social capability (PSC) as they learn to understand themselves and others, and manage their lives, work and learning more effectively (ACARA, 2013). Consequently the capability involves students in a range of practices including recognising and regulating emotions and understanding others (ACARA. 2013).
