Great video and insight; Assistive Technology and

Educational Technology is supporting all students as well as adults, but certainly offering significant support to those who have disabilities, or are naturally losing abilities due to aging or injury. Assistive Technology levels the playing field, and makes things possible that were otherwise impossible, or makes things easier that were previously so difficult. It levels the playing field. More importantly, AT and Ed Tech are helping our students to access education and employment individually, successfully, and to Compete Globally in the workforce. It is simply absurd to keep students behind by withholding technology supports, and keep them from learning new skills or knowledge in the best possible and accessible format, or to keep them from reaching their peak potential. When they get into "the real world," they can choose any phone, any tablet, any computer, any technology to help them succeed, and compete against other students who are using technology daily to be employed, or even just to access their community and home. How are we supporting our students to be successful in the future? Hopefully not by telling them that technology is cheating or unfair, but rather seeing the potential it offers them. So many assistive technology options are low cost or free now as well, the old excuses and fears need to be left behind.

Patricia Schachtner's curator insight, March 25, 2014 2:18 PM

This video really helped to expand my understanding of the importance of AT in schools.

Great apps for student's with disabilities.  

Jane Strunck's curator insight, May 12, 2013 9:44 PM

Consider usefulness of an app according to learner preferences and strengths, educational goal and characteristics of the app itself. 

 

Blaine Morrow's curator insight, May 13, 2013 11:22 AM

"Samantha Thomas, a student, future librarian, and educator at Kutztown University, created this handycollection of assistive technologies that you may find helpful. Some are commonly used with special needs individuals, such as augmentative & alternative communication apps like My Pictures Talk,Look2Learn, and iTalk. Others are general consumer apps, such as Evernote, Google Earth, andAudacity."

This is great, there are many excellent apps for so many subjects/ skills/ features/ assignments/ lessons etc. in general and special education. It would be great if there was a way for teachers to add/ recommend apps as well as other professionals. I provide training on apps and have SO many to add to this list!

Linda Wallin's curator insight, January 17, 2014 10:05 PM

I am familiar with pages, keynote, numbers, notability, evernote, dropbox, annotate pdf, pbs, and edmodo. Look for videos on YouTube to see how they work.

I am always interested in applications/extensions that can be "mainstreamed" into existing technology at little or no cost.  This provides a seamless strategic environment for an accademic settng or the workplace.

Great to see more teacher research validating what I already know: in the hands of a competent pedagogue, solid on their content, iPads make a tremendous difference for all learners by differentiating instruction.

We believe that it is more important to focus on the person who will be using the technology, rather than the device itself. We assume that you are here because you want to improve a skill or creatively compensate for a deficit that may be preventing a person with a disability from maximizing their highest potential.
