Inspiring

Julie Newman's curator insight, November 15, 2013 11:43 AM

I found this article very inspirational because it describes a teacher, Jane Good, who did not give up on her special needs students, as the school system was prior to her arrival. Before she came to her current school, her special needs students were placed in broken-down classrooms where they were given no attention and very low expectations. Good was able to guide her students in overcoming these obstacles with the help of a technology grant she received allowing her to supply everyone of her students with an iPad. These iPads allowed students to accomplish goals no one ever thought was possible for them. For example, one student who had never written before due to his lack of fine motor skills wrote his first word on the iPad. Similarly, three other students were able to learn to read though the iPad's stimulating and interactive features. After reading this article, I found that the iPad and other technologies truly helped children with special needs step outside the limitations previously established for them by the school system and make progress no one ever believed could be made. This alone shows me how powerful this tool can be in a special needs classroom. These students need to be stimulated through interactive learning and the iPad provides just that. I have found a lot of research that agrees with this article and proves that technology is a necessity in the special needs classroom.

You're right Kelly, and parents, school and teachers have a key role in digital litteracy !

SSIGH... and THAT is the problem. How do you know your students are using tech devices for learning as opposed to sending text messages or chatting on facebook...
Minter Dial's comment, July 28, 2013 2:28 AM
Hi @Kelly, @David and @Ilana. It's a major battle. What techniques have you used? I've tried a few things with some success, but it depends on the student profiles...: (a) have a Twitter wall where the interaction can be public ; (b) have no-device moments (c) warn that anything on their screen can be shared in public (if I find it).

Everyone is afraid of getting up on stage and giving a speech or what ever they need to do in front of an audience. These kind of tips are helpful in every way possible especially when someone is nervous. Knowing that we need to just breathe is an important thing. These skills can allow us to get better in our presentations.
