The mATch up Tool provides information on low, mid, and high tech devices for meeting the unique needs of students. The tool was designed with a variety of users in mind – teachers, parents, administrators, and in some cases, students themselves. The idea is to provide a handy, ready-access way of gathering information on tools that might help open access to academic and non-academic settings.Discover the tools that support students in reading, writing, communication, organization, etc.

Educating for the Unknown: Universal Design for Learning and the Arts

Educating for the Unknown: Universal Design for Learning and the Arts | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

Dr. Magee offers a thoughtful insight on UDL and the arts and how we could harness technology and the arts to help solve the dropout epidemic in the US.  "Universal Design for Learning offers foundational tenets for truly egalitarian education where no one is marginalized by being labeled as having “special needs or exceptional needs” rather, UDL widens the circle so that every learner is considered unique and has a full compliment of accommodations offered to them to support a holistic educational experience. Accommodations become invisible, embedded in the classroom and integrated into the way we teach and learn."

16 Apps for Elementary Students with Non-Verbal Learning Disability

16 Apps for Elementary Students with Non-Verbal Learning Disability | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

In this post, 16 Apps for Elementary Students with Non-Verbal Learning Disability (NVLD) are examined. New apps on the iPad can assist students with remediation as well. While apps are not as advanced as specialized software right now in terms of full support for specific academic skills, they are improving. Most apps that have been developed to date focus on the remediation aspect and not support. There are huge advantages to using an app for remediation or to bypass the challenges associated with NVLD on the iPad: the ability to manipulate the information on the screen, high level of engagement, mobility, and full interactivity. Here are our recommendations for apps for elementary students that have difficulty with the above-mentioned areas."

Glad to see that there's an app for that - going the extra mile for our students who struggle with their learning should not be impeded by our lack of research! There are a number of very valuable links here:

Texas District Finds Support for UDL and RTI Programs | eSchool News

The primary focus for North East’s Atomic Learning training is on special education teachers. But when there is a general ed student who is having difficulties, or has identified the need for special support, Terri and her team are able to quickly send a link to the special ed and general ed teacher on the necessary training, and the problem is addressed. It helps the Assistive Technology team focus on other projects. Learn more about the North East ISD story; download the full case study at http://al.atomiclearning.com/northeast

iOS 5 features a new resource called Assistive Touch. It essentially streamlines more than 20 of the most-used processes for the device.It can help you do just about anything from having a custom lock screen to creating custom gestures that help you send mail.

I suggest you check it out even if you may not think you’d benefit as it could actually help just about anyone looking to customize their experience a bit.

Reaching Students With Special Needs Through E-Learning

Students with special learning needs often benefit from different and more personalized ways of mastering classroom material. More virtual education opportunities are now available to help meet the academic needs of children with cognitive or physical disabilities, those learning English, gifted and talented students, and those at risk of academic failure. Educators are trying to balance the potential of virtual learning with the need for face-to-face instruction for these groups of students. They are finding that assistive technologies, social-networking tools, and multimedia curricula are helping to build e-learning programs for students from special populations that can help improve academic achievement.
