The Early Literacy Shift: New Words, New Media, New Friends

The Early Literacy Shift: New Words, New Media, New Friends | Special Education News | Scoop.it

And when I had to explain why iPod didn’t start with an upper case letter the way proper nouns usually did, well, I decided all of the rules were up for grabs. The changes I have mentioned are rather superficial, but they are indicators of a large shift that has been taking place in the way that I teach literacy.

Having students use technology in many different ways is a great idea. My children enjoy being able to video chat and skype with their daddy because he is overseas, and they study different words or lessons that they are going over to not only keep him involved but also so they can have the experience of having their daddy help them with school work as well.

Special Education 101 (Infographic)

Special Education 101 (Infographic) | Special Education News | Scoop.it

An overview of Special Education that helps to define the term special education, looks at types of special needs, the percentage of students who receive special education services, and much more. In this infographic special education is defined as "specially designed instruction to meet the unique needs of a child with a disability."

Today one of the buzzwords in education is personalized learning. As our classrooms move towards this goal it is important to recognize how technology may impact both our special education and our regular education students.

I scooped this info graph to demonstrate to teachers to prominences of the various types impairments in the 21st century. I beleive this is an important issue as teachers need to know as classrooms today are having students with some type of disability or impairemnt. Teachers need accomodate and differentiate the types of ICT skills and devices used within the classroom. The aim of technolgies within the classroom is to allow students to engage confidently with technologies and make informed, ethical and sustainable decisions about technologies for preferred futures including personal health andwellbeing, recreation, everyday life, the world of work and enterprise, and the environment (ACARA, 2013).
