The ITP Investigating Technology Practices

2
Key Points
  • Issues related to AT Use!
  • Universal Design for Learning is a Critical
    Ingredient in our Efforts for ALL Learners
  • Technology can enhance a an individuals quality
    of life!

3
Assistive Technology
  • The term "assistive technology device" means any
    item, piece of equipment, or product system,
    whether acquired commercially off the shelf,
    modified, or customized, that is used to
    increase, maintain, or improve functional
    capabilities of individuals with disabilities.

4
AT Facts
  • Assistive technology needs must be considered
    along with the child's other educational needs.
  • 2. Needs for technology must be identified on an
    individual basis.
  • 3. Identification of technology needs must
    involve family members and a multidisciplinary
    team.
  • 4. Parents or IEP members can ask for additional
    evaluation or an independent evaluation to
    determine assistive technology needs.

5
AT Facts Cont.
  • 5. When an evaluation is being conducted,
    consider fine-motor skills, communication, and
    alternatives to traditional learning approaches.
  • 6. Lack of availability of equipment or cost
    alone cannot be used as an excuse for denying an
    assistive technology service.
  • 7. If included in the IEP, assistive technology
    services and devices must be provided at no cost
    to the family and, if so indicated, devices must
    be allowed to go home with the student.
  • 8. Parents always have the right to appeal if
    assistive technology services are denied.

6
Considering AT
  • SETT Framework

  • WATI

7
Technology as part of the Solution
  • Universal Access

8
IDEA/NCLB UDL
  • IDEA - Access to general education educational
    opportunities
  • NCLB - Accountability based on student progress

9
Recognition Networks
  • Gathering facts. How we identify and categorize
    what we see, hear, and read. Identifying letters,
    words, or an author's style are recognition tasks
    the "what" of learning.

10
Strategic Networks
  • Planning and performing tasks. How we organize
    and express our ideas. Writing an essay or
    solving a math problem are strategic tasks the
    "how" of learning.

11
Affective Networks
  • How students are engaged and motivated. How they
    are challenged, excited, or interested. These are
    affective dimensions the "why" of learning.

12
Universal Design for Learning
  • Universal Design for Learning provides a
    framework for individualizing learning in a
    standards-based environment through flexible
    pedagogy and tools.

13
UDL History - Origins in Architecture
14
UDL Principles
  • UDL principles help educators customize their
    teaching for individual differences in each of
    these three brain networks. A universally-designed
    curriculum offers the following

15
Universal Design for Learning
  • Multiple means of representation to give learners
    various ways of acquiring information and
    knowledge

16
Universal Design for Learning
  • Multiple means of expression to provide learners
    alternatives for demonstrating what they know, and

17
Universal Design for Learning
  • Multiple means of engagement to tap into
    learners' interests, challenge them
    appropriately, and motivate them to learn

18
Principle One
  • Supporting Recognition Learning
  • Provide multiple examples
  • Highlight critical features
  • Provide multiple media formats
  • Support background contexts

19
Principle Two
  • Support Strategic Learning
  • Provide flexible models of skilled performance
  • Provide opportunities to practice with supports
  • Provide ongoing, relevant feedback
  • Offer flexible opportunities for demonstrating
    skill

20
Principle Three
  • Support Affective Learning - Provide alternative
    means for engagement
  • Offer choices of content and tools
  • Offer adjustable levels of challenge
  • Offer choices of rewards
  • Offer choices of learning context

21
Differentiating Writing
22
Inspiration
  • Inspiration, strengthens critical thinking,
    comprehension and writing across the curriculum.

23
Co Writer
  • Word Window integrates with any text application,
    moving along seamlessly as students write.
  • Word choices appear Always or only As Needed
  • Word Wall stimulates ideas and generates words
    related to a topic as students compose and revise

24
The Learning Toolbox
  • The instructional approach underlying the
    Learning Toolbox involves four components
  • assessment
  • strategy learning
  • course-specific instruction
  • systematic instruction

25
Differentiating Math
26
Building Conceptual Knowledge and Understanding
  • Teaching Enhanced Anchored Mathematics
  • Visual representation of math concepts
  • Apples iMovie
  • Allows user to develop engaging movies - Apple
    operating system.
  • Microsofts Movie Maker
  • Allows user to develop engaging movies - Windows
    operating system.
  • Google Video
  • Listing of featured videos for free download.

27
Building Problem Solving
  • Fraction of the Cost
  • Example of teaching enhanced anchored mathematics
  • Graphing Vector Calculator
  • Visual representation of graphing concepts
  • Mathematics Virtual Library
  • A resource list for mathematics supports across
    the grade and user level.

28
MathVids
  • Research based effective math instructional
    strategies
  • Detailed lesson plans with video based
    instructional models

29
