Technology is an integral part of our lives and has enhanced the quality of life for many of us. Assistive Technology creates equal opportunities and access for all learners including students with exceptionalities. In this course, the candidate will investigate the various devices and services available, but more importantly the candidate will develop a real world student-centered assistive technology program that can be applied in the classroom. As well as exploring the theoretical background and framework for understanding assistive technology, the candidate will extend and apply his/her knowledge of different high, mid and low tech devices and services and will reflect on the ethics and application of assistive technology in the classroom.
Learning activities in this course include:
exploring the theoretical background and frameworks for understanding assistive technology
extending and applying your knowledge of different high-tech, mid-tech, and low-tech devices and services
reflecting on the ethics and application of assistive technology in the classroom
thinking and writing critically about emerging trends in the field
exploring and reviewing assistive technology hardware and software
developing strategies for overcoming challenges related to assistive technology use
understanding the implications for assistive technology in assessment and evaluation practices
fostering discussion and collaboration with colleagues
