Project

Implementing Assistive Technology Strategies for Appropriate and Effective Use

As technology becomes integrated and implemented within school curriculum, there is a constant need to understand the technology that is introduced to the classroom environment and how it can be used to help a student achieve their academic goals. Students with physical disabilities sometimes need assistance from technology to be able to achieve those goals but need proper guidance to increase their ability to effectively and appropriately use that assistive technology device and/or service. In this project, a pamphlet was designed to help provide a resource for educators’ strategies on how to ensure that their students are effectively and appropriately assigned assistive technology devices and/or service. There are various assistive technology software and hardware that can be beneficial for students with physical disabilities, especially when an educator spends time with familiarizing and learning the assistive technology that their students use. The pages of the pamphlet are showcased in this project, detailing steps on tracking assistive technology implementation as well as supply knowledge on resource sites and a few assistive technology devices that educators may encounter. After designing and creating the pamphlet, while still providing knowledge for readers about assistive technology and how to ensure effective and appropriate use of the device and/or service, there was a limited amount of space to ensure that the knowledge is enough to interest educators in the topic of assistive technology
