Technology for Applied Differentiation

My students need an iPad, audio splitter, and headphones for shared reading/listening activities.

My Students

My classes consist of students in grades 9-12, but ranging from ages 14-22. A typical day includes lessons in Science, History,Technology Applications, and Personal Life Skills-all modified to meet the learning needs of each student.

Some of the disabilities that I support include Autism, Intellectual Disabilities, and Other Health Impairment.

In supporting my students' needs, the iPad would help support academic activities, as well as vocational activities as they transition from grade school to real world.

My Project

For working on life skills, my students would use the iPad to work with interactive comprehension stories, and pictures representing answer choices. Non-verbal students can utilize picture symbols to communicate more effectively. Students could view their daily schedules by using picture symbols. In pairs, students can use the splitter to work with another student as they build their listening and fluency skills.

This would be our first classroom iPad and would expose my students to age-appropriate, hands-on activities.

The technology would increase opportunities for my students to listen to a variety of stories, lessons, and instruction that is more differentiated.
