My Students

Have you ever seen a student try to share a project using poster paper. They hold it to their face and you can't hear nor see them while presenting. An LCD can give them access to present or see my presentation without any distraction.

I teach 4 very enthusiastic groups of special education students.

Each student has their own individual needs but commonly have a love for technology. I find that anything they can capture visually engages them the most. The students are a lot more engaged than typical students now that I have incorporated more technology in the classroom. They are motivated and take responsibility for a lot of their learning with interventions and directions only made by me.

My Project

I have started using youtube videos, DVDs and clips to introduce and supplement lessons in both science and English. The students are also expected to complete their individual projects and present. Although they are motivated to prepare and present, it would make it more efficient if students had a means to present their projects via inspiration, power point and prezzie so that all students can view the presentation as a whole class.

Moving forward with technology is important to all students.

Sometimes special education are not held to the same expectations as others in regards to the use of technology as a resource in their learning. In my classes I hold my students to an expectation that general ed students are held to. My hope is to gain some of the resources that other classrooms have so the students can share what they learned, and also use it to get alternative tools for me to use to teach them.
