Technology to Support Our Special Needs

My Students

I work with middle school students in a self contained special education classroom. These students have a variety of learning disabilities that can make accessing the curriculum even more challenging for them. These students also have many strengths which they bring to our learning community. They bring curiosity, perseverance, joy, creativity and an ability to see outside the box. Most of them have to figure out how they learn best.

These amazing students need Chromebooks to help them develop academic success and prepare them for growing up in the 21st century.

Fine motor difficulties makes handwriting difficult and typing essential. Students with dyslexia can have difficulties with reading and writing. Text to speech and speech to text technologies could help them access the curriculum and level the playing field for them.

My Project

My students need Chromebooks to help them develop academic success, by giving them the tools they need to access the curriculum, and prepare them for the world they live in. Students with learning disabilities who have access to technology, simply have more options and tools to support their learning than those without. These Lenova Chromebooks would help students stay organized, type their notes, fill in worksheets, access online class materials, look up words, find alternate sources, search for answers to their own questions, use speech to text and text to speech and open up a variety of other assistive technology options. Lenova Chromebooks would enable students to take control of their learning

With these Chromebooks, my students would not only have access to very helpful assistive technology tools, but they would also have access to the internet and the plethora of resources available.

Technology has advanced to a point where many reading and writing accommodations are easily accessible with access to technology. Here are a few examples of things these devices would allow my students to do: Typing with word processing, speech to text and text to speech, word prediction, presentation tools and typeable worksheets

The Chromebooks would not only provide assistive technology supports, but also empower students to take control of their own learning. With devices in their hands, student-centered lesson design would be possible
