About this Course

Understand the learning and teaching frameworks that underpin Assistive Technology (AT) integration in the mainstream classroom. Familiarise yourself with a range of AT tools to help your struggling learner learn better, and the strategies to start implementing AT in your inclusive classroom. Develop a strong foundation and professional support system to see you through your journey towards inclusive education success!

Course Synopsis

  1. Teaching and Learning in Inclusive Environments
    Learn how your worldview about disabilities and technology can influence AT outcomes in your classroom. Recognise the role of the educator in HAATing and SETTing for your student with special education needs (SEN).
  2. From Individual Struggle to Collective Success
    Understand the role AT can play for learners with SEN. Get a glimpse into the workings of an AT-infused IEP team–from referral to role-release.
  3. Toys, Tools and Techniques
    Familiarise yourself with the range of assistive technology devices, adaptations and accessibility options used in mainstream education.
  4. Scripts, Scribes and Strategies
    Deconstruct sample AT-enabled lesson plans, then design your own lesson plan for your inclusive classroom/remediation session.
  5. Case studies
    Gain insights from stories shared by clients and teachers alike. Brainstorm the challenges and the rewards  when IEPs are integrated into classroom teaching and learning.
  6. Q&A
    Ask your burning questions and craft forward plans to help your school realise your SEN students’ potentials.
