The Assistive Technology Team is excited about the Curriculum and Resource Technology (C.A.R.T.) Project. This SEA claim provides schools with a small cart of 10 laptops schools to support the inclusion of students with special education needs.
This project aims:
- To encourage the improvement of educational opportunities and success rates for all students through access to Assistive Technology supports.
- To support differentiated learning and the universal design for learning in order to effectively facilitate student success and access to curriculum in inclusive classroom environments.
- To develop and support the ongoing building of capacity among teachers, in order to support inclusion through the use of Assistive Technology.
This week, the first group of lead teachers from schools who completed the online survey posted in Direct Line, were invited to attend a working session on the documentation required for this claim. Teachers were also introduced to the school based training model designed to support student needs at their school. In addition, teachers will be invited to attend a professional development session on using assistive technology to support the teaching and learning of math and numeracy within their schools.
We look forward to receiving the claims from the participating schools and supporting the use of Assistive Technology within inclusive classroom environments throughout our system.
