Classroom Independence
Donlon, Joe
Exceptional Parent, v37 n10 p50 Oct 2007
As a technician for the Continuing Education department at Confederation College, the author was approached by an Academic Support Strategist from college's Learning Centre who was looking for a solution for one of her students. She was working with a hard-of-hearing student, and at the time, they were sitting together in the classrooms, sharing a laptop on which the strategist was typing notes about the course content. The strategist wanted the student to be able to be as independent as possible in the classroom yet still benefit from the "real time" notes she was taking for her. As a solution, the author recommended Elluminate's VRoom, a free software application, for the student and note taker. They were able to share notes using their laptops (Windows and Mac OS) in real time.
