One Size Never Fits All: Tech Integration for Special Needs
Courduff, Jennifer
Learning & Leading with Technology, v38 n8 p16-19 Jun-Jul 2011
For more than seven years, Etiwanda School District in California has implemented a districtwide technology integration program that included beginning, intermediate, and advanced professional development training and support for general education teachers. Training included programs such as Intel Teach to the Future and the application of this training for the effective use of Microsoft Office programs in teaching and learning activities. In an effort to improve the programs and offer tech integration training that focused specifically on students with special needs, a practical technology support plan was implemented for teachers working in specialized academic instruction programs. Its vision and subsequent goal was to enable teachers to help students with special needs and challenges through the process of weaving existing technology resources into instructional practices in meaningful ways. Through the creative and diligent commitment of Etiwanda's specialized academic instruction teachers, students are now meeting their individualized education program (IEP) goals more quickly than ever.
