Technology and Learning Services for Teachers, Schools & School Districts
— Where Educators Learn How They Teach Best
Technology comes in many forms and is typically categorized as “low-tech,” “medium-tech,” and “high-tech.” Examples of low-tech assistive technology can include graphic organizers, sensory items, and even pencil grips.
There are also many more technology-focused assistive technology tools, such as electronic worksheets, screen magnifiers, or text enlargement software, TTS (text-to-speech) devices, which read printed text aloud, lecture recording software, and other devices and programs that can greatly benefit students’ learning. Whatever a student needs, there are likely assistive technology options that can help.
The first step consists of an evaluation to determine the right type of assistive technology for your student. The data from this evaluation is utilized on the IEP (Individual Education Plan), and then used to provide support to the student in the classroom environment. We monitor the student’s progress constantly and tweak wherever needed, trying out different tech tools to find what works best for a student at a specific point in time.
The key aspect is that the student receives the proper training and support after the evaluation, and that’s why Da Vinci Collaborative makes these consultations and coaching pillars of the educational process.
