Edtech 541 Adaptive and Assistive Technology

  1. 1. • Mild forms tend to be most prevalent type of disability • Includes learning disabilities, serious emotional disabilities and mental retardation • Needs assistance with reading, writing, memory and retention of information • Key is to balance remediation of skills and development of higher level thinking skills
  2. 2. National Library of Virtual Manipulatives This is a powerful website that offers interactive tools for students to learn a variety of math topics of varying difficulties. Students can access the manipulatives to learn math concepts visually and kinesthetically. This website is good for any student to master their math skills but it particularly assists students with learning disabilities.
  3. 3. Glencoe Virtual Math Manipulatives Students with cognitive disabilities may struggle to conceptualize difficult math concepts. This technology provides a blank canvas and a variety of tools for students to manipulate and learn from. Math teachers have been using Algetiles and Geoboards for decades to teach students math concepts with a hands-on approach. This website provides these tools in a technological setting for free.
  4. 4. • Affects a person’s mobility or agility • May experience gross or fine motor skill difficulties • Provide students with alternative methods of accessing keyboard, mouse and/or monitor • Goal is to identify appropriate tools for access and control that allow the student to participate at the maximum level
  5. 5. Math Talk Math Talk is the leading software in speech recognition mathematics. This technology allows students who struggle with fine motor skills the ability to speak their solutions and have them typed out. This offers students with a physical disability the opportunity to do math without a keyboard, mouse or pencil. This program works for developing graphs also. The math notebook products that are compatible with Dragon Naturally Speaking are available from Metroplex Voice Computing.
  6. 6. EmPower Program The FX software is designed to make it easier to type, draw and graph math problems. Many students with physical disabilities find mathematics and science extremely difficult to write. The equations and graphics are too difficult to construct with standard tools. These products are designed to make mathematics and science teacher's jobs easier but many students with special needs have found that they also provide the assistance they need. Efofex has four software program for math: FX equation, FX draw, FX graph and FX stat. All of these programs make it easier to write math problems strictly using the keyboard. The EmPower Program provides all of these programs to students with special needs free of cost.
  7. 7. • Impairments associated with the loss of hearing or vision • These disabilities are identified as hearing impaired, deaf, partially sighted or blind. • Assistive Technologies such as speech to text, narration, magnification or screen readers are widely used for persons with these disabilities.
  8. 8. Talking Calculator The Orion TI-84 Plus Talking Graphing Calculator is a modified TI-84 Plus with a small attachment that adds accessibility and additional controls. American Printing House for the Blind partnered with Orbit Research and Texas Instruments to make this powerful calculator accessible. A graphing calculator is a must for any high school math student and now this tool is fully functional for blind and visually-impaired.
  9. 9. Math Daisy This software works with Microsoft Word and Mathtype programs to provide a text to speech version of documents for students with visual impairments. Since many teachers use these tools to write worksheets, quizzes and tests for math class, this program would be a valuable technology for students with sensory disabilities.
  10. 10. Khan Academy Khan Academy is a wonderful resource for any math student to use to better understand the lessons in math class. This website provides instructional videos on practically every math topic from addition to Calculus. In 2011, Khan Academy made all of their videos universally accessible by providing closed captioning options for the hearing impaired and for viewers who speak different languages.
  11. 11. • Face similar academic challenges as disabled students and similar technology tools and strategies can be implemented to promote success. • Learning difficulties include struggling with math computations and concepts, lack of motivation, and difficulty remembering a sequence of tasks. • Goal is to use technology to provide powerful and motivating opportunities to engage in learning activities.
  12. 12. BrainPOP BrainPop is an educational website with over 1,000 short animated movies for students in grades K-12. This resource provides students and educators with quizzes, supplemental information and related materials, covering a variety of subjects of science, mathematics, engineering and technology. Presenting math in a fun, engaging manner like this can be beneficial to all students but can be especially motivational to an at-risk student.
  13. 13. Math Motivation This website provides lesson plans, videos and activities to motivate high school math students that do not see the relevance of the subject in their lives. There are numerous resources for showing students real world examples and helping them answer the nagging question of, “When am I ever go to use this stuff?” At Risk students that will benefit from seeing the value of learning the subject at hand.
  14. 14. • Need services and activities not ordinarily provided by the school in order to be challenged and achieve high standards • Goal is to provide students with the tools to engage in higher level research and learning experiences that properly align with their learning abilities
  15. 15. Problems of the Week The Math Forum at Drexel University provides a wonderful website filled with resources and tools for math educators and students alike. There is a section of the site devoted to the problem of the week. There is a challenging problem listed every week for students of primary grades, math fundamentals, pre-algebra, algebra, geometry and trigonometry/calculus to attempt and submit online. At the end of the week, the solution to this problem is posted and a new problem is provided. This website provides resources for teachers to implement these Problems of the Week into their lessons and there is also a library of previous POWs. This resource allows gifted students to challenge themselves and develop higher order thinking skills.
  16. 16. Try Engineering Tryengineering.org is a resource for students to learn about engineering and engineering careers. The goal is that this site will help young people better understand what engineering means, and how an engineering career can be made part of their future. Students can use this site to research the lifestyles, education and accomplishments of engineers as well as participate in hands-on learning experiences in the field. This is a great resource for gifted and talented math students that may be considering a career in engineering.
