High Five! EQAO support through the TDSB's Special Education and AT team

EQAO and Assistive Technology Pilot Project
Provided through Special Education and the Assistive Technology Team

Classrooms participating in the EQAO and Assistive Technology Pilot Project have completed the first set of in-class training sessions.  Students and their teachers have worked alongside trainers to learn how to use the functions of Read and Write Gold as an accommodation for EQAO provincial testing.

High Five Strategy
Students have responded positively to the sessions and in particular to the use of the High Five Strategy.  The High Five Strategy helps them determine which assistive technology tools to use when answering specific types of questions.  Each session ends with the chance to “High Five” the trainer for a job well done.
