Job Embedded Professional Learning with the A.T. team

The Assistive Technology Team is a coordinated, multidisciplinary team supporting the needs of schools with assistive technology.

Part of our role is to provide Job Embedded Professional Learning to incorporate assistive technology into teaching and learning activities in special education classrooms and to build capacity among in-school staff to share excellent practices.  A basic knowledge of the software program(s) is needed, as software training is not part of the individual classroom support.

We are pleased to offer individual classroom support which focuses on co-planning and co-teaching. The special education teacher and itinerant resource teacher collaborate in the planning and teaching of a lesson(s) to differentiate learning through the use of assistive technology such as Read and Write Gold, Clicker 5, SMART Ideas, SMART Notebook, and ActivInspire for Promethean Boards.

This is a wonderful opportunity to gain first-hand experience using assistive technology in your classroom in an authentic and meaningful way for you and your students.

The Itinerant Teacher Referral can be accessed on the Forms page of the SEA website.
