AT exploration classroom spotlight: George R. Gauld P.S.

Exploration Classroom for Assistive Technology
HSP Class at George R. Gauld P.S.

This year the Assistive Technology Team hosted a new exploration classroom at George R. Gauld in Vanessa Trichilo McKnight’s Home School Program (HSP) classroom.  Vanessa had previously worked with our team in the EQAO Pilot Project as well as a member of a HSP Interactive Whiteboard Learning Community group.  It was exciting to see the various A.T. tools highlighted in those projects used effectively in an authentic learning context.
Below is a photo collage of some of the ideas visiting teachers were able to take away following  the language and mathematics lessons, subsequent lesson debrief and A.T. exploration time.

Using RWG and IWB tools to support students to work independently



Visiting teachers left with lesson examples and a plan of next steps to implement assistive technology into their own classrooms.  Thank you to Ms. McKnight and her students for sharing their learning with us.
