Assistive technology is a great tool in technology for students with disabilities. I believe that all things should be designed for all people. Since I work in a computer lab, I knew many of the great features that the computer has to offer for students with disabilities. I did not have too hard of a time completing this project. I found the instructions very simple and easy to understand. The example was also a great help. I did not like having to change the settings back and forth. It even distorted my screen for a few minutes because it got frozen up. I did not have troubles with any of the settings in particular, but I did find some easier to use than others.
In my classroom, I tend to use the magnifier and sound for several students. Many of my inclusion students can not read the documents on the computer, so we use the sound to convey the message. Several of my students are also young and have not had their eyes assessed, so they like to see the print on the screen bigger. I think all of the tools presented in this project are very helpful for not only the teacher but also for students. I am personally very thankful for assistive technology, and I know it is a necessary to make my job smooth and successful.
The PowerPoint I created shows the many different tools I used through assistive technology. Below is the link:
