Today’s students are a group of digital natives; they are competent users of technology and often adapt to new technologies quickly. By shifting our traditional model of AT implementation, focusing largely on teaching students how to use a tool, to an updated model that begins with “how” but focuses largely on “why” and “when” to use a tool, we can increase both the rates and quality of student AT use. This presentation will explore on a coaching inspired approach to creating effective AT users in early childhood through high school settings.
- Identify the two primary shortcomings of a traditional (teaching only how to use the tool) approach to teaching AT.
- Explore the three main components of a coaching inspired model for AT implementation.
- Identify 2-4 scenarios in which this model could be used in their current work.
