EDUC 674 - Assistive Learning Technologies for Students with Special Needs


Credit(s): 3
3 semester hours
Prerequisite(s): EDUC 502  
This course is an applied course focusing on two essential questions: How does Universal Design for Learning (UDL) help teachers differentiate instruction for diverse learners? And how do teachers use adaptive and assistive instructional technology to help meet the educational, social, and communicative needs of students with disabilities? Candidates will acquire the knowledge, techniques, and experience to integrate educational technology methodology with the New York State Learning Standards for students with disabilities. Populations addressed include students with disabilities in Early Childhood, Childhood, Middle Childhood, and Adolescence education. Special emphasis is placed on use of assistive technologies to help students with disabilities access the general education curriculum to the maximum extent possible in order to provide a free and appropriate education within the least restrictive environment. Ten hours of fieldwork are required.
