March 31 to June 6, 2008 (Registration deadline: March 14, 2008)
Instructor: Gayl Bowser
Two credits offered through Portland State University - $175.00
Join us for an interactive internet class about assistive
technology implementation. After an IEP team
completes an assistive technology assessment and chooses
assistive technology tools for a child with disabilities, the work
has only begun. Implementation planning, inclusion strategies
and evaluation of the effectiveness of the assistive technology
program are essential if AT is to become a useful tool for an
assistive technology user. This course introduces the following
1. Re-SETTing after the assessment is complete
2. Aspects of assistive technology competence
3. Creating an environment for AT success
4. Evaluating effectiveness of the plan
The class will run for the spring term from March 31 through June
6, 2008. Students wishing to enroll in the class must have access
to a computer with internet capabilities. Weekly assignments and
discussions will take place on an interactive web site. Assignments
can be completed at any time. Students who enroll in the class will
be given a screen name and password for access to class discussion groups. 
Print materials, including portions of Education Tech
Points: A Framework for Assistive Technology Planning and
How Do You know it? How can you show it? will be mailed to
all students
