Project AT is a collaboration between RIDE, TechACCESS, The Sherlock Center for Disabilities, and East Bay Educational Collaborative. A new course for Teacher Assistants has recently been developed and will begin in June. The course will use a blended learning approach: laboratory class meetings with hands on learning as well as some online work. Teacher assistants will learn how to use the technologies that are in use in classrooms now.
Participants in the Project AT Teacher Assistants course will:
- Understand the SETT process.
- Learn how to use iPads, Chromebooks and AT to best support students.
- Practice using accessibility features and AT supports to be used in a school environment.
- Access resources to support appropriate use of AT.
Classes will meet at TechACCESS on Wednesday evenings:
June 1, 4-6
June 8, 4-6
June 15, 4-6
One additional ONLINE module (approximately one hour total) will be completed by participants, accessed by participants online at a flexible time before the final class.
