Technology evens the playing field in the classroom. With all the adaptive devices, any child can excel using technology. I found a great wikispace all about assistive/adaptive technology. The great thing is that all students will benefit from some of these devices. Have a slow writer/keyboarder? Voice recognition software/tools are an option. Have small font on a website and need to focus in on a section for the students? A magnifier is a great tool. Did you know that SMART has a magnification tool? If your district uses SMART tools then most likely you have access to the software and it has a magnifier. Andrea Bodnari created a wiki with a wealth of adaptive technology links and information.
West York teacher, Jen Swope, who was awarded Teacher of the Year from Shippensburg University touted the benefits of technology in a recent interview for Cram Session.
