There are six assessment tasks, one in each of the five units and one located at the end of the module. The sixth and final assessment task acts as a culminating assessment covering the breadth of material offered within the entire module.
Assessment Task 3: Determining Appropriate Assistive Technology Tools
Throughout Unit 3, you have followed the student scenarios for Jesse and Tea. In this activity, you will process what you have learned. Choose one of the students. Based on that student's description, list at least two effects of the disability on the student's abilities. Then, brainstorm on a least two low-, mid-, or high-tech tools you might make available for that student to evaluate. Discuss why you chose the tools and how you think each tool would be beneficial for student use. To pass this task, your submission must contain at least two effects of the disability and two suggested assistive technology tools. Your explanation for choosing the tools should be thoughtful with little to no spelling/grammatical errors.
Assessment Task 4: Instructional Technology (IT) Reflection
Write a one-page reflection, discussing how you could integrate instructional technology into your classroom to teach the standards and support student success. In your reflection, you should answer the following questions.
- What technologies have you previously used in your classroom? How did you integrate them into the classroom?
- What new technologies were you introduced to in this unit that you would like to try with your students? Why? How would you integrate the technology into your lessons to teach the standards?
- What barriers might you encounter?
- What successes do you hope to see?
- How will you measure your success and the students' achievements?
