My philosophy on the use of AT in the classroom is three fold. 1. Technology should be adapted to the needs of the student. 2. Technology should increase communication 3.

AT can be used to design and support students by providing a wide variety of supports to assist the students access to the curriculum.
AT in the classroom provides learning opportunities for all students by providing multiple modalities to present curriculum. The various modalities can reinforce the same concept multiple times and provide context to increase understanding of the curriculum. Students can learn together and reinforce the knowledge gained by modeling for their peers. Students use of AT can provide another means for students to model and demonstrate their understanding of core curricular content.
