Assistive Technology in the Classroom: Research via Google Forms

This term, I am researching the use of Assistive Technology (AT) in classrooms around the world.

AT is anything that assists learners who require additional support in accessing their work and being successful. I included a video in the form to explain what AT is to help my audience.

As I work in a school where technology has yet to be introduced fully, the people I can consult are limited. In addition, my previous schools have all finished for the summer already.

To combat this dilemma, I created a Google Form that I was able to share on Twitter for anyone to be able to complete. I felt this broadened my chances of getting some information from people who had experience using AT.

My form can be accessed HERE and my paper regarding these results will be published here soon.

If you have, or know of anyone who has, experience using AT in the classroom, please share and complete this form to help a life-long learner with her research. Thanks.
