“Necessary for some, good for all’- Assistive technology

When preparing my grade 6 class for EQAO the ISSP teacher commented on how we should use the whole lab for whole class instruction on Premeir AT.  What a brilliant idea!  We spent the next few weeks taking my whole class there to practice using Premier and doing sample EQAO tests.  They all benefitted from the exposure to the format of the test and from doing some sample responses.  The students who would be using the technology for EQAO actually got to hone their tech skills before the test.  It was necessary for those few but it was good for all my students.  By teaching students to use all the resources around them for success we build them into resourceful adults.
