USE WHATCHYA GOT!The Philosophy:Use the technology that is already in place firstto meet the needs of students.This Philosophy means… p y Consider low tech strategies first then move to high first, tech as needed Implement technology that is least restrictive Better rate of adoption and less chance of abandonment Use a Universal Design for Learning approach All students (not just those in special education) will benefit You’ll save money money!!!! You’ll save time!!!! ’ time!!!! Students implement strategies faster
