  • Jason Dewey3:30 PM+Hindie Dershowitz Exactly right Hindie, while I am a special educator, I feel that Instructional Technology should subsume the term Assistive Technology. While certain pieces of AT are strictly disability-related (e.g. adaptive pencil grips) so much of the Web 2.0 revolution is applicable to both the "average" learner as well as students with disabilities.  AT gets shunned so often because administrators dont' see it as applicable to a broad student base, but IT they eat up with a spoon because they feel that it will raise their standardized test scores a few points.  AT advocates need to leverage this propensity and target the right tech so we are accommodating our special needs students while providing excellent UDL tools.
