Technology in Special Education

Add to FaceBookAdd to Google BookmarkAdd to Twitter

A growing number of schools are incorporating technology in their curriculum. The benefits of technology that support: active engagement, participation in groups, frequent interaction and feedback, have become quite evident.

Educators have found interactive technology can be an effective tool for students both with disabilities and without. But, until recently non public schools with students with special needs had a harder time including such devices.

Thanks, to Assembly member Joe Coto for authoring AB 1742 which makes it possible for non public schools to include technology-based learning materials in the curriculum for students with special needs.

AB 1742 passed
The State Assembly on August 2, 2010,

Passed the State Senate on July 1, 2010,

Was signed into law on August 17, 2010
by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
