The document created on this website is really a useful tool to have at all
levels, and address a question common to many teacher education students - does
the technology work. While this page is related to use for special education
(and assistive and other technologies) that topic and material contained on the
page can be used for any teacher and teacher education student. However, the
special education faculty member or teacher education student who goes to this
site with the expectation that information will be geared directly to him/her
will be disappointed.

Some of the tools and tips included in this website could make great field
experience assignments and have students become more familiar with technology in
the field, the schools, and the students.

Technical Remarks:

Of the weblinks that are provided for additional information, some of these do
not work, others take you directly to the main page for the organization,
leaving the user to find the appropriate tools that might help in evaluating
student learning.
