Reflection: Students with Disabilities Write before Writing: Learning to Take Notes from Research - Section 5: Note to Note: Individualized Note-Taking


There are times when our students are stricken by disease or some other devastating, life-altering event. That's what happened to JayCee this year. As educators it's our job to do what we can to make students welcome in the classroom, and technology offers an opportunity for doing that. So when I learned JayCee would be in my class this trimester, I decided to create a space for her from her home by having her join the class via Google Hangouts. Many days JayCee is too ill to "attend" class, but when she's up to it, she calls in and a student has a one-on-one with her. We have even had her participate in group discussions via Google Hangouts. This technology has been a game-changer in that in the past when I student is on homebound, I only communicate with them via email or the homebound instructor.

The Better Lesson team and the Master Teacher Project gets the props for making Google Hangouts a regular part of my technology routine.
