This special episode features an excerpt from “The Practical (and Fun) Guide to Assistive Technology in Public Schools” as read by the authors! In chapter 6, “Choosing Assistive Technology Teammates,” the authors make recommendations on assembling an AT team—who should be on the team, what qualities are best in a team member and team leader, and what to avoid. This chapter provides an example of the practical advice found throughout the book while getting a taste of the authors’ unique way of driving home a point—with humor!
No new podcast episode with this post but I do have some book related news. The Practical (and Fun) Guide to Assistive Technology in Public Schools comes out in April 2010. You can pre-order your copy now from www.iste.org/chewat. Over the next few weeks there will be much more information coming out about the book, the content within, and ways you can help spread the word to other educators about the book. Here is just a taste of what is coming down the pike, not necessarily in this order:
In order to get the word out about the book, it is our hope that you will spread these files around, sharing them with other educators who might be interested in the content. Feel free to send them out via e-mail, post to your favorite social networking site (like Facebook or Twitter), tell people about them on listservs, have discussions on forums, and print out paper versions to give other educators!
Thanks in advance and I hope you enjoy the experience of reading the book as well as helping it become a success!
