Blog Post # 12

1. Watch these video's Technology in Special Education Classroom and Teaching Special Education. Think about how technology can help in the special education classrooms. Write two to three paragraphs about how you can make a difference with your students if you were teaching a special education class in cooperating technology in the class. Following the requirements in Writing a Quality Blog Post.

2. Also write a one to two paragraph on how using technology with other subjects in the classroom. Such as math, reading, social studies, arts, or other subject.

Both video's was great. I think using technology in the classroom to help students over come many obstacles in learning is great.  Technology in Special Education was a great video where the teacher use technology heavy in the classroom to make the day go by easy. Letting the students use the computers to help them with their work makes it easy for the teacher and the student. Some students have trouble reading, so they can read a long with the computer or they can just listen. I like how the young boy use the iPad to learn how to trace numbers and letters.

A child's education is very important and how they learn is even more important. Teaching Special Education was a great video. Nothing like a teacher understanding where her students is coming from and how they feel. Knowing there is a student out there  that cannot express their self because of their situation. Mrs. Vogelsang use her feedback from her students as a positive reinforcement. Knowing that she is making a difference in her student lives, makes a difference in her's. It may take some time for the students to be where they need to be but soon they will get there. She love using the Smart Board because it gets the students more involved with class activities and the laptops as well. She made a statement which is "its has to be something you want, it have to be something in your heart you want to do."

Using technology in the classroom to teach any subject can be fun. Math, reading, arts, history, or even science. Its just how you use technology to make it work for you and the students. Its so much you can do with the Smart Board, laptops, iPad's, cameras, iPod's, blogging, and even podcast. I feel that what make the learning fun, the student will love to learn. Technology is fun and learning from it besides sitting in a classroom reading from a book or listening to the teacher lecture all the time can be a great change. There will be much technology in my future classroom. It will not be new to the classroom much but I can make a difference with it with my future students.


  1. I really enjoyed your blog post, and I really enjoyed your use of links. I also enjoyed the videos that you included in this assignment. Be sure to read through your post a few times before you publish it, because I found various grammatical errors in your work. I promise that if you were to read my blog you would find just as many grammatical errors. That's why, I suppose, we're asked to comment on each other's blog posts. Great work!!!

  2. I really liked your blog post. I did see some grammatical errors that need to be fixed. Just take the time out to read through your posts before you post them. I really like how you talked about how it needs to be something you want and it needs to be in your heart. This is so true. I know many people that are taking special education jobs just because it is a job and they honestly don't want to teach special education. Always make sure whatever you do it comes from the heart. Good luck in everything you do!

  3. Hello Jeanette,

    Not to be an echo, but your post did have a lot of spelling and grammatical errors throughout. I recommend typing your posts in a Word Document, which will catch some of the small errors. i like the overall concept of your assignment, but I felt like it was a tad old news considering the content of the entire course. Good attempt though.
