ICT Integrators Meeting – Giant Steps

Hi all,

The first ICT Integrators meeting for the year was at Giant Steps : I quote from the website…

Vision
Giant Steps Sydney will continue to be recognised as the centre of excellence for the creation, implementation and dissemination of innovative and effective programs and services for individuals with autism and their families.

As well as discussing issues of ICT we were able to see how Giant Steps operates.

There was a powerful session by one of the teachers who showed us how things were done. It clearly indicates how simple is good once you establish the needs of the students. In particular I was impressed with the distinction between static and dynamic visual symbols in the teaching and learning of children with autism.

Here is an example of shadows so students know where to place things- which is the real cap?

It is a great bunch of people and I always learn a lot.
