Profile: Ed Tech’s Impact on Special Education Classrooms

Neil ViraniSpecial Education teacher, Neil Virani, took time out of his LAUSD classroom to talk with the Core about the integration of technology in his classroom.

Neil shares a touching story about a AVeryoung man with cerebral palsy and the life-changing impact the iPad has had on his ability to communicate. We also focus on the use of Aver’s TabCam and how it has freed Neil to engage with his students away from his desk.

AVer Information U.S.A’s Director of Public Relations, Kris Rangarajan, joins the discussion as well and shares the impact AVer’s technology has had on the teaching profession and future efforts to support educators like Neil Virani.

Look for more profiles highlighting education technology and the special needs sector as we profile an often marginalized group of amazing human beings.

Enjoy!

    Hello Rod:

    This was an inspiring interview. You did a great job helping build a bridge between the ed world and technology builders. We’re really in the stage of “crossing the chasm.”

    Also a great example of how powerful ed tech can be for our students with disabilities and learning problems.

    Nice stuff.
