Successful Science: Technology and Support for Students with Disabilities

14:00 minutes

Watch elementary school students with a range of disabilities successfully participate in a standards-based science curriculum. Visit classrooms in Cambridge, Massachusetts to see how technology, media, and materials--supported by good instruction--promote their achievement. Learn how Project ASSIST fosters collaboration among classroom and special education teachers, as well as with technology/library media specialists and science specialists. Together these educators plan, implement, and reflect on how to ensure that every student succeeds in inquiry-based science. This video also features Judith Heumann, Assistant Secretary of OSERS at the U.S. Department of Education, who compellingly explains why every student needs to be a successful science learner.
