SETT is an acronym which stands for the following: S=Student, E=Environment, T=Tasks, T=Tools. Joy Zabala, the workshop facilitator, is the creator of the SETT Framework. The goal of the framework is to guide teachers, specialists, clinicians, and parents to work together collaboratively to select assistive technology for an individual student who has disabilities.
By participating in this six-week workshop, you will:
This guide will give you an overview of the workshop. There are technical tips, instructions for using conferencing, and a week-by-week syllabus. This guide is available from the Guide link on the toolbar at the bottom of each Web page.
To help you with keeping track of what to do week to week, the SETT home page will have weekly announcements and the current weeks tasks. In addition, the facilitator, Joy Zabala will post commentary ongoing during the workshop. Be sure to check the SETT home page and the Joy Zabala link each time you come online.
To feel comfortable with the conferencing system, we suggest that the best way to learn is to practice as much as you can during the first week. This guide has instructions for posting and reading, but actually doing it is probably the simplest way to learn. Don't hesitate to post as many test messages to the Technical Tips discussion as you need.
We recommend that you look over this guide prior to the start of the workshop. If you have any questions, please contact Denise Ethier.
We look forward to your participation and we want to facilitate it as best we can!
Joy Zabala and the NCIP Staff
