    Since the introduction of special education, it has become America’s forgotten genre of education. There are more “specific learning” special needs students than any other disability. Other Health Impairment (OHI) is a close second. With the reinvention of general education and integration of technology, what are the new roles of special education teachers? What is the function of the resource classroom? A familiar statement from my administrators is ‘resource teachers should do what the general education teachers are doing just at a slower rate.’ Personally, I never had a clear understanding of what that actually meant. Please share how your school or school district is utilizing the special education teacher (inclusion, resource, or a combination). What are the expectations of the special education teachers? Can special education teachers function as a 21st century teacher?

    I am starting a 1 to 1 initiative at my high school next year. I am currently in the planning stage and would welcome any comments, suggestions,etc. Each student is getting a tablet. Thanks!
    • Mr. Salvucci - Mr. Whatley,
      My class is 1 to 1 with iPads this year, we had been the same with iPods for a number of years. We are transitioning to a BYOD district so classes that do not have dedicated devices can still be close to 1:1.
      I have found that it is best to use apps and tools that work across most if not all platforms. That allows students to complete assignments or work on tasks even if they do not have their school devices.

    • Mr. Whatley - Thanks for the information.

      • Mr. Guerena - I just published a survey that is collecting information from schools and districts on their iPad deployments. I am trying to push out through all the channels I know that can get the word out. The data will be shared between schools and districts to view how others are implementing MDM, professional development, digital curriculum, etc. I am going to create an executive summary in about a month once the survey has reached enough people.

        Up to this point I have not seen anything that has compiled information that would be useful to other districts that are also

    Any help getting this out would be greatly appreciated.
