“Mastery of assistive and mainstream technologies provides access to digital content, contributes to the development of literacy and academic success, facilitates social interaction among peers, encourages independence and is essential to future education and employment”

LEARNstyle’s Coaching

LEARNstyle’s training is designed to enhance and complement the work of the vision teacher in the delivery of the expanded core curriculum (ECC) with a shared goal of setting the student up for success in school and beyond. Vision itinerants carry the responsibility of  teaching the nine essential skill areas of the ECC one of which is assistive technology. Vision technologies can be the most diverse and complicated of all technologies used in education. Each student’s assortment of technology tools can vary making it even harder to develop a level of proficiency needed.

Every time our LEARNstyle coach comes to provide support, both my student and myself achieve an increased level of knowledge, comfort and efficiency with using her technology.”
– Vision Itinerant Teacher, October 2019

Professional Learning

In addition to individualized student and teacher coaching, LEARNstyle can also provide professional learning sessions for Vision Itinerants and teaching staff. Sessions can be adapted to the technologies within your board. We go beyond the operational basics of a specific device or software/app and share tips and strategies to support students in developing independent usage of their equipment with speed, automaticity and problem-solving skills needed to be successful.
