Technology Time with Room 3!
The children in Room 3 are all working very hard on their targets in using technology. We use switches throughout our daily routines and are practising hard to develop our skills while using the computer, switch toys and even fun appliances such as the hair dryer! We all like iPads and use these to make pictures, create sounds and read stories. Some pupils are using eye gaze technology via the Grid Pad and concentrate hard while working on this particularly tricky skill. Each child has their own motivators and using particular games and stimuli encourage them to really concentrate, even when the work is a little bit tricky. Some recent happy stories include a young man who realised when he pressed the switch his favourite ‘twinkly’ song played and very quickly understood that he needed to wait for the song to finish before pressing again, children joining up together to share operating favourite songs on the screen and a young lady generalising her eye gaze skills to make cheeky sound effects in front of all her friends during a story session!
