Tutors With Computers
We know that everyone learns differently, and that instruction needs to be customized for each individual. Through our experience we recognize that there are limited tutoring services that personalize instruction to meet specific learning needs. As a result, we have created Tutors with Computers: a program that focuses on the individual strengths of students and uses assistive technologies to help students overcome learning challenges. Our tutors teach technology skills in combination with learning strategies that target specific needs. Students will acquire skills that will last a life time!
Tutors With Computers Process:
The initial interaction between the trainer and trainee sets the stage for the first training session and subsequent sessions. Creating a comfortable and safe learning environment that allows the students to ask questions and explore the programs openly is the goal of the trainer.
The 8 programs that can be covered within the training session are as follows:
-Premier Assistive v. 13
-Smart Ideas 5
-Kurzweil 3000 v. 12
-Dragon Naturally Speaking 10
-Read and Write
Strategic training is at the core of our instruction. We teach students how to use assistive technology software in conjunction with specific learning strategies. These strategies are tailored to meet individual learning needs. It has been shown that technology by itself has little impact on a student’s success. It is strategy paired with the technology that leads to success. Every training strategy that we use has a rationale of WHY it works! When students are made aware of WHY they are doing something, they are more likely to be successful at it.
The most important phase of our tutoring is teaching the students how to apply their technology skills to complete school work. Our tutors support each student through this process throughout the academic year.
