Physical disability, multiple disabilities, supporting disabled students in the classroom. For students with physical handicaps, self-image is extremely important. Teachers need to ensure that the child's self image is positive. Physically handicapped students are aware of the fact that they are physically different that most others and that there are certain things they cannot do. Peers can be cruel to other children with physical handicaps and become involved in teasing, casting insulting remarks and excluding physically handicapped children from games and group type activities. Physically handicapped children want to succeed and participate as much as they can and this needs to be encouraged and fostered by the teacher. The focus needs to be on what the child CAN do - not can't do. Strategies that help: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. I hope these insights will help you to maximize the learning opportunities for the physically handicapped child. See also accommodating students with physical handicaps in physical education.

DigitaLang I talked to a machine this morning. I actually had quite a nice chat. The machine was a robotic teacher. And I learned some interesting stuff. That is scary. The E-Learning and Digital Cultures MOOC has added a teacher-bot this year, whose job it seems to be to fire interesting and provocative quotes out willy-nilly at the MOOC participants. This bot isn’t just an automated sequence of posts and quotes, it’s actually got free rein over the course’s Twitter account and is posting little nuggets of thought-provoking information (seemingly) based on what you actually write in the course’s twitter stream. The “discussion” I had with the bot was on the subject of “post-humanism.” While I was trying to figure out what the hell “post-humanism” means, the teacher bot led me on a merry chase looking up quotes and obscure academic references, which had the interesting side effect of “ambush teaching” me. @EDCMOOC How does the “uncanny valley” effect fit into posthumanism? Snarky of me, I know. - A Primary Website - Educational Games and Activities for Kids Tools Vocabulary Word Bank Advertisement. is a user-supported site.
