Special Programs Get New Interactive Technology
As a part of the district strategic plan to ensure the availability of 21st century tools for all students, CISD has invested in TAP•it, an intended touch technology that allows optimal interface for teaching students with special needs.
TAP•it is the first ADA compliant interactive learning station designed to provide accessibility to all students. It recognizes the difference between an arm resting upon the screen and a finger or assistive device intentionally “tapping” an image. This new technology is within reach for students using wheelchairs, walkers or other mobility devices, providing full access to the screen with easy adjustments that adapt to individualized needs.
Cottonwood Elementary, Wilson Elementary, CMS North, CMS West, and Coppell High School currently have use of TAP•it. The department of Intervention Services plans to have this interactive technology in all special program classrooms by 2013. Learn more about TAP•it technology here.
