Are you as effective a learner as you can be? Do you tend to follow an established routine when you study, or do you select specific study tactics based on your study goals and the tasks you need to accomplish? Would you like to know more about how to incorporate the technology you received from ATBC into your overall strategic approach to studying?
The most effective learners are also highly strategic learners. But what does it mean to be a "strategic learner"? A strategic learner has a repertoire, or "toolbox," of actions ("tactics") from which to choose when faced with a study task. Strategic learners set goals and choose the tactics they believe will be best suited for meeting those goals based on the demands of the task.
The goal of the Skills Development Centre is to provide resources that will help you to effectively incorporate your assistive technology into the learning strategies you already use, and to help you build new approaches to studying with your assistive technology.
Please scroll down and explore the links below to access multimedia training videos, printable Tip Sheets, and other resources for your assistive software and hardware. You can also access tactics and tips for integrating assistive technology into your studies, and find out how to perform some basic maintenance on your computer.
