Back to Basics with the SETT Framework

by Samuel Sennott

As we begin to consider closing the gap in teacher training regarding assistive technology curriculum, it is important to focus on the basics and work outward from a firm foundation. To me that involves reading and working the SETT Framework by Joy Zabala. Whether you are working from a case study or your classroom, the simple and effective way of thinking about assistive technology is invaluable for novice and experienced practitioners alike.

In the SETT Framework you:

Consider the Student, their needs, abilities, and who they are.

The Environments they work in and all that must be considered surrounding that.

What Tasks will the student accomplish?

What Tools can help with those tasks? Which are best to try first?
