The UDL Educational Technology Guide 2019-2020: Technology for Special Education

John F. O'Sullivan

Section 3 Homework

Once upon a time, special education teachers in the resource room used to check student planners. Students carried a book and were expected to write down all their assignments. Today students often have technology solutions to help keep track of assignments. Google Classroom has a calendar that lists assignments. Schools have websites and other tools to help organize assignments. With all of this helpful technology, teachers still write assignments on a whiteboard, if you can believe that. The best educational technology response to this are several homework apps. If the students have a mobile phone, the one thing I find is they always have it on them. People tend to get anxiety if they lose their phones. Spending a little time getting students to create access to documents on their phones will at least give you some options.
