Technology-aided Instruction and Intervention (TAII)
Technology-aided instruction and intervention refers to instruction or intervention in which technology is the central feature supporting the acquisition of a goal for the learner.
What Will I Learn?
The AFIRM model guides the learner through four lessons to facilitate:
- Learning basic knowledge about technology-aided instruction and intervention (TAII).
- Applying TAII in activity based scenarios that promote real-world application.
The TAII module will take approximately 2 to 2.5 hours to complete. However, the module is broken into individual lessons to help guide your learning:
|Lesson||Time to Complete|
|A Case for TAII||10 minutes|
|Lesson 1: Basics of TAII||20 minutes|
|Lesson 2: Planning for TAII||35 minutes|
|Lesson 3: Using TAII||25 minutes|
|Lesson 4: Monitoring TAII||25 minutes|
|Applying TAII||10 minutes|
