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
