Switch Activities for the Class!

Switch with plug. Problem: You want all your students more actively involved in classroom activities.


Solution: Nothing is more reinforcing than making your classmates laugh and learn!


On her blog, Teaching Learners with Multiple Special Needs,

Kate Ahern (of Easter Seals MA!) has gathered a collection of activities for making learning fun and for switch users (which are also great activities to use on the Promethean Board). Activities are organized under the following categories: 
  • Cause and Effect (and Press to Play); 
  • Single Switch Scanning/Timed Single Switch Response;
  • Two Switches;
  • Touch Screen, Mouse and Mouse Emulators (i.e. head tracking and eye gaze devices)
