Assistive Technology Rounds

Project Description

Transformational Leadership and Design Module: Currently, three groups of iDiploma students are engaged in three rounds of challenges solving for assistive technology needs. Through the rounds students will:

  1. use project type (wood working, electronics, 3D printing) to get acquainted with protocols, tools and materials available
  2. use specific deliverables to learn how we work
  3. understand human centered design practice
  4. learn how to use strengths within a team setting
  5. reflect on personal strengths and growth as well as teammates

As each round continues, the builds become more sophisticated because of the intentional pause for internal critique and reflection.

Through a partnership with Georgia Tools for Life – a non profit dedicated to testing and delivering assistive tech to people in need helped our students realize their “aHa” moment as they viewed a seemingly endless wall of assistive devices – each with it’s own story of how it made someone’s life easier – more independent – with restored dignity.
