The Discovering Assistive Technologies tutorial has been created as part of the California School Library Association's Web 2.0 Team Discovery Learning program to encourage us to experiment and learn about the new and emerging technologies that are reshaping the context of – and access to -- information on the Internet today. The Discovering Assistive Technologies program contains direct links and offers suggestions for ways to incorporate these tools into the classroom, at work or at home. We offer ideas to "jump start" your thinking and hope you will share your ideas as you learn how to use assistive technologies.
