Dr. Rod Berger, host of Core of Education and editor for EdTechReview.in, sits down with special education teacher, Neil Virani in a new Core of Education podcast. AVer Information U.S.A’s Director of Public Relations, Kris Rangarajan, also joins the discussion and shares the impact AVer’s technology has had on the teaching profession and future efforts to support educators like Neil Virani.
Virani speaks to his work teaching special education classes in the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), and how the integration of technology is changing both the way he teaches, and the way his students learn. Neil shares a touching story about a young man with cerebral palsy and the life-changing impact the iPad has had on his ability to communicate. We also focus on the use of Aver’s TabCam and how it has freed Neil to engage with his students away from his desk.
