Independent School Educators network

Hello,
We are exploring the use of the Pulse Pen for students with dyslexia and other learning disabilities. What began as a pilot initiative has led to many questions about recording classes. Some folks have raised concerns about equity, privacy, and intellectual property, to name a few. I would love to hear from others about their school's policies about recording devices in class, as well as the use of assistive technology as accommodations for students with disabilities.

Many thanks,
Laura

Hi Laura,

We have a student in our US using a Pulse Pen. She uses it extensively in her Humanities class with the approval of her teacher. I am not positive about our policy (don't have a copy on hand) but believe that students have to ask for teacher approval prior to recording.

To the extent possible, if a student needs assistive technology, we accommodate or permit them to provide the accommodation. (The student is using her own Pulse Pen, for example, and we had a student use an FM system.)

I'm looking forward to seeing what others may share, as our learning specialist is always interested in what others are using/doing.
Cheers, Laurie
