As part of my grad school internship, I am working on a wiki for special educators in my district. Editing is currently limited to me, myself, and I, but once I “officially” launch it, I plan on opening that up so all special ed teachers, aides, and CST members in my district can edit (and tracking changes via RSS so I can jump on any vandalism pronto).
It’s a work in progress, so like a bad steak, there are some areas that are more done than others. I’ll be working on this throughout the weekend, but if you have a sec, I’d greatly appreciate any feedback you can offer. Here are my three main goals for this site:
- A demystification of some legal and practical information regarding special education in NJ via “plain English” explanations
- Empowerment of special ed teachers through information dissemination (specifically w/r/t behavior management and curricular accommodations)
- Building of community within the department through invitations to (eventually) collaborate and add to this document
You can leave comments here or hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org with any constructive feedback – I would appreciate knowing what you think is helpful about the site as well as what you think needs improvement (or what’s missing that you think should be there).
Thanks, network! Happy December!
