We are pleased that the subscription to Infinitec (Infinite Potential Through Technology) purchased by ZED in the 2011-12 school year will continue to be funded through Region 10 Low Incidence Projects for the seven member districts in 2014-15.
Infinitec is the technology program of United Cerebral Palsy of Greater Chicago (UCPGC). The mission of Infinitec is to advance independence and promote inclusive opportunites for children and adults through technology. This is a non-profit, member-based organization currently supporting Illinois and Kansas. Current grant opportunities have also connected Infinitec with Minnesota, Georgia and California.
A password-protected Web-based portal (myinfinitec.org) offers educational staff access to a range of curriculum supports and professional learning opportunities 24/7. There are 130+ video presentations from experts in the field and strategies for implementing technology with at-risk and special education students. Online quizzes for CEU credit, resource and research links, pre-made differentiated lesson plans, summarized instruction sheets on how to use common assistive technology devices, and alternative activities are listed by subject.
