Education for students with severe cognitive disabilities is changing as a road map for learning is visualizing all things a student should learn in English Language arts and math.
Dynamic learning Maps is a computer program that measures the progress of students with cognitive disabilities. Since 2010 Neal Kingston, A Kansas University professor of psychology and education research has been working with his colleagues to build a new system measuring student progress.
“This is really the start of something that I expect is going to eventually radically change education,”said Kingston.
The road map lists everything in sequential order that students need to learn, and displays different paths a student can take to learn a skill. If the student has trouble learning a skill, teachers can use the map to backtrack and indentify gaps in the students knowledge that blocks them from advancing.
“You need a road map,” Kingston said. “That’s what we’re about.”
