Source: DESIGN SQUAD: "Crash-Test Rugby"
In this video segment adapted from DESIGN SQUAD, U.S. Paralympic athlete and wheelchair rugby player Kerri Morgan asks the teams to build an automated wheelchair that simulates a defensive player on the attack. The teams use the engineering design process to create adaptive technologies.
A Teacher's Perspective (Document)
Here are suggested ways to engage students with this video and with activities related to adaptive technology.
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
