The Center for Educational and Assistive Technology (CEAT) promotes the benefits of Universal Design for Learning by providing technology and support to all members of the Southern community, as well as to the community at large. Recognizing the fact that not all students learn the same way, the Center provides multiple approaches to learning and expression through a variety of technology solutions.
CEAT provides assistive technology and services for students registered with the Center for Academic Success and Accessibility Services and educational technology instruction for all SCSU students, faculty and staff.
Additionally, the Center for Educational and Assistive Technology provides assistive technology support to members of the community at large. The Center provides assistive technology assessments, trainings and presentations in assistive technology and assistive technology consultations to persons with disabilities as well as Connecticut K-12 schools.
Through a grant from the CT Tech Act Project the Center runs a Technology Loan Program that provides laptops and iPads with assistive technology to Connecticut K-12 schools.
The Center also conducts research on the use of educational and assistive technology.
