When you hear the word “sinistra”, what word does it sound close to? It sounds closely to the word “sinister” and with that you think sinistra means dark or evil. However, sinistra’s meaning has no thing to do with darkness or evil; it is Latin for left or left handed. With this misunderstanding of the word sinistra and other reasons, left-handed people faced years of social and religious oppression. Hello, I’m Josh Haxton a lefty and I have always been curious about the history of left handers. Through my research, I was able to end by curiosity.

Name at least three items that could be considered AT and describe how those devices could support a student with a disability in the classroom.
This article focuses on the many forms of technology in relation to special education. The article discusses the “high” and “low” forms of technology that is available for students with special needs to help “bypass” or “compensate” for their disabilities. The article goes on to survey the current status of assistive technology for the special education population. In the end, the article uncovers that the use of assistive technology for the special education population is promising though uncertain. Assistive technology has proven to be beneficial for students with learning disabilities, as it would empower them to work beyond their normal capabilities (Lewis, 1998).
Nearly all colleges and universities have adopted some form of anti-discrimination/harassment policies. These policies are meant to ensure that no student will be discriminated against due to race, color, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age or disability. Many universities have adopted more specific policies regarding “hate
With new technology comes new ways to let disabilied people use more items. An example is, voice recognition screen readers can help peole who are blind. For instance, eye-tracking programs can make using computers simple for people who can´t move their hands.
In this artifact, I researched for alternative technological tool(see Assistive technology.doc) for students with disabilities to represent how technology could be a great assistance for them.

There has been a recent outrage by a woman named Miriam Zeigler, this pent up anger over the course of many years had finally burst once her article was published by The Age on May 6th 2010. Her opinion piece entails her experience over the years of being a left hander, and the everyday discriminations she faces. This entire piece was sparked by her encounter at the supermarket, when she went to sign her receipt and it was angled to the right, causing her the inconvenience of having to move it to the left side. She believes that our ‘right-handed society’ needs to cater more to the left-handers of the world, as they are tired of the discrimination and wish to be treated fairly, and not as a mockery. She makes her appeal to the right-handers of the world trying to raise their awareness on this issue, she gathers this audience to make right-handers understand their ‘privilege’ and their everyday rudeness towards left-handers. Her tone in her first paragraph starts off peaceful however, in a quick tonal shift she becomes quite aggressive in her voice. Throughout the piece, excluding the seemingly
In the Overview of Assistive Technology and Implementation Video by Margina Busby, she gives a lecture on what assistive technology is and how it can be used in the classroom.

Let’s Be Lefties for a Day Margaret Lo Chamberlain University Let’s Be Lefties for a Day As times are changing, so is the world’s vision of normal. Discrimination and segregation were a huge part of history, but the fact is that in this modern society, culture diversity is the new norm. Companies and organizations incorporate culture diversity in the workplace due to the benefits of various experiences, language skills, and productivity. Employees are the face of the company, and if they have the mentality of prejudice and ethnocentrism, it can affect the success of the business. While most people understand that the world is a melting pot, discrimination still exists in this world and these people are at a disadvantage. Whether it is because they are living in the past, had a bad experience, or have not been exposed to it, the world is a melting pot of culture, gender, and ethnicity. Regardless of how we are different, once “we can learn to appreciate that differences do matter and that becoming aware of those differences will make interactions with others much easier” (Devry University, n.d.).
History Behind The Technique From the start, as fate would have it, I set forever on the path of a left-handed magician. For the record, I’m a right-hander who performs magic as a lefty.
My invention would be called the NeverLand Ink. This invention would be the size of a normal pen and it looks like a normal pen, but it is not a normal pen. The ink in the pen never runs out, hence the name NeverLand Ink, since, on Neverland, you don’t
In "Why do Most Mothers Cradle their Baby in their Left Arms?" Desmond Morris describes four possible explanation for mothers to cradle their babies in their left arms.

PURPOSE What is the effect of using your dominate hand vs your non-dominant hand when testing sensitivity? The purpose of answering this question is to help scientists understand if your hand dominance affects your sensitivity. One reason I chose this topic is because I have previously seen a similar experiment in a museum, and I would like to test one of my own. Another reason I chose this topic is because I am very interested in the outcome. I hope to discover if hand dominance influences sensitivity. This project will test your dominant hand vs your non – dominant hand when testing sensitivity.
