As concern for literacy learning heightens in educators of all students, we look to practices that promote a variety of strategies to meet the curriculum requirements of students with special needs. Technology used for literacy support is growing in practice. Teachers need ways to make informed choices amid all of the products that are being promoted for literacy in education. This session will connect the technology tools with functional skills in supporting reading and writing development. Examples of apps, software, and curriculum for vocabulary expansion, text comprehension, and writing supports will be shared.
As a result of knowledge gained at this session, participants will be able to:
- Evaluate the components of electronic books and other multimedia tools used in literacy support and instruction,
- List ways of using technologies to support reading comprehension, and
- List ways of using technologies to support the writing process and mechanics.
